A concertgoer is loaded into an ambulance after being injured by a storm while waiting in line for a Backstreet Boys concert in Thackerville, Oklahoma, on Saturday, Aug. 18, 2018.

The Backstreet Boys say they will try to reschedule a concert at the WinStar World Casino and Resort in Oklahoma, after strong winds blew large metal trusses at the venue's entrance onto a group of fans.

WinStar spokeswoman Kym Koch Thompson said that around 150 people in line "did not heed staff's warnings".

According to the casino, about 150 people waiting in line for the Backstreet Boys concert were still outside when 70-80 miles per hour winds and heavy rain hit, knocking down the trusses outside the entrance.

Kevin Richardson, a member of the Backstreet Boys who were slated to play Saturday night at Winstar World Casino in Thackerville, Okla. tweeted around 6:30 that a tent collapsed and some people seeking shelter there were injured.

But pollen grains are also rare, as they are very tiny and can only be found using powerful microscopes after careful preparation. The fossilized insect is reportedly related to an Australian beetle that's still in existence and remain pollinating cycads.

Fourteen people were injured and received care onsite before going to nearby hospitals, according to the statement. Of the 14 people taken to a hospital, two have been released. Love County emergency responders, Lighthorse Police and Oklahoma Highway Patrol are on scene.

After the structure collapse, Richardson said the band would not be able to perform and promised to make it up to fans.

"Waiting and praying for our fans that were injured".

Carter echoed the "safety first" sentiment earlier, as well.

"We have been looking forward to a great show with the Backstreet Boys and 98 Degrees for many months", the statement said.
