Mumford-Sons-4

Mumford & Sons have just announced that they will be postponing a couple of upcoming tour dates due to doctors finding a blood clot in bassist, Ted Dwane’s brain.

The band were on their US Summer Stampede tour when Dwane was hospitalized after feeling unwell for a couple of days. Once he was hospitalized, it was discovered that he had a blood clot on the surface of his brain. Due to the seriousness of the situation, the band have decided that it would be in their best interest to postpone their upcoming tour stops in Dallas; Woodlands, Texas; and New Orleans.

The band wrote the following on website about Dwane:

“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 … All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can … We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.”

According to reports, Dwane is expected to recover safely and quickly just in time to perform at their Manchester, Tennessee tour stop for Bonnaroo on June 15th.
