English folk rock band Mumford & Sons postponed three concerts this week so bassist Ted Dwane can undergo emergency brain surgery for a dangerous blood clot. The band revealed Dwane’s health scare in a post on their website. The post reads:
“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”
No other details on Dwane’s condition were immediately available. Mumford & Sons, which consists of Dwane, Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett and Country Winston, won the Album of the Year Grammy for their second album, Babel, this year.
