Mumford and Sons Sets New Dates for Postponed Shows

The band reschedules the tour dates they previously canceled due to bassist Ted Dwane's brain surgery.

Following the emergency surgery undergone by their bassist Ted Dwane a couple of weeks ago to remove the blood clot in his brain, English folk rock band has rescheduled the tour dates they previously postponed due to the health scare. Aside from their own concerts, the Grammy-winning group was also forced to skip their headlining gig at the recently-concluded 2013 Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival in Manchester, Tennessee, where filled in for them.

"Firstly, we are pleased to report that our beloved Ted is making a steady recovery from his operation and wearing his newly acquired shaven-headed hairstyle with enviable levels of suave," the Marcus Mumford-fronted band wrote on their website. "A huge, huge thank you to all for your messages of support; the man himself is rather overwhelmed. Secondly, on a related note, we can now confirm details of the rescheduled dates for the recently canceled U.S. shows."

Those four new dates are the September 16 show at Mardi Gras World in New Orleans, followed by two gigs in Texas, September 17 in Cynthia Wood Pavilion in Woodlands and September 18 in GEXA Energy Pavilion in Dallas. Then the quartet skips a day to travel to Bonner Springs in Kansas for their September 20 concert at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre.

The rescheduled shows will come after the band has completed the rest of their North American "The Full English" tour which kicks off on August 26 in Toronto. They will be playing a total of nine shows until September 11 across the U.S. Prior to that, they will first be headlining the 2013 Glastonbury Festival later this week.
