Mumford & Sons Bassist Undergoes Emergency Brain Surgery
Ted Dwane, bassist for the band Mumford & Sons, is in the hospital after having emergency brain surgery according to People.com. The surgery was necessary after doctors discovered a blood clot on his brain. The band has cancelled three scheduled performances to allow time for him to heal.
The band announced the bassist’s illness as well as the shows’ cancellations on their official website:
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 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.
Fans have been sending their well-wishes as well.
