UPDATE: A limited number of tickets are still available to the rescheduled show via an invitation-only onsale on Friday, August 2. Fans can register for an invitation at invitation.mumfordandsons.com. Also, Johnny Flynn has officially replaced Michael Kiwanuka as one of the opening acts; the Mystery Jets remain on the bill.
Fans of Mumford & Sons were hoping for a quick answer on when the band would reschedule a postponed Dallas concert, and they just got their wish. Just under two weeks after they had to delay due to a health issue with bassist Ted Dwane, the band has announced it will return to Gexa Energy Pavilion on Wednesday, September 18.
The folk rockers ultimately had to cancel six shows due to Dwane's having a blood clot removed from his brain, including stops in New Orleans; Houston; Dallas; Bonnaroo; Telluride Bluegrass Festival; and Bonner Springs, Kansas.
All but the Bonnaroo and Telluride dates will be made up at the end of their new Full English Tour, which hits nine other North American cities in late August and early September.
Dwane is reportedly recovering nicely from his surgery, albeit with a freshly shaved head and a gnarly new scar. The band is scheduled to resume touring on June 30 with a show back in their native United Kingdom.
All tickets to the original June 11 concert will be honored, although it is unclear at this point whether Michael Kiwanuka and Mystery Jets, the two original opening acts, will join Mumford & Sons on the new date. The Vaccines and Bear's Den will be the opening acts for the other dates on the Full English Tour.
