On August 13, 2011, high winds from an approaching storm collapsed the roof over the grandstand stage at the Indiana State Fair just before the band Sugarland was about to perform, killing seven people and injuring 58.
The collapse happened between acts, the opening act Sara Bareilles had completed her performance prior to the collapse and Sugarland’s members were in their tour bus getting ready to go on stage.
