No, Michael didn’t quit the band.

But he was absent from Five Seconds of Summer’s Jingle Bell Ball performance in London after he lost his passport.

The 5SOS boys performed as a trio for the first time after Calum, Ashton and Luke made their way to the UK sans their colourful haired guitarist.

“You might notice we look a bit different! We’re missing a red-headed skinny fellow!” the boys prefaced their performance with.

“Wasn’t the same without Michael but we did our best, thanks jingle bell ball,” Luke tweeted after the performance.

Apparently Michael will also miss the boys’ performance at the Radio City Christmas Live 2014 show in Liverpool, England this week.
