BONNAROO & US TOUR – A STATEMENT FROM THE BAND

Dear friends,

It is with great joy that we can announce that Ted has been discharged from hospital and is on the road to a full recovery. The surgery went well, and the excellent medical team helping him are very pleased with his progress. He has been nothing short of heroic in how he has handled the whole ordeal, and now it has been medically proved that he does indeed have a brain.

Today, however, also marks the end of our Summer Stampede Tour. We were hoping to have made it out by Bonnaroo this weekend. But it is with sadness that we have to announce the cancellation of our scheduled performances at both Bonnaroo and Telluride Festivals, and our show at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, KS. If we could’ve we would’ve, you know that about us. We trust that you can respect our collective desire to encourage Ted to make a full recovery, and that this is based purely on the medical advice we have received.

On behalf of Ted and all of us really, we would like to thank every one for their compassion and support at this time and we are very excited to get back out on tour as soon as we can.

Ted, Ben, Marcus and Win

I know your head can be really sore and take time to heal, but we just want you back healthy and happy!!! Just relax & don’t push it! THANK YOU for all the wonderful music and good times….

    I just want to thank you guys for your music. It has brought my child out of depression, he listens to your band all day everyday. I am so glad that Ted is getting better and you all are in our prayers. I never knew that people I have never met would affect life so much. Your lyrics have given my son his life back. Thank you. I hope next spring you will return to the US we are planning our family vacation around where your concert will be. Northwest please;)

    Just wanted to say that my heart sank when I heard what was going on. I’m among the many who were lucky enough to see you guys perform. (Surrey, British Columbia. Thank you Marcus for pointing out the full moon behind the crowd that night! I’m sure no one noticed it until you said what you did! And Ben! You are fabulous for playing with a bandaged hand! You all brought me to tears twice that night!) As for the current situation, get well quickly Ted! All my love and respect to you all! Keep writing and loving what you do! Can’t wait for more from my all time favorite band!

    I was so glad to hear that Ted is doing well and has been discharged. Being a nurse, I know how scary something like this can be. My husband and I were so blessed with being able to see you guys at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA, on June 2nd, however we did notice at that time that Ted did not look well. I was so glad that we got to go, as my husband is disabled with a number of gastro issues but was able to make the night a success. I am so glad that everything turned out so good for all of you. You all will always be in our thoughts and prayers. All our love from sunny southern CA.

    The whole reason I went to Bonnaroo was to see my favorite band of all time, you guys! I have to say I was really upset & even cried when I heard you had to cancel, but I know it was for good cause! I hope you all can make it back to the farm next year because I’m dying to see you all again! I hope Ted has a speedy recovery & all is well with not only him, but the rest as well. I love you guys!

  20. meghan22 says:

    Please come back and do the Bonner Springs show when all are well! Was so looking forward to it!!

  21. Ivy&Twine; says:

    Thank you guys so much for keeping us updated on Ted’s surgery and recovery! It’s much appreciated! While fans are disappointed that the rest of your Summer Stampede is cancelled, let me assure you that Ted’s health and well being are valued much, much more by all. Like you said, we know that if you could’ve, you would’ve.

    Hope to see you in the U.S. again soon! Cheers.

  22. hope ted get’s well soon , you can cancel all the shows as long as you simply concider coming to Mexico. im the biggest mummford and sons fan .

    Whoa there everyone! No bad vibes in front of the boys please….remember they are the musicians of our soul’s.

  24. Hannah :D says:

    Oh and BTW, whoever wrote that utterly horrible comment about it being wrong for the Mumfords to cancel these shows on account of poor Ted, I am with J Corley Ackley. You do indeed have a shallow soul. The fact that the other boys don’t want to leave Ted alone during this difficult time is just one more example of the touching brotherly love that they share, and I can only respect them more for it. How you can even dare to quote their words is beyond me. Their REAL fans are not fickle but will continue stick with them through good times and bad.

  25. Hannah :D says:

    Oh I am so glad that Ted is back home again! Cancel all the shows you need to, boys, just get our Teddy all better. Don’t worry about the shows, your totally right to take your time and all us REAL fans understand completely. There’s no rush, “we will wait, we will wait for you” until Ted is ready to join you again :D
