The incident happened when Michael wandered into the pathway of a stage pyrotechnic.
Video shows how his hair went up in smoke before he rushed off to the side of the stage to try and put the fire out.
Fellow member Ashton Irwin then returned to the stage to announce that they would not be performing the rest of their encore.
"Michael has hurt himself so we will not be continuing the show right now. He is okay," he told the crowd.

Luckily, Michael managed to escape serious injury, and later posted a photo of his face in bandages on Twitter, assuring fans he was ok.
As #GETWELLSOONMICHAEL began trending worldwide on Twitter, he wrote: "What the f***s up. sorry I couldnt finish the encore, but at least I look like two face. thanks for worrying every1 x (sic)."
He later posted: "Hello world. im doing ok :) thanks for worrying!" adding: "If I obviously don't want to have my picture taken right now please don't take my picture :) see everyone tomorrow!!"
