Sometimes being a musician is a dangerous job, as 5 Seconds of Summer guitarist Michael Clifford found out Saturday night when Michael was burned on the head and face by pyrotechnics during a show a London’s Wembley Arena.
The scary accident was caught on video from the audience and posted to Twitter, but Michael was feeling well enough later to joke about it. Tweeting an image of himself giving a thumbs-up, his head and half his face wrapped in bandages, Michael joked, “sorry I couldn’t finish the encore, but at least I look like two face,” referring to the famed Batman villain. And by Sunday he had tweeted, “Feeling loads better and my face is fine…excited for the show tonight.”
5SOS’s record label Capitol confirmed that Michael was cleared to hit the stage Sunday for the band’s final of three London shows, at the SSE Area, but noted, “There will be no pyrotechnic production for the show this evening.”
