Sugarland can thank their tour manager for saving their lives.
She (Hellen Rollens') decided to keep the group off the stage just minutes before it collapsed from 70 mph winds. The collapse killed four spectators instantly and one the next morning at a hospital.
Sugarland manager Gail Gellman told The Associated Press that others felt it was safe to go on, but the tour manager (Rollens) acted on her intuition.
Lead singer Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush are devastated. Bush went home to his two children in Georgia.
Their set was destroyed in the collapse. But they are planning to perform as scheduled in Albuquerque, N.M., Thursday.
Lady Antebellum's upcoming concert at the Indiana State Fair in Indianapolis has been canceled as state officials continue the investigation into Saturday's (Aug. 13) stage collapse.
Lady Antebellum and Brett Eldredge were scheduled to perform this Friday (Aug. 19).
The fair will not present any additional concerts at the outdoor grandstand area, where the accident occurred. Fair officials were considering the possibility of moving the concert series to other local venues, including the Conseco Fieldhouse, the Verizon Wireless Music Center and the lawn at White River State Park.
(The fair reopened Monday morning with a memorial service honoring those who were killed. During the ceremony, the victim's names were read as bouquets of flowers were carried across the stage. The service closed with the crowd singing "Amazing Grace.")
