5 Seconds of Summer ditched their pyrotechnic show but guitarist Michael Clifford was feeling "much better" at last night's (14.06.15) gig at London's Wembley Arena, a day after his face was burned during a performance at the same venue
5 Seconds of Summer's Michael Clifford is feeling "much better" since being burned on stage.
The 19-year-old guitarist was left injured after being hit in the face by pyrotechnics, which set his hair on fire, towards the end of the group's show at London's SSE Wembley Arena on Saturday (13.06.15), prompting them to cut the performance short so he could receive treatment, but the musician had recovered enough to return to the stage at the venue last night (14.06.15).
He tweeted ahead of last night's gig: ""Feeling loads better and my face is fine :) excited for the show tonight m/ (sic)"
Michael went on to thank fans for their well-wishes following his accident.
He added: "There's been a lot of love spread around lately, thank you all so much :) All of us boys appreciate everything you do! And also thank you so much to all my friends for wishing me the best.(sic)"
As a result of the incident, the group's third and final night at the venue was a more scaled back production.
Their management said ahead of the show: "Michael and the band would like to thank all the fans, well wishers and particularly last night's audience for their support.
"There will be no pyrotechnic production for the show this evening."
However, the 'She Looks So Perfect' hitmakers still enjoyed the gig.
Michael tweeted afterwards: "Thank you for tonight Wembley!! you were amazing :)
"Last night of the UK/EU tour finished :) thank you so damn much for all of the crew involved and all of the people who came.. love to all!!! (sic)"
