Four Dead After Stage collapses at Indiana State Fair At Sugarland

Strong winds  caused the collapse of  a podium at the Indiana State Fair on Sunday just before the country duo Sugarland was set to take the stage for their headline performance, killing  four and wounding 40, according to reports.
The band tweeted their regret at their official Twitter account shortly after the news broke. "We are all well. We pray for our fans and the people of Indianapolis. We hope you to join us. They need your strength," they wrote.
Sara Bareilles, currently on tour with Sugarland, had just finished her set at the Hoosier Lottery Grandstand stage before the collapse and also responded to Twitter. "I am speechless and feel so helpless. Send love and prayers to Indianapolis tonight. My heart aches for the lives lost," she wrote.
Janet Jackson is set to perform at the 17-day fair on August 17, Train and Maroon 5 are scheduled for August 18 and August 19 for Lady Antebellum. The stock market has not said whether the concert will continue as planned.
