Mumford & Sons bass player Ted Dwane undergoing emergency surgery this week
Mumford & Sons have been forced to postpone three dates of their U.S. trek this week, due to bass player Ted Dwane having to go through emergency surgery to a remove a blood clot from his brain.
Mumford & Sons posted the news on their official website on Tuesday (June 11). The band stated, “[Dwane] 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.”
The band’s canceled gigs include tonight’s show at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas, Texas; Wednesday’s stop at Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands, Texas; and Thursday’s concert at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, La. Mumford & Sons expect to reschedule all of the missed tour stops soon.
Thankfully, the band stated that Dwane is anticipated to “recover quickly” and that the group is raring to play the Bonnaroo festival this weekend.
