This is due to a decision by Sweden's prison board, per USA Today, in which it was determined that "logistical and security issues" would prevent the once-possible performance. Vilhelm Grevik of Sweden's Prison and Probation Service told regional outlet Svenska Dagbladet Wednesday of the decision, stating that the board "won't be able to organize" a performance for inmates.
Last month, Rocky—whilst being bothered by a TMZ-y individual—said he would "love" to perform for inmates. However, even then, he expressed doubt that such an event could be pulled off at the site.
"I would love to but being that it's a maximum security lockdown detention center and you gotta stay in, like, a room for 23 hours a day, I doubt they'll let those people get a performance," Rocky said at the time.
On Dec. 11, Rocky will be in Stockholm for a performance at Ericsson Globe supporting the Swedish Network of Refugee Support Groups (FARR).
