DMX’s Church Benefit Concert in Arizona Canceled

By Allen Starbury  |  03/04/2010

Just days ago, it was reported DMX was scheduled to perform at a church fundraiser this upcoming weekend. But, the event has been canceled.

According to TMZ, Arizona's Independence High School -- who were to host the performance -- backed out, after they realized X was involved.

Morning Star Sanctified Church's Pastor King tells TMZ that they had everything set to go, even taking out a $1 million insurance policy, but the school just didn't want to move foward after finding out who the performer was.

Independence High School has already agreed to refund the church's $500 deposit, and now the church will have to refund money to fans who already purchased tickets.

However, King says they plan to reschedule the concert.

This time, it will take place at the Morning Star Church instead. However, it's much smaller.
