Jun 11, 2013


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A Bonnaroo headliner may not make it to Tennessee this weekend.

Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane has a blood clot on his brain that requires surgery.

The Grammy Award-winning folk-rock group has already postponed concerts scheduled this week in Dallas and New Orleans. A statement on the group’s website says there are no current plans to postpone or cancel any other appearances on the current tour.

Mumford & Sons is scheduled to appear Saturday at Bonnaroo in Manchester.

The statement says Dwane hasn't felt well for a few days and went to the hospital Monday for emergency treatment. Scans revealed the blood clot on the surface of his brain, requiring surgery.

The band is being assured that he will recover quickly.
