    Mumford & Sons were forced to cancel all of their shows this week after their bassist Ted Dwane was admitted to the hospital for emergency surgery to treat a blood clot on his brain! Yikes. That is so scary.

    As a result, the band has canceled planned gigs in Texas and Louisiana.

    A website post read as follows: "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... All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can... We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour. We're all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."

    As are we! Get better soon Ted.

    Did you send good thoughts and prayers into the universe for Mumford's Ted Dwane?
