Speaking to the Sunday Telegraph 20-year-old Payne said: "They are f***ing great musicians. I am a bit jealous of them. I am working on learning to play now but I wish I had put the time in like they did when they were kids.

"They are so massive right now. 'It's huge getting to play stadiums at their age. It couldn't happen to a nicer band."

The Aussie pop rock band is made up of singer Luke Hemmings, 17, Bassist Calum Hood, 18, Guitarist Michael Clifford, 18 and Drummer Ashton Irwin, 19,
