Tickets go on sale online on November 12, and the rapper has decided to donate a portion of the proceeds from the concert to a local charity in Sweden, known as FARR — the Swedish Network of Refugee Support Groups. It is a grassroots volunteer organisation that works with asylum seekers, stateless people and refugees, defending their human rights through advocacy, legal advice, education and policy intervention, variety.com adds.

A$AP Rocky was given a suspended sentence after being convicted of assault, and he also paid a fine. Subsequently, he served around three weeks at a Swedish detention centre. A couple of members of his entourage were also convicted of assault by the court.

“The assault has not been of such a serious nature that a prison sentence must be chosen,” the court said in a statement, adding: “The defendants are therefore sentenced to conditional sentences.”
