The National Weather Service in Boulder, Colorado issued a severe thunderstorm warning just after 9 p.m. Wednesday, according to CNN. They also warned of winds up to 50 mph and hail the size of golf balls.

Tomlinson’s show was at first delayed due to the weather and fans were encouraged to stay in their cars, the venue tweeted, according to The Associated Press. Hours later, the venue announced that Tomlinson’s show was officially postponed.

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,” said Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Twitter. “And, we’re having a little talk with Mother Nature about this weather business at Red Rocks.”

The venue said that ticket holders will receive information about refunds directly from Live Nation, and that “we hope to see Louis Tomlinson and his band back at Red Rocks soon.”

Tomlinson took to Twitter following the cancellation of his show.

“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,” Tomlinson said.

On Twitter, West Metro Fire Department said that seven people were taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Around 80 to 90 people were treated at the scene, some with cuts and broken bones, the fire department said.

West Metro Fire Department spokesperson Ronda Scholting told the AP that some of those injured were hurt by the hail. Some were injured by trying to get out of the storm.
