Which Musician Was Hospitalized For a Blood Clot on His Brain?

A scary situation for Mumford & Sons bass player Ted Dwane.

According to a statement posted on the band's website, three shows have been postponed after Dwane was hospitalized with a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires surgery.

Our friend and bandmate Ted has been feeling unwell for a few days, and yesterday he was taken to a hospital to receive emergency treatment. The scans revealed a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation.  Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery.

Sadly we have to postpone three upcoming headline shows planned for this week in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
Much love,
Mumford & Sons

 

According to WebMD, blood clots can sometimes form abnormally, causing heart attack, stroke or other serious medical problems.
