British folk band Mumford and Sons recently had to cancel their headlining performance at the 2013 Bonnaroo Music and Art Festival. The announcement came after their bassist Ted Dwane had to be hospitalized for the removal of a blood clot in the brain. Meanwhile, a replacement for Mumford and Sons has been brought to fill in for them and that will be Jack Johnson.
Johnson confirmed the news in a statement which read, “I was on my way to Bonnaroo to sit in on a set with my friends ALO last night when we got the call asking if I could possibly help out and cover for Mumford and Sons”. Johnson’s statement also reads that he came to know about Dwane’s condition from the band and was happy to know that he was on the road to recovery.
The British folk band had to cancel their headlining slot after the bassist needed to be hospitalized. Earlier this week, the band postponed two Texas shows, but did not mention if they would still be performing at Bonnaroo.
Johnson was happy to step up instead of Mumford and Sons, but the singer added that the main stage audible needed some scrambling on his behalf. The singer also said that he made last minute preparations and is excited to perform with his band
