Sugarland plans Ind. event, resumes tour Thursday

Sugarland says it's in the process of planning a private memorial in Indiana to honor fans who died during a collapse of a stage and rigging at the Indiana State Fair.

The country duo posted a letter on its website www.sugarlandmusic.com Tuesday saying the event will be held after families hold their own services and memorials for the five people who died from Saturday's collapse. Sugarland says until then it will be keeping vigil for the victims and their families.

Saturday's victims included a stagehand and a security officer.

Sugarland says in the letter it will resume its touring schedule Thursday in Albuquerque.

The duo's publicist, Kelly Russell, says she has no more information on the memorial other than what's contained in the letter.
