A hailstorm rained down on people attending a concert at Red Rocks Wednesday (Jun. 21, 2023) night. Large hail stones pummeled concertgoers just before 9:30 p.m., sending seven people to the hospital.

That was before performer Louis Tomlinson took the stage, and the concert had to be canceled.

Severe storms moved through the Denver area Wednesday night, with the National Weather Service office in Boulder warning of “golf ball-sized hail or larger” near Red Rocks. People were urged to take cover from the storm. Red Rocks initially told fans the concert was under a weather delay, then officially postponed the show.

Videos from the world-famous concert venue show heavy rain and hail covering the amphitheater, which hit cars and injured some concertgoers.

The West Metro Fire Rescue in Lakewood, Colorado, said seven people were transported to area hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries, and a total of 80 to 90 people were treated at the scene for injuries, including cuts and broken bones.
