6 Bands Who Were Forced to Perform Without a Member Due to Illness
Bandmates’ on-stage chemistry is one of the main reasons why groups like One Direction and Fifth Harmony are so successful; they just mesh, you know? So if one person is unable to make a performance for whatever reason, something ends up being off. But you know what they say — the show must go on!
Even though 5 Seconds of Summer cancelled a few of their shows when Ashton Irwin came down with appendicitis (which is understandable — you can’t really play a concert without your drummer), many other of your fave groups have persevered on when one of the members becomes sick or gets injured. And even though it’s super weird to see a quartet perform as a trio, or a five-piece suddenly become four, ish happens and carrying on NMW is why these people get paid the big bucks.
The Fifth Harmony girls' close bond and unique ~harmonies~ make their live performances so epic. So when Camila Cabello got sick while they were on tour with Austin Mahone, the rest of the group freaked the eff out.
"PHILLY MEET N GREET. im currently in the hospital cause we wanna make sure it's nothing serious and i feel terrible :( please forgive me," she wrote on Twitter. Unfortunately, Cam wasn't able to make the show and Ally, Dinah, Lauren and Normani had to perform without the brunette. Luckily, the 19 year old was discharged that evening, thanked all of the fans for sending her love and support, and was ready to rock at the next 5H show.
