A concert billed as an “All Lives Matter” concert starring Gucci Mane and Friends scheduled to hit the Mississippi Coast Coliseum on Sept. 24 has been canceled.

Ticketmaster.com has the concert listed as “canceled” and refunds will be given for tickets already purchased. It was not made known why the show was canceled.

The show is still listed on the website for the Coliseum.

A poster for the “Stop the Violence” concert claims a portion of the proceeds from the show would have been given to the families of Philando Castille of Minnesota and Alton Sterling of Baton Rouge. Castile and Sterling were both shot and killed by law enforcement officers within days of each other in July. The shooting deaths set off a series of protests as well as the slayings of police officers in Dallas and Baton Rouge.

The Atlanta rapper was released from prison in May after he pleaded guilty to felon possessing a weapon. He dropped his new album “Everybody Looking” on July 22. The album has received mostly favorable reviews.
