Mumford & Sons revealed that they would be cancelling a few tour stops over two weeks ago so that bassist, Ted Dwane could have brain surgery to removed a blood clot on his brain, the band were hoping that recovery would be fast and they would be performing at the following week’s Bonnaroo.
Due to doctors orders, the band decided withdraw from Bonnaroo to give the bassist time to recover. The festival went ahead and asked Jack Johnson, who was already at the Manchester, TN location for a surprise appearance for his upcoming new album, to fill in the vacant spot on the roster.
A little over two weeks later and the band have announced that everything was good with Dwane (he even posted pictures of his newly shaven head online, letting fans know he was doing great) meaning that it was time to get back to work and continue their tour.
The dates that they had cancelled which included Dallas; Woodlands, Texas; and New Orleans would be rescheduled for a later time, but starting in late-August, the band would beheading out on their “The Full English Tour.” The first stop will be in Toronto and then go through North America wrapping up in Simpsonville, SC o September 11. After that, the band will head down south to perform their rescheduled dates.
The band is currently schedule to perform at Sunday’s Glastonbury Festival in Britain with Dwane returning to his bass on stage. “To be honest, Ted dealt with the whole thing better than any of us could have imagined,” keyboardist Ben Lovett said in an interview with The Radio Times. “All we feel is incredibly grateful and happy that he’s going to be O.K. and that we’re going to get back out on that stage at Glastonbury as four brothers and do what we do.”
