DMX has been forced to cancel his upcoming concert in Sheffield, UK. Although promoters planned to check concert goers for drugs, guns, and knives, Sheffield Council's and police grew concerned after checking X's past, which includes 13 charges of animal cruelty, public order and drug offenses. Furthermore, X's manager was shot in a 1999 incident and X was arrested earlier this year for swearing at his St Kitts and Nevis concerts in the Caribbean. The show was officially axed when City Hall Staffers and the promoters weren't able to see eye to eye on hiring extra security, which could have kept the show going.
"Management at the City Hall made the joint decision along with the promoters that this concert should not go ahead," Jo Barnes, general manager of Sheffield City Hall told The Star. "Initial discussions with the promoters of this concert and South Yorkshire Police led us to feel that it would be prudent to put on extra security for this one evening. As this was not set in place, we felt that as a public venue the safety of our visitors must come first and that without the added safety of extra security the show must be cancelled."
