Mumford and Sons Bassist Ted Dwane Hospitalized

Ted DwaneMumford and Sons have postponed three headlining shows this week after bassist Ted Dwane was hospitalized while on their current tour.

“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 band stated on their Facebook page. “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 and Sons’ headlining performances in Dallas, Texas, Woodlands, Texas and New Orleans, Louisiana will be rescheduled as Dwane undergoes surgery for the clot. The group went on to say that each of the dates will be rescheduled as soon as possible and that there are no plans for further concert cancellations for the remainder of the tour.

We’re wishing Ted a quick recovery.
