Jack Johnson To Replace Mumford & Sons At Bonnaroo

Following bassist Ted Dwane's surgery, Mumford & Sons canceled their weekend appearance at Bonnaroo. But ticket holders shouldn't despair as organizers have filled the slot with Jack Johnson.

''I called my band and asked if they were up for it,'' Johnson said in a statement.

''Long story short - they are headed this way. I've got a lot of lyrics and chords to relearn by Saturday night. I was here to play the first Bonnaroo and it is a very special festival to my band. We are excited to hit the stage again.''

Meanwhile, Mumford posted on their site that Dwane is recovering nicely from surgery for a blood clot on his brain.  However, the band has also canceled their set at Colorado's Telluride Bluegrass Festival next week. They are set to resume touring June 30 at Glastonbury.
