THE organisers of the America’s Cup World Series Portsmouth have decided to cancel this evening’s South Coast Proms.

Heavy rain is forecast to increase again around 8pm when the concert is due to commence. And is expected to remain heavy for the

remainder of the evening.

Ticketmaster will automatically issue refunds for tonight’s concert.

An official statement released by the events organisers says that all tickets will be refunded and will offer them free tickets to attend tomorrow’s concert.

It says: ‘The rain is due to lessen for the next couple of hours but is forecast to increase again around 8pm when the concert is due to start and then rain heavily for the remainder of the evening with a potential risk of thunderstorms. The organisers will refund all Friday evening ticket holders as well as offering them free tickets to to attend the Saturday evening Portsmouth Live concert. We apologise for any inconvenience to the general public planning to attend the concert tonight but we feel that, for public safety reasons and given that this is an open air uncovered site, this is the right decision to make.

Weather is forecast to improve as the weekend develops.
