Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane undergoes emergency brain surgery

 
Mumford & Sons has canceled future tour dates as the bassist for the band, Ted Dwane, was diagnosed with a blood clot on his brain leading to emergency surgery.
 
Theb British folk-rock band Mumford & Sons were forced to cancel three concerts (all of which were sold out) here in the united States as the band waits to hear the results of Dwane’s much needed emergency surgery to remove a blood clot on the brain. Mumford & Sons recently won a Grammy, taking home Album of the Year for “Babel” and won in February at BRIT awards.
 
“The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation,” the band said in a statement on its website. It also reads, “Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.”
 
The concerts in Dallas on Tuesday, Woodlands on Wednesday and New Orleans on Thursday, all have been cancelled and will be rescheduled. The “Summer Stampede” tour in North America will continue after that, with the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 15.
