TERRIFYING video shows Louis Tomlinson fans running for cover as they were pelted by hail at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado.
The concert has been postponed after hail pummeled the crowd as they waited for the One Direction star to come on stage on Wednesday night.
Video showed first responders outside the amphitheater as some concertgoers took to Twitter with reports of broken fingers and hands, among other injuries.
Hail could be seen covering the seating area of the outdoor venue.
"Tonight was the scariest night of my life. It started pelting people with hail at Red Rocks and my sister and I luckily found shelter under a sign," one fan tweeted alongside a harrowing video.
"I am bleeding and have huge bumps on my head from the hail. Hoping everyone made it out safely."
Another fan responded: "I'm so sorry. We just left the same show. I have a broken hand from the hail."
A third concertgoer tweeted an image of a large chunk of hail in her hand.
"Golf ball-sized hail. Turns out it hurts. Quite a bit. Sorry your first show at Red Rocks got ruined @Louis_Tomlinson," wrote another person.
Witnesses said that people were covered in welts and bruises as West Metro Fires Rescue crews worked with the venue on medical treatment.
