Guitarist burns face after walking into fireworks display

This is the frightening moment a punk guitarist burned himself by accidentally walking into a stage-side fireworks display.

Michael Clifford – in a scene that could have been from spoof music documentary Spinal Tap – walked into the pyrotechnics feature while performing with his Australian band, Five Seconds of Summer, at Wembley Arena, London.

Clifford later posted a picture on his Instagram account showing his face bandaged on one side.

He told fans: “Hello world. I’m doing okay, thanks for worrying.”

Clifford’s accident comes after Foo Fighters lead singer Dave Grohl broke his leg falling from the stage during a concert in Gothenburg on Friday (June 12).

Hello world. im doing ok :) thanks for worrying!
