The show was at Conesco Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Nettles also told the those in attendance that they were in store for an emotional night that would also be part celebration. “Obviously we are here in October – we were supposed to do this show in August. Obviously, the stage is different, you are different and we are different. We are all changed by what happened then.” “But we are going to try to give you the best show that we can and to celebrate healing with you and to celebrate life and music with you here tonight.” Sugarland’s free concert came 10 weeks after the stage collapsed as a storm neared the fairgrounds’ Grandstand a few miles north of Friday night’s venue. Attendees were asked to donate to a victim relief fund that already has raised nearly $1 million.
