Mumford & Sons has been forced to cancel three headlining shows this week due to a medical emergency within the band.
According to their website, Ted Dwane, bassist and multi-instrumentalist for the band, will undergo an emergency operation to treat a blood clot that was discovered near his brain earlier this week. The folk rockers have announced that upcoming shows in Dallas, Woodlands and New Orleans will be cancelled and rescheduled for a later date.
From the Mumford & Sons 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.
