“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,” said police spokesman Nate Magee.
Doors opened for the Kenny Chesney concert at 4pm on Saturday and the event was scheduled to start an hour later at 5pm.
It is believed the woman fell after the concert was over.
Chesney released a statement on Sunday: “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.
“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.”
