'I grieve with them and for them': Kenny Chesney DEVASTATED by fan's death at Colorado concert
After discovering that a fan had passed away whilst watching one of his shows in Colorado, Kenny Chesney expressed that he was heartbroken. On Saturday in Denver, 54-year-old Chesney had a performance at Empower Field at Mile High. Several stories state that a lady slipped from an escalator ledge after the event and died as a result.
Police informed The Denver Post that the woman was seated on the escalator handrail when she fell to the floor beneath. According to the site, police authorities are looking into the incident as a "mishap" because they don't think she was deliberately pushed. Authorities have not released the female's identity.

The Empower Field at Mile High released a statement saying, "We extend our deepest sympathies to the loved ones of the woman involved in the tragic incident."
Chesney expressed to the publication his "devastation" after hearing of the person's passing. "I was devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show. There had been so much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver last night—and to hear this is heartbreaking," Chesney said in a statement.
"Life is precious. Sharing music brings us together, and that love we share makes us so much more. For the lady who came to share that love, there are no words. For her friends and family’s loss, I grieve with them and for them," he added.
American country music performer, composer, and guitarist Kenneth "Kenny" Arnold Chesney has released over 20 albums. The musician has also created over 40 top 10 songs on the US Billboard Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts, 32 of which hit number one.
The 'Here And Now Tour 2022' was officially launched by Kenny Chesney on Saturday, April 23, at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, Florida. This tour marked his eagerly anticipated comeback to the spotlight since his last performance in May 2019.
Fans were thrilled to see Chesney return to the stage for the fully sold-out performance. The audience was at its peak for the show and they cheered while Chesney took the stage and sang 'Beer in Mexico' nonstop for more than two hours.
The professional set featured songs like 'Summertime', 'We Do', 'No Shoes, No Shirt, No Problems', 'Get Along', and 'Knowing You', among numerous other songs. Carly Pearce, Old Dominion, and Dan + Shay provided backing for the performances.
On his 'Here and Now' Tour, Chesney still has eight venues left to perform at. In Foxboro, Massachusetts, he will conclude the string of performances.
