Glastonbury 2013: Mumford & Sons Caused 'Concern' With Organisers Following Ted Dwane Health Scare

Emily Eavis reckons he will get a 'hero's welcome'

Glastonbury honcho Emily Eavis has said that she was "concerned" about Mumford & Sons star Ted Dwane when she heard about his terrifying health scare.

The bassist had to have emergency brain surgery earlier this month in order to remove a blood clot, causing many fans to wonder if their headlining slot on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday would be able to go ahead.

The band were quick to squash rumours that they would cancel the UK's most popular festival, however, and now Emily Eavis - who runs the whole shebang along with father Michael - has said that she expects Dwane to have a "hero's welcome".

She told The Sun: "We were concerned like everyone else when we heard about Ted's operation but they very quickly assured us the show would go on.

"I think he will get a hero's welcome when he steps on the Pyramid Stage.''

The Glastonbury Festival took a year out in 2012 to allow for the London Olympic Games, but it's back in force this year with the Rolling Stones to make their debut at Worthy Farm in Somerset on Saturday.

Arctic Monkeys are set to wow crowds tonight.
