5 Seconds of Summer’s upcoming tour of Australia and New Zealand should go ahead without a hitch despite the group’s guitarist, Michael Clifford, suffering facial burns on the weekend in a pyrotechnics mishap.

The Sydney-formed four-piece completed their final show at SSE Arena (Wembley) on Sunday night, with an injured Clifford taking his familiar spot at the front of stage. His good health augurs well for the band’s homecoming stretch, which is due to start June 18 at Auckland’s Vector Arena, then rolls into arenas in each of the big five Australian cities.

The sold-out Rock Out With Your Socks Out tour is due to wrap-up June 29 at Perth Arena. A spokesperson for Live Nation Australasia, the promoter of the tour Down Under, tells Billboard “there’s no reason to expect New Zealand and Australia dates will be affected.”

Clifford appeared to step into a flame during the latter stages of the band's Saturday night show in London. His hair and head dramatically caught fire in an incident that hit the news bulletins in the band’s homeland.

Clifford didn’t return to the stage that night, but he was back on deck the following evening for what was their final show of their tour of the U.K and Europe. He’s kept his millions of loyal fans informed of his situation with a string of tweets.
