    Didn't get to attend this concert. I know Sugarland brought healing and closure to those affected by the tragedy in August.

    I have a 2011 Sugarpass and I was wondering
    if I will be able to use it at the concert at
    Conseco in Indy? Please let me know as
    I was one of the victims that was hurt at the
    Indiana State Fair and I would love to meet
    Sugarland and thank them for everything
    they've done :)

    Like everyone else I'm so shocked that people would try to benefit from something that was supposed to help heal people..Words just can't even begin to describe how I feel about that..I so can't wait tho for Oct 28th 5 days And I will be there..Now for the special guest I'm hoping/thinking it might be Lady A..They were supposed to perform the week after and cancelled so wouldn't that be something(: But I guess we will find out soon enough!!!

    Well put Susan... Those who are profiting off the sale of the tickets are taking away from what this concert is really about. We need to stay strong in our desire to keep this event a remembrance of those we lost and to support of those who are recuperating from their injuries. True Sugarfans will!!!!

    I first just want to say THANKS again to J&K for returning to Indy and I know this is going to be a very fun and touching concert all in one...yes many tissues will be in hand ready for the emotional moments and I am sure there will be many of those! I am so excited for the concert though and am very happy they are doing this for us. Those of us at the ISF concert will forever remember a night that will forever change our life! I also have pictures to keep from that night (and tickets) to keep as a forever reminder as well of a night that to this day part of me still can't believe it really happened, seems so umbelieveable!! I do think of it every time I hear your music (great music) but that won't stop me from listening!!!!
    I do have to say that those people that are selling tickets on ebay and ect. would be a great thing for you to give some of your profits to the benefit of those that were hurt or families of those that were killed but I have a feeling you haven't even considered this! Hope this makes you think of the idea! Though I don't agree with that happening at all...especially since I have friends that can't go because they couldn't get tickets due to those getting so many and making a profit on them...that really really bothers me! SO ...PLEASE at least donate a portion of your profits to the REASON THEY ARE COMING BACK AND DOING THIS CONCERT IN THE FIRST PLACE!!!! I do know that Sugarland is NOT the reason the ticket disaster is the way it was handled by ticketmaster in the first place, please keep that in mind as well!
    Looking forward to a great show and am happy we were able to get the two tickets we had at ISF replaced with two as well. Curious about the special guest as well....regardless...CAN'T WAIT AND SUGARLAND ....THANK YOU!!!!!!

    I bought my tickets on this site originally and had no problem getting Sugarpit passes again. I think they should have offered tickets only to those that were at the original concert. Seems like the majority of people on here complaining weren't even at the first concert.

    I would love to see Kenny Chesney and Keith Urban and Matt Nathanson and LBT and Sarah B. and Jake Owens and all the other American Idols who have toured with Sugarland these past few years. My focus is to get video out of whatever they open with, whenever they sing 'Love' and 'Stand Up', and however they close. going to be quite a night....

    I think that it's time to start talking about who the special guests are going to be. I would love to see Kenny pop in for a special song or two. After all he does love Indy! Or how about Blake? He is free that night. This Show IS GOING TO BE HUGE! I do feel for those who have had issues but I feel that it is time to change the subject.
