ASAP Rocky Will Perform This Weekend Before Final Assault Trial Verdict
Days before A$AP Rocky is set to learn his legal fate for his Sweden assault trial, he will hit the stage to perform for his fans.
On Monday afternoon (Aug. 5), organizers for the Real Street Festival announced that Rocky will be performing at the event, which will take place at Honda Center Grounds in Anaheim, Calif. on Sat., Aug. 11. Doc Wynter, who serves as the Executive Vice President of Urban/Hip Hop at iHeartMedia, is happy the Harlem rapper will rock the stage for what will be his last performance before the verdict for the assault trial is announced.
“We are elated that Rocky is finally coming home and will be taking the stage to headline our first Real Street Fest this weekend, as originally planned," Wynter says. "In the interim, Godspeed to Rocky and his family. We can’t wait to hear the crowd erupt for Rocky this Sunday night at The Honda Center Festival Grounds!”
This news surfaces after Rocky was freed from police custody on Friday (Aug. 2). He'd been in custody for the alleged assault on 19-year-old Mustafa Jafari on June 30. Rocky was arrested on suspicion of assault on July 2, and he'd been behind bars in a Swedish prison ever since.
