RevPro Event Cancelled After Serious Incident Near Venue

RevPro's show on Sunday was cancelled

While RevPro did not directly address the reason for the cancellation, Hampshire Live has reported that an 18-year-old man was found dead in Portsmouth's Guildhall Square at 11 pm BST on Saturday, July 29, just metres from where RevPro were set to hold their show on Sunday.

A 15-year-old boy, a 16-year-old boy, and a 17-year-old boy were arrested on suspicion of murder. They have since been released without charges.
