Winners for Best Album of the Year, the group Mumford & Sons, reacts on stage at the Staples Center during the 55th Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, California, February 10, 2013.
Mumford & Sons are canceling shows in Dallas, Houston and New Orleans due to a medical emergency.
According to a statement from the Grammy Award-winning band released Tuesday, bassist Ted Dwane has a blood clot on his brain that will require surgery.
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.
