All of the people injured were taken to hospital.

"We know that fans often suffer through inclement weather for their favorite acts, but this was an unusual event and our thoughts are with those who were injured during this storm", Winstar World spokeswoman Kym Koch Thompson said in the statement.

Kevin Richardson, a member of the Backstreet Boys, tweeted about the situation and said that the status of the show is to be determined. Lead singer Nick Carter said he was praying for the injured fans. The Backstreet Boys did confirm that the concert was canceled via Twitter. Two have already been released.
