Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane received emergency treatment on Monday after doctors discovered that the musician had a blood clot on the surface of his brain.
As the Grammy-winning group explains in a statement on its website, Ted had been "feeling unwell for days," and went into the hospital yesterday for treatment and was sent into surgery after scans uncovered the clot.
"Ted is receiving excellent care, and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery," the band says in the online statement.
But as a result of the medical emergency, Mumford & Sons will have to reschedule three performances that were planned for this week: tonight's show in Dallas; Wednesday's gig in Woodlands, Texas; and Thursday's stop in New Orleans.
If you've already bought tickets for one of those events, hold on to them, because they'll be honored at the rescheduled performances, dates for which will be announced as soon as possible.
"We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour," the band, which is expected to play the Bonnaroo music festival on Saturday, said. "We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."
