Mumford & Sons have rescheduled the gigs they were forced to scrap after bassist Ted Dwane was diagnosed with a blood clot on the brain.
Dwane underwent emergency surgery to remove the clot, prompting his bandmates to scrap a series of dates and festival appearances.
Updating fans on the musician's recovery and announcing the rescheduled shows in August and September (13), the band states: "Firstly, we are pleased to report that our beloved Ted is making a steady recovery from his operation and wearing his newly acquired shaven-headed hairstyle with enviable levels of suave.
"A huge, huge thank you to all for your messages of support; the man himself is rather overwhelmed. Secondly, on a related note, we can now confirm details of the rescheduled dates for the recently canceled U.S. shows."
The band is still scheduled to perform at Britain's Glastonbury festival this coming weekend (28-30Jun13).
'Smalls Change (Meditations Upon Ageing)' arrives in April.
The two awards have made for a great 72nd birthday present for the country music icon.
