Sugarland Will Hold Memorial For Lives Lost During Stage Collapse

Sugarland Memorial

We can't imagine what it's like for those close to this tragedy.

Sugarland, who was set to perform on the stage that horrifyingly collapsed, killing 5 and injuring about 40 while they waited for the band, has now spoken about the incident and what they'd like to do for those who lost their lives.

"We are in the process of planning a private memorial in Indiana, to honor those fans who died," the band said in a statement Tuesday. "We would first like to hold space so that their families can have time to go through their own services and memorials."

"Until that time we are holding vigil for them," the statement continues. "We join them on their mourning benches."

The band has to be shaken up as well, having been so close to performing on that stage that night.

"We have taken a couple of days to try and even begin to emotionally process the magnitude and gravity of the tragedy in Indiana on Saturday," the statement reads, adding, "We are also addressing our own specific healing."

It's incredibly thoughtful of the band to move to do something like this, and we hope that the services in the next few weeks can begin the healing process. Though, we're sure it will be quite some time before anyone can fully recover.

Our hearts continue to go out.
