INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Members of the country duo Sugarland will give video depositions from Virginia next week in lawsuits over the Indiana State Fair stage collapse that killed seven people and injured dozens of others.

WTHR-TV reports Sugarland members Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush will give the depositions April 12th and 13th.

The testimony will focus on whether Sugarland resisted delaying the start of their Aug. 13 concert despite threatening weather. The stage and rigging collapsed onto fans amid high winds ahead of a thunderstorm.

A judge ordered the depositions last month in lawsuits against Mid-America Sound Corp., the company that owns the stage and rigging that collapsed.

Mid-America denies it did anything to warrant the stage collapse.
