Mumford & Sons Bassist Ted Dwane Treated for Blood Clot on Brain
Get well soon! Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was rushed to the hospital on Monday, June 10. The 28-year-old musician's medical scare was revealed via the band's official website the following day.
"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," fellow band members Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall and Ben Lovett said in a statement. "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."
Because Dwane needs time to recuperate, the band has been forced to postpone its sold-out shows in Dallas (June 11), Woodlands, Texas (June 12) and New Orleans (June 13). "All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week's events will be honored at their rescheduled dates," the band told its fans. "We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour."
The English folk band is currently on the road to support their 2012 disc, Babel, which won Album of the Year at the 55th Annual Grammy Awards in February.
