Sugarland, the country duo of Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, played to a packed house in an energized and emotional tribute concert to the 7 victims killed in the stage collapse last August just before they were supposed to go on. Jennifer told the crowd, “Obviously we are here in October — we were supposed to do this show in August. Obviously, the stage is different, you are different and we are different. We are all changed by what happened then,” she said. “But we are going to try to give you the best show that we can and to celebrate healing with you and to celebrate life and music with you here tonight.”
Concert goers were asked to donate to the Indiana State Fair Victims Fund, which has already raised nearly $1 million dollars.
