20 year old Michael Clifford sustained burn injuries to his face this evening (14 June) after walking into a pyrotechnic display during a show in London.
The 5 Seconds of Summer member was performing the encore to their Wembley gig when he wandered too close to a stage-stunt and appeared to catch on fire. The show was ended early so Clifford could receive medical attention.
Fans caught footage of the event which looks pretty painful, to say the least.

In this shot there is smoke billowing off the young star.
Bandmate Ashton Irwin closed the show by saying, “Michael has hurt himself so we will not be continuing the show right now. He is ok.”

Michael tweeted this picture out a couple of hours after the gig which appears to confirm that his condition is far from critical and that he's got himself sorted out. The extent of the damage is unclear at this time but I wouldn't imagine all those bandages are decorative.
