5 Seconds of Summer Cancels Concert After Drummer Ashton Irwin’s ‘Extreme Heat Exhaustion’

A scary moment during the 5 Seconds of Summer concert on Sunday night not only prompted the band to end their performance mid-show, but also postponed an upcoming appearance. During his show in Houston, Texas, drummer Ashton Irwin suffered a health scare, which was later identified as heat exhaustion.

The band took to social media to share an update with fans after the incident. “Last night’s show ended early due to a medical incident during the show. Upon experiencing physical symptoms, Ashton was taken to a local hospital for testing and medical review,” he wrote in an Instagram Story on Monday.

“As a result, it was advised that Ashton had experienced extreme heat exhaustion,” the statement continued. “Thankfully and most importantly, he is feeling fine and is recovering very well. We apologize to all the fans present for cutting the show.”

The band shared that ticketholders would be updated via email “as soon as” they “have more information”.

In a second story, the band stated that “after medical advice” they had canceled their Tuesday show in Arkansas, rescheduled it for July 26. “We’re sorry to inconvenience your plans, but we promise for those of you who may still make it, we’ll perform for your life,” he wrote.

“In the meantime, please join us in giving Ash the privacy to rest and get back to full fitness,” the band concluded, signing the statement, “lots of love, 5SOS.”

It should come as no surprise that the group will do whatever is necessary to ensure the health and safety of their bandmates. 5SOS has been going strong for over 10 years. In December, they celebrated a decade together by releasing a new song, “2011”, dedicated to the year the group was formed.

“We wrote ‘2011’ to celebrate 10 years of this band, 10 years of life’s adventures, and above all, 10 years of you, our fans,” read the message. “We love you, and we can’t wait for the next 10.”

While they have been making music together for over a decade, the Australian boy band changed their sound a bit in 2018. ET caught up with Luke Hemmings, Michael Clifford, Callum Hood, and Irwin when they explained, “We wanted to set a tone for a new direction… a completely clean slate and resume. He needed to take that risk to move forward.”
