The show will go on.

Sugarland announced this morning that they will return to Indianapolis at month's end to make good on their promise of performing a free concert for the victims of their deadly stage crash earlier this summer.

"We will return to Indiana for a free concert at Conseco Fieldhouse on Oct. 28," bandmates Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush tweeted together this morning. "#LOVE."

The last time they were in the state was on Aug. 13, when freak winds blew over the stage rigging just before the band was meant to go onstage at the Indiana State Fair, and crashed into the audience, causing the death of seven people--five fans, a security guard and a stagehand--and injuring 40 more.

During the show, which will mark the final date of their 2011 Incredible Machine Tour, the band will be accepting donations to the Indiana State Fair Remembrance Fund, which is benefiting the families affected by the accident, which so far has raised $900,000.

Anyone who had a ticket to the previous show, even if they have since received a refund, will be given priority access to the new date.
