After feeling sick for a few days, Dwane was rushed to the hospital yesterday. The band postponed their scheduled concerts in Dallas, Houston and New Orleans, respectively, in order to allow Dwane time to recover from his operation. All previously purchased tickets will be honored at the concerts’ future dates.

Mumford & Sons doesn’t expect to cancel any other shows, and the band still plans on performing its set at Bonnaroo this Saturday.

The band members released the following statement on their website:

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
