A health concern has forced Mumford & Sons to postpone three concert dates on their current U.S. tour. Tonight’s (June 11) concert at Gexa Energy Pavillion in Dallas, Texas, as well as concert dates in The Woodlands, Texas, and New Orleans, Louisiana, have been cancelled.
According to an announcement on Mumford & Sons’ website, bassist Ted Dwane was taken to the hospital yesterday where a blood clot was found on the surface of his brain. He will have to undergo surgery to fix the clot, but treatment and recovery require the band to postpone their tour until Dwane is on the mend. Complete statement below.
“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.”
At this time, only tonight’s show in Dallas and the subsequent performances in New Orleans and The Woodlands have been affected, and the band does not anticipate any other dates being affected. The rescheduled dates will be announced soon, and tickets for the three performances will be honored.
