The folk band Mumford & Sons has rescheduled shows after their bassist had to be treated for a blood clot in his brain Monday.

CNN reported Ted Dwane received emergency treatment Monday after doctors discovered the musician had a blood clot on the surface of his brain.

The Grammy-winning group explained in a statement on its website, Ted had been “feeling unwell for days.”

He went into the hospital Monday for treatment and was sent into surgery after scans uncovered the clot.

“Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery,” the band said in the online statement.

But as a result of the medical emergency, Mumford & Sons will have to reschedule three performances that were planned for this week:

– Tuesday’s show in Dallas
– Wednesday’s gig in Woodlands, Texas
– Thursday’s stop in New Orleans

If you’ve already bought tickets for one of those events, hold on to them.

They will  be honored at the rescheduled performances; the dates will be announced as soon as possible.

“We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour,” the band, which is expected to play the Bonnaroo music festival on Saturday, said. “We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.”
