The memorial service for American rapper/actor Earl Simmons best known as DMX is set to come off on April 24th Brooklyn’s Barclays Center according to his manager.
The rapper who was 50-year-old died last week Friday, April 9th, 2021, at White Plains Hospital, after suffering an alleged overdose that led to a heart attack on April 2 as we reported earlier.
Details on how many people will be able to attend the ceremony and ticketing are still being determined, according to manager Steve Rifkind. A day after the public event, DMX’s family and friends will attend a private funeral service at a church in the NYC area.
Capacity at the arena, which is home to the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets and New York Liberty of the WNBA, will be limited by pandemic restrictions.
Information gathered so far regarding the arrangements has it that a decision has been made to close the event to the public, and limit it to close friends and family.
Barclays Center which can hold a total of 19,000 people at a go will only be able to host 1900 people this time around which is about 10 percent of its capacity due to the outbreak of CoronaVirus (Covid-19) pandemic and the restrictions.
DMX’s memorial services will also according to reports be live-streamed. One of the last big DMX shows happened at the Barclays Center in June 2019.
