Kenny Chesney is left “devastated” after the death of a fan at one of his concerts.
The 54-year-old star admitted it was “heartbreaking” to say that a woman was killed after falling off an escalator at Empower Field in Denver’s Mile High Stadium at the end of her show on July 30.
He told the Denver Post newspaper: “I was devastated to learn of someone’s loss after my show,” Chesney told The Denver Post on July 31. “So much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver. [at the show] – And it breaks my heart to hear this. Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together and the love we share makes us even greater.
“There are no words for the woman who came to share that love. For the loss of her friends and family, I mourn with them and for them.”
Denver Police spokesman Nate Magee revealed that the woman was sitting on the railing of the escalator when she fell, although she was unsure of the specific details of her death, including how far she fell or if she was at the site or She later died in the hospital.
However, he does not think there was any foul play involved.
She said: “In my understanding, there was nothing like that. It was just an accidental fall, I don’t think anyone pushed him or anything like that.”
