Sugarland is planning a memorial for the five fans who died last Saturday when the stage collapsed before their performance at the Indiana State Fair.
Band members Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush made the announcement in a statement this afternoon after taking time to “emotionally process the magnitude and gravity” of the accident.
“We are in the process of planning a private memorial in Indiana, to honor those fans who died,” said the group. “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.”
