Sugarland, Sara Bareilles Tweet Their Condolences After Indiana State Fair Stage Collapse

Five people are dead and dozens were injured after a stage collapsed at the Indiana State Fair just before the country band Sugarland was to perform on Saturday night. Inclement weather, namely high winds, are believed to be the cause of the collapse.

Now, Sugarland is speaking out about the tragic incident.

Shortly after the stage collapse, the band took to their Twitter account to update their fans.

“We are all right,” Sugarland tweeted. “We are praying for our fans, and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you’ll join us. They need your strength.” (BUT fails to say anything about the people who lost their life’s! HER FANS! You need to say those who were injured and killed)

Sara Bareilles, the concert’s opening act, performed before the severe weather caused the stage to collapse.

“I’m speechless and feel so helpless,” Bareilles tweeted that night. “Please send love and prayers to Indianapolis tonight. My heart aches for the lives lost.” (this is what you say SUGARLOSER)

Today, Bareilles apologized to fans in Iowa after canceling their show, writing, “Our apologies and gratitude to the people of Iowa for understanding our absence tonight from the scheduled show. We’ll hope to see you soon.”

My heart does go out to friend’s and family’s that have lost someone close to them. As well those who got hurt we will be praying here at TylerOMG!
