Just a few weeks after undergoing emergency brain surgery, bassist Ted Dwane was back on stage with his band Mumford & Sons.
The musician made his return on Sunday night in Somerset, England when the folk group performed at the Glastonbury music festival. "I've come here a couple of times when the festival isn't here and stood under the Pyramid Stage with my mate and imagined what it would be like," Dwane told the BBC backstage before going on to perform. "So, the fact that we are getting to do it is all I've been thinking about right now.
Marcus Mumford was happy to have his band mate back on stage, telling the crowd, "We have danced together, we have celebrated the fact that Ted is alive together. Shall we sing together?"
This isn't the only good news for fans! Mumford & Sons announced on their website that not only have they rescheduled their missed U.S. dates but they are also extending their tour.
Dwane's emergency surgery this past June was due to a blood clot on the surface of the brain, and caused the band to cancel a few shows. Luckily, it was a successful procedure, and the bassist was tweeting again in no time. Shortly after the surgery, he wrote tweeted: "Bear with a sore head! Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working."
