Wow that sucks. My thoughts go out to everyone involved.

That being said, I'm voting for this particular hand basket to hell.

Horrible.

Thoroughly inappropriate headline, subby.

Welcome to the Great White club, Sugarland.

Holy crap!

Numerous reports confirm that going to a Sugerland concert really blows.
 
2011-08-14 12:15:35 AM
Very sad indeed. The headline made me feel a little better though.

It is a miracle only 4 were killed. That is really scary video.
 
2011-08-14 12:16:28 AM
Great. Now Sugarland's probably going to do a tribute album.
 
2011-08-14 12:16:34 AM
Now that's what I call a sticky situation.

Assuming the guy was taking the video so that he could watch it later on, would it have killed him to focus it?

Worst video ever.
 
2011-08-14 12:17:59 AM
WTF is a Sugarland?
 
2011-08-14 12:18:28 AM
They must be a horrible way to die. I can only a few things worse than a Sugerland concert.

Then again Indiana. It must be a nice break from cowfarking.
 
2011-08-14 12:18:36 AM
Why the hell is Sara Bareilles opening for Sugarland? She is a much bigger star and her live concerts are awesome.
 
2011-08-14 12:18:53 AM
geez! what's up with stages these days? cheap trick? sugarland?

anyway, this was tragic, and i feel for all those involved

plus, try as i might, i just can't not like sugarland

Dog died.
Pickup truck broke down.
Wife left me.
Stage rigging killed all my fans.
 
2011-08-14 12:19:37 AM
Now do you see what happens when you try to rock people like a hurricane and your band isn't the Scorpions?

Duke Phillips' Singing Bears: WTF is a Sugarland?


I dunno but it sounds unhealthy on many levels.
 
2011-08-14 12:20:29 AM
Homeland Security - Level 1 Emergency? I dont understand what Homeland Security has to do with this if it was wind related. Not to take away from the tragic event, but why would like be a Homeland Security issue?...and why would it be the highest level? Was the collapse based upon a terrorist action?

...I am seriously asking this question - the article says it was wind, but was it a bomb?
 
2011-08-14 12:20:43 AM
Oh dear. This is a country music concert.

Is anyone blaming Obama yet?

Did someone rub Vaseline all over the lens before filming that?

What do you get when you play a country music song backwards?
 
2011-08-14 12:21:18 AM
You know I'm starting to think that these outdoor stages need to be reassessed two in Canada the last two years and now this one? Time to beef up the designs.

Also sugarland isn't THAT bad...

"where were you when the stage rigging collapsed at the Sugarland concert in Indianapolis..."
 
2011-08-14 12:22:38 AM
And the fans probably thought they were safe after Kristen Hall left the band

No. Even with the grainy video, there is absolutely no explosion of any sort. The thing just collapsed, and camera guy caught it.

I have no idea who Sugarland is but i came here to say that you can't trust carnies.

Here is a live video link from a local news station. They are waiting for a news conference.

So i'm watching CNN's video and they are talking to Sugarland's manager or something...asking how they are dealing with it.

the loving story of a women who revived her abusive husband and then married him?
 
2011-08-14 12:26:44 AM
I didn't know Great White came back as Sugarland.

//I think I saw someone on the grassy knoll in the video.
 
2011-08-14 12:27:19 AM
Wow, that was pretty frightening. Hope not too many people were injured.
 
2011-08-14 12:28:02 AM
Sugarland is cursed. They were scheduled to play in Tuscaloosa, AL on April 15 when a small tornado came though the town, cancelling the show. Two weeks later on April 27 the big tornado came though which killed dozens. Now this happened.

The one that happened in Camrose, Alberta (new window) Kevin Costner was about to take the stage:

''During last year's jamboree, actor and musician Kevin Costner had been preparing to perform when the storm slammed the concert grounds and the stage collapsed.

Costner was a headline performer at the four-day concert along with country stars Tim McGraw and Josh Turner.

Costner's road manager Mark Botting was among the 75 people who were injured when the stage toppled.

Costner himself became trapped under netting and said after the fact he knew immediately that "something felt terribly, terribly wrong.
"

/1 died, 75 injured.

AbbeySomeone: I have no idea who Sugarland is


Neither did I. As far as I knew, Sugarland is a city southwest of Houston and I wonded how/why the entire city moved out of state to have a concert.

Living in Indy this is kinda dominating the news and really sad, but I must say, subby you magnificent bastard.
