Loud shrieks from horrified fans rang around the arena as the screen crashes on top of the dancers during local boyband Mirror's performance in Hong Kong on Thursday night (local time).

Two dancers were taken to hospital, including one who had suffered severe neck injuries and was in intensive care, the South China Morning Post reported.

The city's leader John Lee has ordered an investigation into the accident at the Hong Kong Coliseum which can house 12,500 people.

“I have never felt this terrible going to a concert. Walking out of the Coliseum felt like walking out of a funeral home. It was sombre, no one was talking," one witness told Variety.

Two female crowd members are reported to have suffered from shock.

The concert was immediately halted and did not continue. Ticketholders were ordered to leave the venue by management, who said ticketing refunds would be dealt with.

The Epoch Times reported fans could be heard shouting: "We won't forgive you."

Concerts have been cancelled at the venue until deemed safe by safety teams. Remaining Mirror gigs as part of their concert series running until next week have been cancelled, management said in a Facebook statement.

The 12-member boy band, famed for their Cantopop style, was formed as a result of a reality TV show in 2018.
