Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has been hospitalized and will undergo surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain, the band announced on their website Tuesday. The band has postponed shows in Dallas, New Orleans and Houston in the meantime.
The band posted the following statement on their website:
To our fans -
Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation. Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.
Sadly we have to postpone three upcoming headline shows planned for this week in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.
We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
Mumford & Sons
The tour is expected to pick back up this weekend at Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee.
