In a statement from ASAP Rocky's management, it has been confirmed that his European tour dates and festival appearances throughout July have been canceled following his arrest in Sweden

"ASAP Rocky is being detained in a Swedish jail for an unknown period of time for acting in self-defense during an altercation that took place," his management told Sónar, a festival that takes place in Barcelona, Spain. "Due to this unfortunate situation he is forced to cancel his European festival and tour dates in July." So far Rocky has been forced to miss shows at Kadetten Festival in Norway, Open'er Festival in Poland, Longitude in Dublin, Wireless in London, and a tour date in Moscow, Russia.

He was also scheduled to make appearances at Spalsh! Festival in Germany, Dour Festival in Belgium, Atlas Weekend in Ukraine, Sónar Festival in Barcelona, Melt! Festival in Germany, and Tomorrowland Festival in Belgium later this month. As of right now, his August tour dates are still set to happen.

The situation with Rocky's arrest in Sweden was prompted after footage of him and his crew involved in a street brawl surfaced online. Rocky later chimed in to say that the two men involved in the fight followed him and his friends throughout Stockholm, and he only did what he did out of self-defense. He also uploaded videos of the two men harassing him, accusing the ASAP Mob rapper of breaking one of their headphones. Rocky accused the two men of sexually assaulting women.

Further updates on his current situation have painted a grim picture, as TMZ reported that he was sleeping atop a yoga mat without any blankets. The prison he's currently detained in has been described as "disease-ridden," although a Swedish prison official has refuted those reports.
