Ted Dwane is ready to return to the stage. 

The Mumford & Sons' bassist, who underwent emergency surgery to remove a blood clot in his brain just two weeks ago, has recovered from the operation and is now set to perform at a festival in Glastonbury in Britain, according to BBC News

The band had been touring in support of their Grammy-winning sophomore album, Babel, when they were suddenly forced to cancel a number of concert dates, including their headlining performance at the 2013 Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival. 

"To be honest, Ted dealt with the whole thing better than any of us could have imagined," keyboardist Ben Lovett said in an interview with The Radio Times. "All we feel is incredibly grateful and happy that he's going to be OK and that we're going to get back out on that stage at Glastonbury as four brothers and do what we do."

The folk-rock band, which took home the 2013 Grammy for Album of the Year, will close the main stage Sunday at the Glastonbury festival. 

After the operation, Dwane took to Twitter to thank fans for their support and posted a post-surgery pic. 

"Bear with a sore head!" he wrote. "Thanks so much for all the well wishing, it seems to be working! I'm home."

Mumford & Sons also announced their plans to go back on tour in late August, along with rescheduled dates for their canceled U.S. shows. 

Music to our ears!
