The Grammy award winning Mumford & Sons have postponed several shows this week.
Band member and bassist Ted Dwane was rushed to the hospital on Monday.
The band issued the following statement: "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."
Shows this week in Texas and New Orleans will be rescheduled for a later date. Our thoughts are with Ted as he undergoes and recovers from his surgery.
