A$AP Rocky forced to cancel Tomorrowland performance due to incarceration
The stop in Boom is one cancellation among many since Rocky, real name Rakim Meyers, reportedly turned himself in and was remanded to a Stockholm jail in the early morning of July 3. Rocky was also scheduled to perform in Germany, Norway, Italy, Ukraine, Poland, Ireland, UK, and Spain throughout his current tour. Now, all of the aforementioned performances are cancelled as well.
News of Rocky’s arrest swept across headlines after a fight took place in the streets of Stockholm involving him and his entourage. In a three-minute video Rocky posted to IGTV, it appears the two unidentified men—whom Meyers and his entourage did not know prior to the encounter—had physically provoked Rocky and his staff with a pair of headphones, subsequently following them along their path after warnings to leave.
TMZ then posted their own video which shows the brawl escalate. The altercation purportedly turned violent upon Rocky’s learning from a female pedestrian that the two men who were following them had groped her earlier that day.
