Sugarland Plans Memorial For Indiana Collapse Victims

Country duo Sugarland says it's planning a private memorial in Indiana to honor five fans who died when a stage and rigging collapsed at the Indiana State Fair last weekend.

Sugarland says in a letter posted on the group's website that the event will be held after families of the victims hold their own services and memorials. The duo will resume its touring schedule Thursday in Albuquerque, N.M.

Indiana State Fair officials say the proceeds from a concert Thursday by Train and Maroon 5 will benefit the victims of the stage collapse. The concert has been relocated to downtown Indianapolis.

Organizers say the two groups are donating their performance fees to a fund for the victims. The fair and venue management will donate the concert proceeds.
