Mumford & Sons have placed their upcoming shows on hold after their bass player Ted Dwane was diagnosed with a brain clot on Monday.
Mumford & Sons have issued the following statement:
“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”.
Mumford & Sons shows this week have been postponed but shows further on will go ahead. “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”.
Ted is a founding member of Mumford & Sons. The band was formed by Marcus Mumford, Ben Lovett, Winston Marshall and Ted Dwane in London in December, 2007.
