Mumford and Sons Bassist Ted Dwane Returns Home Following Brain Surgery

Ted Dwane

After feeling unwell for several days, Mumford and Sons bassist Ted Dwane was rushed to the hospital last week for emergency brain surgery. Thankfully, following a successful operation Dwane is now home recovering.

The Grammy-winning band canceled several shows in light of Dwane’s illness, including headlining spots at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tenn. and Telluride in Colorado. While the band could have found a temporary bass player, they chose to take time off until their main bassist could recover. Talk about sticking together!

So far, it seems that Dwane is recovering well. He posted a photo to the band’s website and wrote, “Bear with a sore head! Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I’m home.”

There’s no word on whether Mumford and Sons will make up the dates they have already canceled, but it appears that they don’t plan to mark out any more appearances.

“We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour,” a statement from the band reads.

Mumford and Sons’ current tour wraps on June 22, but they return to the states in late August through mid-September for another run. Hopefully by then Dwane will have made a full recovery.
