Los Angeles - Country duo Sugarland is being sued by more than 40 people over an incident in August in which the stage collapsed at one of their concerts, killing seven people and injuring more than 45, website TMZ.com reported Wednesday.
Among those suing were the estates of some of the dead victims, who claimed that Sugarland should have cancelled the show because they knew the weather was worsening.
The deadly incident took place on August 13 in Indiana when heavy winds caused the collapse of the stage and lighting infrastructure moments before the band were due to perform.
Also named in the lawsuit were concert promoter Live Nation, ESG Security and the stagehands' union.
