UPDATE 1005: A local news report has confirmed that a man - believed to be in his late teens - suffered serious head injuries and was taken to Southampton General Hospital for treatment.
The band pulled the show after 30 minutes at Portsmouth Guildhall last night.
A Day To Remember kicked off their All Signs Point To Britain tour in Portsmouth last night, but had to pull the show mid-set after an audience member plunged from the first tier balcony. According to sources on Twitter, the band made it through about 30 minutes of their set before the incident happened, then announced the remainder of the show would be cancelled.

Feel sorry for adtr cutting their set short tonight. Really hope the guy who jumped/fell in Portsmouth is okay though.— Rhian Westbury (@rswstbry) November 12, 2014
Eyewitness accounts conflict as to whether the injured audience member fell accidentally or intentionally jumped from the balcony.
psa about the adtr portsmouth gig: -the guy didn't die but he looked pretty badly injured -he voluntarily jumped, didn't fall or get pushed— josie (@josiemustdie) November 13, 2014
