MANCHESTER, Tenn. -- It's Jack Johnson to the rescue at Bonnaroo.
Johnson has agreed to take tonight's headlining slot at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival after Mumford & Sons were forced to cancel due to bassist Ted Dwane's illness.
Festival officials announced the move Friday morning. The Upside Down singer last headlined at Bonnaroo in 2008.
Mumford & Sons' decision comes after Dwane received treatment this week for a blood clot on his brain. The band postponed three shows in Dallas and Woodlands, Texas, and New Orleans after the blood clot was discovered but hoped to play Bonnaroo on Saturday night.
Dwane has been discharged from the hospital and is recovering from the procedure but is not yet ready to play. Rather than perform with a replacement, the London-based, Grammy-award-winning folk rock band decided to pull out.
