Sugarland returned to Indiana on Friday night (28Oct11) to play a free concert in honour of those tragically killed during a stage collapse there in August (11).
The country group scrapped its set at the Indiana State Fair on 13 August (11) when strong winds brought down a stage moments before the duo was due to perform, killing seven concert-goers and injuring dozens of others.
They vowed to return to Indianapolis to make up for the cancellation, and thousands turned out for their emotional set at the Conseco Fieldhouse on Friday.
Singer Jennifer Nettles 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. 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."
The concert was free, but the band collected donations for the families affected by the horrific accident.
