Per an announcement on the band's website, Mumford & Sons have canceled three headlining concerts due to a medical emergency plaguing bassist Ted Dwane.
Gigs in Dallas, The Woodlands and New Orleans will be postponed to later dates while Dwane undergoes an operation to treat a blood clot discovered near his brain. The band posted this statement to its website on Tuesday morning:
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.
