Moment singer is almost set ablaze when stage prop at Brazilian concert misfires and sends giant fireball straight into his face

  • Brazilian singer Xand Avião burned his right arm while singing at a concert in São Paulo on Saturday night
  • The pop artist was in the middle of his set at the Viixe Forró and Piseiro festival when the stage prop machine let out two flames
  • One of the flames covered his arm for a few seconds before it went out
  • The 40-year-old was able to finish his performance and after the show flew to Brasilia to sing at another concert 

This is the bizarre moment a Brazilian pop singer’s arm got caught on fire during the middle of a concert.

Xand Avião was performing at the Arena das Dunas soccer stadium in Natal, Brazil as part of the Viixe Forró and Piseiro festival on Saturday night.

Mid-show, one of the smoke machines at the front of the stage appeared to catch alight and blasted a burst of flames just as Avião approached.

Footage of the moment captured the crowd’s gasps as the singer disappeared behind a wall of flames.

The 40-year-old quickly backed away from the accidental flame thrower and returned to his band. 

Thankfully, he was not harmed and was able to complete his set.

Brazilian pop singer Xand Avião was burned by a stage prop machine during a concert on Saturday night. The 40-year-old was singing in front of the stage when the machine let out two large flames, including one that briefly covered his right arm

Brazilian pop artist Xand Avião was not injured in the incident and was able to finish the show 

Avião later made light of the incident on Instagram.

‘When I’m off the stage, I work as a stunt double for Nicholas Cage in Ghost Rider …,’ the singer informed his 9.7 million followers on Tuesday. 

Avião quipped that film producers should contact his manager for any future gigs on the big screen. 

‘Jokes aside, thank God it was just a scare, it’s okay!’

According to outlet G1, Avião flew to Brasilia following the festival and performed at another concert. He wore an arm sleeve at point before ditching it. 

‘I lost the hair on my arms, I had a hair removal done by force,’ Avião said in an Instagram Stories video post. ‘My head is hot, but that’s because I’m really hot. My topknot is intact, everything is fine.’

He warned artists about the dangers of getting too close to the flame prop machine. 

“My singer friends, be careful with that thing over there. Some think it doesn’t burn, but it burns and burns hard.”
