Kenny Chesney is in mourning for a woman who died of fatal injuries during his concert in Denver, Colorado on July 30.
The victim fell down an escalator. Kenny Chesney, 54, issued these words in an official letter to The Denver Post on Sunday, July 31. I was shocked to learn of the passing of someone following our event, according to Chesney.
The people of Denver were so happy and so emotional last night, and to hear this is terrible. The country music artist concluded by saying, Life is valuable.
The act of listening to and playing each other's music ties us closer together, and the connection we share makes us into so much more.
I am sorry for the suffering she has caused to her friends and family, and I grieve together with them and for them.

According to a Denver Police Department spokeswoman, the incident occurred after the event at about 10:52 local time at Empower Field at Mile High, which is the home stadium of the Denver Broncos.
A woman, who appeared on the escalator prior to the collapse, but has not been identified in public, was injured in the fall. It is not known at this time whether she was taken to a hospital or whether she died at the stadium.
The Denver Police Department classified the incident as an accidental fatality at the time. The agency refuted claims that the woman had been pushed or shoved prior to the fall.
Magee stated on Sunday to The Denver Post that, to my understanding, there was none of that, that it was just an accident, and that no one pushed her or anything like that, and that he had reached that conclusion based on what he had been told.

The Denver Police Department provided a clarification on its official Twitter account, stating that if circumstances are found to be problematic, we will update information on this thread. Additionally, a statement was issued by the managing organization for the stadium.
The band posted a tweet on their official Twitter account, saying, "We extend our sincere condolences to the family and friends of the woman involved in the tragic incident that occurred at the end of Saturday's concert at Empower Field at Mile High."
There is nothing more essential than ensuring the safety of our guests, and the Stadium Management Company is in discussions with the Denver Police Department as it investigates this horrible incident at this time.
This is only the third unfortunate event to happen in a row of unfortunate events that have recently resulted in the deaths of concertgoers.
