The British rock band postpones their shows in Dallas, Texas and New Orleans after a doctor finds a blood clot on bassist Ted Dwane's brain.

Mumford & Sons has canceled three U.S. dates as bassist Ted Dwane will undergo a brain surgery. The British rock band announced the unfortunate news on their official website. The band said that Dwane "has been feeling unwell for a few days" before a doctor discovered "a blood clot on the surface of his brain that requires an operation."

The surgery forced the band to cancel their appearances in Dallas on Tuesday (June 11), Woodlands, Texas, on Wednesday (June 12) and New Orleans on Thursday (June 13). "All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can," the band continued. " We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour."

"Ted is receiving excellent care and we are being assured that he will recover quickly from surgery," the band added. "We're all wishing Ted a speedy recovery."

Mumford & Sons is scheduled to headline this year's Bonnaroo festival in Manchester, Tennessee, on June 15. The band, whose latest album "Babel" won a Grammy last February, is also set to hit the stages at the U.K.'s Glastonbury Festival on June 30 and Chicago's Lollapalooza later this summer.
