Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was rushed to a hospital on Monday where doctors discovered a blood clot on his brain, requiring surgery, the band announced on its website.

Described as "feeling unwell" for days, Dwane is expected to recover quickly from the surgery, which has led to the postponement of three concerts this week: tonight in Dallas, Woodlands, TX on Wednesday and New Orleans on Thursday.

All dates will be rescheduled, and the band does not plan on postponing any other dates, which include a visit to Bonnaroo on Saturday.

Here is the band's full statement:

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
