“Devastated about the show tonight, hope everyone’s ok, I’ll be back! Even though we didn’t play the show I felt all of your passion! Sending you all love!” –Louis Tomlinson 

Wild scenes from Colorado’s iconic venue Red Rocks where a violent hail storm rolled through Wednesday night pelting fans with golf ball sized hail stones as they waited for a Louis Tomlinson concert. Out of the 6,000 people in attendance 80+ were treated on scene and 7 were taken to the hospital with injuries ranging from cuts to broken bones.

Red Rocks addressed the situation a series of Tweets:

“We want to take a moment to acknowledge the severe weather event at Red Rocks last night and offer our sincere best wishes to everyone affected by last night’s storms across Colorado.
We hope to see Louis Tomlinson and his fans back soon under clear Colorado skies – we know this was supposed to be a special night and many of you traveled long distances to be here, which makes decisions regarding the postponement or cancellation of shows even harder.
The Red Rocks crew would like to thank the teams at West Metro Fire, Stadium Medical, Argus, Aramark, Denver Fire, Denver Police, the Mountain Parks Rangers, our own staff and fans for their work and cooperation in a fast-developing situation.
And, we’re having a little talk with Mother Nature about this weather business at Red Rocks. Between a wind-whipped opening night wildfire, snow showers, torrential rains and hail, it’s been a crazy six weeks in the foothills.”
