Mumford & Sons has shared some scary news with their fans, as they announced they'll be postponing their next three shows while their bandmate Ted Dwane recovers from a blood clot in his brain.
The bass player was taken to the hospital for treatment, but the Grammy-winning folk band released a statement saying they're optimistic he'll make a full recovery:
"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."
The boys are planning on rescheduling their next three shows through the 13th on Thurday, but they said they have no plans to cancel any concerts beyond that. So it definitely sounds like the band is expecting a speedy recovery as they're scheduled to headline at Bonnaroo in Manchester, Tennessee this Saturday night.
We're glad to hear that the band is remaining optimistic despite the scary diagnosis, and we hope Ted is back on his feet and back to rocking soon!
