Harry Styles almost goes up in flames during concert

Harry Styles almost went up in flames during a One Direction concert.

The 'Little Things' hitmakers were performing in Chicago earlier this week on their US tour, and Zayn Malik had to stop his band mate from accidentally wandering into the pyrotechnics on stage.

The group had finished singing a cover of Wheatus' hit 'Teenage Dirtbag' when Harry, 19, was walking with a towel over his head.

A source told The Sun newspaper: "Zayn saw Harry heading into the flames and ran over to grab him away.

"If he hadn't seen Harry, within seconds his head would have been on fire."

The almost disastrous scenes follow another mishap for the teen heart throb, who recently had to run off stage to vomit during a show - again immediately after 'Teenage Dirtbag'.

A fan previously posted on YouTube: "I was there! He got dehydrated and overheated and ended up throwing up backstage. :( He missed Rock Me but came back right after and said, 'Sorry bout that! (sic)' "

The two events occurred as the band look forward to new single 'Best Song Ever' which was leaked this week ahead of its release on Monday.
