NORTH TEXAS (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Tonight’s Mumford & Sons concert at the Gexa Energy Pavilion in Dallas has been canceled.
The group called off the 7 p.m. show here in North Texas, and two other upcoming performances, after it was discovered that bassist Ted Dwane had a blood clot on his brain that will require surgery.
The Grammy Award-winning folk-rock group postponed concerts near Houston, in the Woodlands on Wednesday and a Thursday performance in New Orleans. A statement on their website said -
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.
Mumford & Sons
With no plans for future cancellations the band will have to be ready to perform by the weekend. Mumford & Sons has a headlining gig Saturday at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee.
The statement says Dwane hasn’t felt well for a few days and went to the hospital Monday for emergency treatment. Scans revealed the blood clot on the surface of his brain, requiring surgery. The band is being assured that he will recover quickly.
