(Radio.com) Although Mumford & Sons bassist Ted Dwane was released from the hospital late last week after emergency surgery for a blood clot on the surface of his brain, he was not able to perform at Bonnaroo, thus forcing the band to cancel the appearance this weekend.

The band announced they would have to cancel their headlining appearance at the festival, along with the rest of their tour dates for the week. They posted a long statement to their Facebook page that reads:

"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." See who took their place.
