Mumford star Dwane leaves hospital

Mumford And Sons have had to call off the rest of their current US dates

Mumford And Sons stars Ted Dwane has been discharged from hospital after an operation to remove a blood clot from his brain.

The bassist is now "on the road to a full recovery" after having treatment earlier this month, according to a statement on the Grammy-winning band's Facebook page.

However, the group also announced that they have decided to cancel the remainder of their US shows, including an appearance at the Bonnaroo festival this weekend.

The statement said: "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."

It goes on: "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 Amphitheatre 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."

The band members also thanked their fans for their support.
