Mumford & Sons received a bit of scary news Monday (June 10) when bassist Ted Dwane was discovered to have a blood clot on the surface of his brain. According to a statement the band posted on its website, Dwane was feeling ill for a few days and received emergency treatment yesterday, when doctors found the clot. It required surgery, and he is expected to recover quickly.

So quickly, in fact, that the band is only postponing three US tour dates: Dallas, Woodlands and New Orleans from June 11-13. Head below to see the band’s full statement.

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. Much love, Mumford & Sons

Here’s hoping for a quick, full recovery for Ted.
