MERCURY NASHVILLE duo SUGARLAND members KRISTIAN BUSH and JENNIFER will give a deposition on APRIL 12th and 13th in CHARLESTON about the deadly INDIANA STATE FAIR stage collapse.
The questioning will center around INDIANA STATE FAIR Exec. Dir. CINDY HOYE’s testimony where she claimed she asked the band to delay twice and they refused because they were trying to get to IOWA to play the state fair there.
MID-AMERICA SOUND has also responded to the stage collapse lawsuit, saying they "leased stage equipment to the STATE FAIR COMMISSION ... but denies all remaining allegations." The claim says the equipment was "modified or altered" and "unforseeeably misused” and they point to their contract with the STATE FAIR saying the, "purchaser assumes all risks inherent in the operation and use of the equipment.”
