Mumford And Sons Postpone Shows Due To Medical Issue

MUMFORD & SONS STILL EXPECT BONNAROO
HEADLINING APPEARANCE TO GO ON

Mumford & Sons should be on top of the world right now as they prepare to make their triumphant return to the farm in Manchester, TN this weekend to headline Bonnaroo. Unfortunately, a medical issue has fell bassist Ted Dwane leading to the postponement of three shows this week. As of now, the band still expects to go on with their Bonnaroo performance.

Here's an official statement from the band explaining the situation:

To our fans -

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.

Much love,
Mumford & Sons

Our thoughts are with Dwane as the JamBase staff wishes him a speedy recovery.

UPDATE - JUNE 13: Mumford & Sons have posted the following announcement to their Facebook page - most notably canceling their Saturday appearance at Bonnaroo,

BONNAROO & US TOUR NEWS Dear friends, It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain. Today, however, also marks the end of our Summer Stampede Tour. We were hoping to have made it out by Bonnaroo this weekend. But it is with sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our scheduled performances at both Bonnaroo and Telluride Festivals, and our show at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, KS. If we could've we would've, you know that about us. We trust that you can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full recovery, and that this is based purely on the medical advice we have received. On behalf of Ted, and all of us really, we would like to thank every one for their compassion and support at this time and we are very excited to get back out on tour as soon as we can. Ted, Ben, Marcus and Win
