Mumford & Sons bassist, Ted Dwane, has a blood clot on his brain that requires surgery. The band has cancelled their next three gigs, no word yet on whether they will still be playing Bonnaroo this weekend (June 13-16).

The Grammy Award-winning folk-rock group postponed concerts Tuesday in Dallas, Wednesday in The Woodlands in Texas and Thursday in New Orleans. A statement on its website said there are no plans to postpone or cancel any other appearances on the current tour. Mumford & Sons has a headlining gig Saturday at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester, Tenn. []

Get well soon Ted!
