Per the Denver Police, an adult female concertgoer fell to her death AFTER the show ended.
She was riding along an escalator railing and tragically fell off to the concourse below at approximately 10:52 PM.
The police say she died as a result of her injuries and there was no foul play suspected in her untimely death.

Police spokesman Nate Maggie informed The Denver Post, “To my understanding, there was none of that, it was just an accidental fall, I don’t think anyone pushed her or anything like that.”
On Saturday, the official Denver Police Dept.’s Twitter account issued multiple messages regarding the fan’s death.
“ALERT: #DPD is conducting an outside death investigation at 1701 Bryant Street. The #Denver Office of the Medical Examiner will release the victim’s ID and cause of death. If circumstances are deemed suspicious, we will update information on this thread. #Denver,” the tweet read.

The woman has not been publicly identified and Magee did not know her age. He also did not know how far she fell or whether she was taken to a hospital or died at the stadium.
Chesney issued a statement to TDP expressing his deep sadness and condolences.
“I was devastated to learn of the loss of someone after our show,” Chesney shared. “There had been so much joy, so much heart coming from the people of Denver last night — and to hear this is heartbreaking. 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.”
Kenny published a pre-show video to Instagram on Monday, August 1.
Kenny, his mom and crew were all dancing to Earth, Wind & Fire’s “September” before the show kicked off, and it appeared everyone was in very happy spirits.

It’s unclear if the video was taken before his Denver show or prior to another show at a different location.
Regardless, his statement about music bringing people together and the love people share stands true.
