For those of you (well, us) who were planning on attending one of Mumford and Sons' concerts this weeks, we have bad news to pass along.

Mumford and Sons have postponed tonight's concert in Dallas (June 11), as well as their shows tomorrow in The Woodlands (June 12) and Thursday in New Orleans, after announcing bass player Ted Dwane will undergo emergency surgery.

Here is the release from the band sent out this morning:

To our fans:

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 in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
Much love,
Mumford & Sons

While disappointing news, we can only hope for a quick and full recovery for Ted.
