(Indianapolis, Ind.) – The days of outdoor concerts at the Indiana State Fair are soon to be over. 

 

After last year’s fatal stage collapse before the Sugarland show, the State Fair Commission says it will move all shows inside Pepsi Coliseum starting in 2014. 

 

The final report on what caused the rigging of the stage to be blown over by strong winds in August is due to be released in about two months.  The accident killed seven people.
