Ted Dwane, Mumford & Sons, under the knife to remove bloodclot in brain
Mumford & Sons will have to wait to play New Orleans, as they were forced to postpone their next three gigs. According to their note to fans, Ted Dwane is undergoing emergency surgery to remove a clot on his brain. So far no word or cancellation of their Bonnaroo appearance this weekend.
Fans are encouraged to hold on to their tickets so they can be used when the shows are rescheduled.
Godspeed on the recovery of Dwane.
Here’s the letter the band wrote:
“Dear All -
Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and today he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. This morning, 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.
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.
Mumford & Sons”
