Sugarland announces plans to hold memorial for stage collapse victims

Sugarland was about to go on stage.

Following the shocking tragedy this past weekend where a stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair caused five people to pass away, one of the bands in attendance is doing everything they can to help and honor those who ended up suffering after simply attending the show to have a good time.

In a statement via their official site, country duo Sugarland (who was about to go on stage before high winds ended up causing the mishap) announced that they will be back at some point in the future for a private memorial:

“We are in the process of planning a private memorial in Indiana, to honor those fans who [passed]. We would first like to hold space so that their families can have time to go through their own services and memorials.

“Until that time we are holding vigil for them. We join them on their mourning benches.” 

Stay tuned — we will have more on the duo’s future plans to return to the state as it breaks.
