To our fans –

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 in Dallas on Tuesday 6/11, Woodlands on Wednesday 6/12, and New Orleans on Thursday 6/13. All dates will be rescheduled and will be announced as soon as we can; all tickets for this week’s events will be honoured at their rescheduled dates. We have no plans to cancel or postpone any other appearances along this current tour.

We’re all wishing Ted a speedy recovery.
Much love,
Mumford & Sons

    Though I was bummed that I drove 5hrs. from Oklahoma to Dallas just to turn back!! Wishing the band the best and Ted prayers to you..which I would’ve got online fast enough to have purchased tix to the Guthrie show but didn’t happen!! I Will Wait for the resheduled Dallas show!!..I wanna thank you for helping methrough my mothers loss with your music!!! much love to all..

  4. Got to see you guys in Austin on Sunday the 9th. Great show. Also have tix to the Woodlands show which is still considered postponed, instead of cancelled. I hope you guys make it back through. The week after Oklahoma (sorry you have to go there… we Texans understand the misery that is Oklahoma….JK, Okies) would be great… it won’t be “Hot as Balls” them… although still damn hot.
    Regardless, Ted’s health and predicted recovery is excellent news. I hope you guys enjoy the rest of your summer. If you make it back, see you at The Woodlands. If not, see you next time. God Bless and God Speed!

    EVERYONE! they’re not cancelling the rest of their tour (at least for now, but I doubt they will), but the following concerts ARE cancelled: Bonnaroo and Telluride Festivals and the show at Cricket Wireless Amphitheater in Bonner Springs, KS.

    Very sad that I had already flown to Dallas for the concert but glad to hear that Ted is doing well. Ready to fly back whenever I need to! I can’t wait to hear this band in concert!

    From Missoula, Montana: wishing Ted a full recovery; hoping all of you can get what I assume is going to be some much needed rest during this tough time; and when you’re ready to hit the stage after Ted heals, you’ll definitely be able to pick up where you left off because your fans will have been screaming warm fuzzies for you the whole time, now and when you come back! By the way, I heard you live for the first time at Sasquatch a few weeks ago, and it was one fantastic concert! Legendary! And by the way again, MISSOULA would love to host one of your concerts, whether it be for one night, or, better yet, a 2014 GOTR stopover. But first things first: Ben, Marcus, Winston: for now, just take care of Ted, take care of each other, and take care to take your time … Lub, a newby Mumfordian

    Though my Bonnaroo ticket was purchased for the treat of hearing Mumford and Sons on my birthday, June 15, I’m happy to hear that Ted is taking enough time off to fully recover. Prayers for his swift and complete healing and for safe travels home for all.

  12. John Henry says:

    Hi! We have tickets for Dallas and Telluride and though we’re unbelievably bummed that we’ll miss you we are equally unbelievably happy that Ted’s on the road to recovery! We’re also holding tickets for Guthrie so we’ll see you in Oklahoma! Rest up Ted!

    I heard it is on facebook, which I cannot check.

  14. LadyyBluee11 says:

    Is it really true? Is the tour canceled? :(

  15. ctys says:

    Word is that they are canceling the rest of the tour. Gosh I hope that is not true :( Sure hope Ted recovers fully though.
