The 26-year-old singer stopped in Toronto’s Scotiabank Arena on Wednesday to perform as part of her Future Nostalgia Tour, and the crowd was startled when pyrotechnics were let off within the enclosed space. English singer and songwriter, Dua Lipa, can sing in the mezzo-soprano range, and her distinctive disco-pop style has become well-known.

Dua Lipa, the singer rumored to play Zatanna, had to face real danger before any confirmations could be made for her superheroine role. Just as the famous singer was ending the concert with an unexpected bang, it became clear that the fireworks were not being handled by professionals. As the audience left the concert slightly ablaze,  MLSE (Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment) stated “Last night, at the end of a concert event at Scotiabank Arena, unauthorized and illegal fireworks were set off on the arena floor by a member of the audience. As a result, three attendees received minor aid on-site and were able to go home without a need for further medical attention,

The company continued its statement by thanking the proper authorities that acted on the incident instantaneously.

As one of the premier venues in North America, creating a safe and secure venue for every attendee at Scotiabank Arena is MLSE’s top priority and we immediately began working in cooperation with Toronto Police Services to fully investigate this reckless and dangerous act. As always, we thank Toronto Police Services, the on-site medical team, employees, and concert attendees for their swift support in responding to this incident.

Amongst the crowd, there were only three noticeable concertgoers that had minor injuries from the stunt. Due to this, ambulances were not necessary to be called in for more medic support.

It was at the end, during her final song, and confetti was already out, so we thought it was part of the finale,” an attendee told PEOPLE. “No one was fazed by it other than the people in the pit, [but it was] hella scary.
