Mumford & Sons made their return to the stage on Sunday night (June 30th), closing out England's Glastonbury Festival with the band's first performance since bassist Ted Dwane had surgery last month to remove a blood clot from his brain. According toBillboard, Dwane performed with the rest of the band, seemingly showing no ill effects from the incident which put him in the hospital and forced the group to cancel the last several shows of its U.S. tour.

Mumford & Sons got a warm reception from the huge audience, which sang along to the hits "I Will Wait" and "Little Lion Man."

The band encored with a version of the Beatles' "With A Little Help From My Friends" that saw members of Vampire Weekend, the Vaccines, the Staves and First Aid Kit join them onstage.

Mumford has more dates mapped out through the summer, including a headlining slot at Lollapaloozain Chicago on August 3rd.

The band will return to North America for another run starting in late August that will include new shows as well as rescheduled ones from last month.
