Sugarland returns to Indiana to end tour

Friday, October 7, 2011 – Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of country duo Sugarland will return to Indiana for a free concert at Conseco Fieldhouse on Pct. 28, their first since the storm this summer that killed seven people after toppling the staging.

This full-band show will also serve as the final stop of Sugarland's 2011 Incredible Machine Tour. Special guests will be announced at a later date.

It is Sugarland's intention to honor all previous ticketholders for the Aug. 13 Indiana State Fair date at this newly-added show, regardless of refund status. Ticket distribution will start with a first-come, first-serve "presale" for previous ticketholders before the release of seats to the general public. The "presale" will begin Oct. 10th at 10 a.m. eastern and end Oct. 14 at midnight eastern.

Fans who bought State Fair show tickets online or via telephone through Ticketmaster or the Indiana State Fair (ISF) will receive unique passwords via email or phone to redeem the same number of tickets they originally purchased. Fans who participated in the Sugarpass fan club presale will receive an email with ticket redemption instructions for use on Sugarlandmusic.com. Original Sugarpit ticketholders will have first priority to choose Sugarpit for this show as well.

Previous ticketholders who do not receive an email or who purchased their tickets in person at the ISF box office or other outlet should contact Ticketmaster at 800-745-3000 beginning Oct. 10th at 10 a.m. eastern to request seats. Proof of original purchase in the form of a receipt is recommended.

Remaining seats for the Conseco Fieldhouse show will be released to the general public Saturday, Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. eastern on a first-come, first-serve basis. Tickets will be available free of cost and service fees via Ticketmaster.com for as long as supplies last. Ticket limit is four per household.

Contributions to the Indiana State Fair Remembrance Fund will be accepted throughout the night

CD reviews for Sugarland

The Incredible Machine CD review - The Incredible Machine
"The Incredible Machine" is a rather unfortunate title for Sugarland's latest full-length. Listening to Find The Beat Again, for example, makes it sound as though vocalist Jennifer Nettles wants to be Deborah Harry-fronting-Katrina & the Waves rather than, say, a latter-day Loretta Lynn. With its handclap rhythm and shouted "Hey, Hey" on the chorus, this track - along with many others - finds Sugarland firmly entrenched in a predictable pop music device. »»»
Gold and Green CD review - Gold and Green
Jennifer Nettles has one of the most distinctive voices in today's country music, which makes every thing she sings oh so easy on the ears. And with this 10-song holiday CD, Nettles never fails to please, vocally. So when one of these recordings is little more than Nettles singing, and sparse banjos backing (along with Kristian Bush's complimentary vocal), as happens with O Come, O Come, Emmanuel, it's a thing of simple musical beauty. Bush also takes a few lead vocals, but Nettles »»»
Live on the Inside CD review - Live on the Inside
Often it isn't the material chosen or the sound quality that makes a live album good or poor, but the act being captured. To that end Sugarland isn't a good band at all to capture on an audio CD. The group's live shows are renowned, and anyone who has been to one and wants a reminder of that experience will love CD/DVD. Yet those who just want to hear good music performed by Sugarland will be disappointed. On nearly every song, Jennifer Nettles asks for audience participation and readily gets it. »»»
Editorial: Walking the talk – When names like Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon and the Hag are invoked, you're talking hard core country. These are the touchstones of country , the guys who made country music what it was and still is (or maybe can be). When these folks would sing about being down-and-out and the rough-and-tumble, they knew of what they were singing about. Fast forward a few years to the country singers of today. »»»
Concert Review: Lambert refuses to rest on laurels – Watching this stop on Miranda Lambert's "Livin' Like Hippies Tour," one is struck by just how many great songs the country singer/songwriter already has in her repertoire. With most artists, it's relatively easy to guess which song a performer will choose to close a show. But Lambert has so many winners to pick from, many... »»»
Concert Review: DBT rocks on – Drive-By Truckers still sometimes get miscategorized as alt.-country, but who's kidding whom? With three electric guitarists upfront exchanging hard rock licks all night, this is a blistering Southern rock band. Hitting the stage just before 10, the band played a satisfying 2-hour-plus set. At 11:40, Patterson Hood announced the band would be... »»»

East Nashville may be known as "the" Americana hotbed these days, but some of the talent there is very much verging on rock 'n roll. This is the case with Lynn Taylor & the BarFlies on their third release, a collection of personal tunes by the front man. »»»

Mary Gauthier has built her career on honest, sometimes brutally and achingly self-confessional songs. This is the first time that she has focused on experiences other than her own, and it could become not only the strongest album of her career but, in its own way, a landmark album. »»»
Work CD review - Work
Matt Hectorne's new album - his third solo effort - offers another example of the rewards that can come through the joy of discovery. While Hectorne makes no attempt to bend the boundaries as far as a patented Americana sound is concerned, the success he achieves here is the result of him doing quite the opposite, that is, sounding like a revered veteran who mastered the form quite quickly in his career.  »»»
Hallelujah Nights CD review - Hallelujah Nights
LANCO's "Greatest Love Story" is a radio single saturated in undeniable warmth and sweetness. But then, the attitude in "We Do" reeks of Florida Georgia Line and the chorus to "Singin' at The Stars" also brings country music's most annoying duo to mind. LANCO is a new act, and the jury's still on just which direction this five-piece will go. »»»
