Ted Dwane's hospitalization stops Mumford and Sons' gigs

Mumford & Sons' bassist Ted Dwane has been hospitalized June 10 after feeling unwell for a few days. The news that Dwane has a blood clot on the surface of his brain was announced the band themselves via the Mumford & Sons website. Dwane is expected to have a full recovery and we all wish him the best. Here is the message from the band:

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 ... All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can ... We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We're all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
