    Looks like Big E fair visitors will miss out on a performance by DJ Diesel.

    Shaquille O'Neal has canceled his performance at the Big E in Massachusetts, which will be celebrating its 100-year milestone. 

    The former basketball player and current DJ will be in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, to perform at a benefit for flood victims, a Big E spokeswoman said. 

    The Big E kicks off in West Springfield this Friday. The event is known as the largest fair in New England and fifth largest in the country. 

    The fair will provide dozen of food stands and performances for visitors to enjoy.
