Dwane should be fine after emergency surgery.



Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was taken to a hospital on Monday after suffering a blood clot on his brain, the band revealed Tuesday. The 28-year-old is now recovering, but will be missing a few shows, as you might expect.

"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 band posted on its website Tuesday. "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 band said they were postponing Tuesday's show in Dallas, Wednesday's concert in The Woodlands north of Houston and Thursday's date in New Orleans, at least. Tickets will be honored at their future dates, and they havw "no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour." They are playing two sold out shows in St. Augustine on Sept. 13-14.
