The band was in the middle of performing “She Looks So Perfect” when the terrifying accident happened. Michael walked up next to a pyrotechnics display spewing out fire, and then he caught on fire! He ran off stage suddenly to grab a towel and calm the smoke coming from his head.
He went back stage to receive immediate treatment. Soon after, bandmate Ashton Irwin, 20, took to the stage to reveal that the concert was being cut short. Despite the scary situation, Michael is being a fighter and not letting a little fire stand in the way of making his fans happy. What a guy!
