The group was playing the second of three huge gigs at Wembley Arena on Saturday night when a pyrotechnic malfunction engulfed the guitarist in flames.
Michael Clifford, one of the members of the teen-rock sensation 5 Seconds of Summer, has seemingly made a quick recovery from the nasty injury he looked to have sustained during a London gig on Saturday night.
5SOS were playing a huge concert at Wembley Arena in North London on Saturday (June 13th), when the guitarist stepped too close to a pyrotechnics device when it launched a vertical-flame into the air during an encore. Clifford was seen clutching his face and hair, which had been set alight according to horrified onlookers. The gig was halted and cancelled shortly afterwards.

But according to MailOnline, the 19 year old star was seen leaving the popular Mahiki nightclub in Mayfair at roughly 4am on Monday (June 15th), trying to disguise his injury from the waiting paparazzi outside by putting a jacket over his head. However, the pictures in the report do show a visible red mark near his eye.
Despite getting the injury only 30 hours or so beforehand and having the left side of his face bandaged up, Clifford would seem to be putting the accident behind him and getting on with his job of international pop star, returning to the stage on Sunday night to play the third of three London gigs to round off the Australian group’s UK and European tour.
And, just a few hours after stepping off stage, he was experiencing the capital’s night life with bandmates Calum Hood and Luke Hemmings.
He had previously taken to Twitter to assure his fans that his injuries would not be preventing him from fulfilling any of the band’s commitments. “What the f***k up. sorry I couldn't finish the encore, but at least I look like two face. thanks for worrying every1 x [sic],” he tweeted.
