Indiana State Fair Official Testifies About Sugarland

An official for the INDIANA STATE FAIR has testified that MERCURY/NASHVILLE duo SUGARLAND resisted delaying the concert last AUGUST when the stage collapsed.
INDIANA STATE FAIR COMMISSION Executive Director CINDY HOYT testified during a lawsuit against the company that built the stage rigging recently, saying that a representative from the concert promotion company asked SUGARLAND twice about delaying the show. The band had concerns about the delay affecting warm-up times and complicating travel to the next show.
SUGARLAND has not been penalized, though the band has been named in some lawsuits over the accident. The agency said the band didn’t employ the workers and wasn’t responsible for building the stage.
