"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 band wrote in a note to fans. "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."

Their gig in Dallas on Tuesday (11 June), another in Woodlands, Texas, on Wednesday and a New Orleans date on Thursday have all been postponed.

The British folk rockers pledged to reschedule the dates as soon as they can. However, fans are now worried about the band's headline Glastonbury slot at the end of June.
