Mumford - Mumford & Sons Star Released From Hospital

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has been released from hospital after undergoing surgery to treat a blood clot on his brain.

The musician was admitted to a medical facility on Monday (10Jun13) to receive treatment for the condition, forcing the band to axe three upcoming shows.

The folk rockers had hoped to resume their tour at the Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tennessee over the weekend (15-16Jun13), but they will have to forgo that gig as well as a set at the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado and a show in Bonner Springs, Kansas next week (begs17Jun13).

A post on the band's official Facebook.com page reads, "It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain.

"Today, however, also marks the end of our Summer Stampede Tour. We were hoping to have made it out by Bonnaroo this weekend. But it is with sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our scheduled performances at both Bonnaroo and Telluride Festivals, and our show at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, Ks. If we could've we would've, you know that about us. We trust that you can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full recovery, and that this is based purely on the medical advice we have received.

"On behalf of Ted, and all of us really, we would like to thank every one for their compassion and support at this time and we are very excited to get back out on tour as soon as we can."

The band is due to headline Britain's legendary Glastonbury festival on 30 June (13).
