Mumford And Sons Reschedule U.S. Dates After Bassist Requires Surgery
There’s been something of a life-and-death drama in the Mumford and Sons camp, which put their current American tour in jeopardy, not to mention the health and well-being of their bass player, Ted Dwane.
It seems poor Ted had been feeling unwell for a few days, and went off to hospital to get checked out. A head scan revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain, which meant a speedy operation to remove it, and, naturally, the rescheduling of a number of gigs — Dallas yesterday, Woodlands today and New Orleans tomorrow.
Thankfully, the update on his condition came today, via Winston Marshall’s Twitter feed:
Ted is recovering nicely from surgery. He’s a brave little boy. Thanks for all your support. We are very grateful
