Ted Dwane was rushed to the emergency room yesterday after suffering blood clot on his brain, with Mumford & Sons releasing a statement that updates fans on the condition of its bassist:
"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 says, adding:
"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."
As a result of this incident, Mumford & Sons - on tour in support of its second album - announced that it has postponed shows in Dallas, Woodlands and New Orleans.
"We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour," added the group. "We're all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."
The quartet's next concert is scheduled for June 15 at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, TN. Let's all hope everyone can make it and it proceeds as planned.
