Sugarland will return to Indiana this month for the first time since a deadly stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair in August.

The band will perform a free concert on October 28 in downtown Indianapolis. The group was about to take the stage for an August 13 concert when a strong gust of wind blew over the stage rigging. Five fans, a security guard and a stagehand died from their injuries and more than 40 other people were hurt, some seriously.

All tickets from their cancelled August 13 date will be honored.

Contributions will benefit the Indiana State Fair Remembrance Fund, which was created for the collapse victims.
