Magee said Sunday he didn’t know if alcohol played a role in the fall but believes the woman wasn’t pushed or jostled. According to witness testimonies, the fall was unintentional, and no one pushed her. Saturday’s Kenny Chesney show began at 5 p.m.
Doors opened at 4 p.m. Chesney: “I was devastated to learn of someone’s death after our event.” Denver had so much enthusiasm and heart last night; hearing this is terrible. Precious life. Sharing music and love makes us stronger. No words for the woman who came to share the love. I sorrow for her friends and family.”
According to reports from CBS Colorado, in 2015, a guy fell from one level of the stadium to the level below because he was going after a hat that had blown off due to the wind. The police stated that they had a strong suspicion that drunkenness played a role in the tragic event.
A year later, a father of five who was watching a Denver Broncos game fell many flights of a stairwell. He was hospitalized with severe injuries. A lawsuit alleged that the stairs did not meet the required safety standards. According to CBS Colorado, the lawsuit was resolved in a way that avoided going to court.
Whether it’s my island friends, musicians like Grace Potter, several women on my team, or any of you, @noshoesnation… some women have a way of embracing life that’s unlike anyone else. And I think that's awesome.
