British folk band Mumford & Sons is returning to Atlanta after canceling some shows earlier this month.

The Grammy-winning London band was forced to cancel the final three U.S. dates of its "Summer Stampede" tour after doctors discovered a clot on the surface of bassist Ted Dwane brain, which required immediate surgery.

The band will play Sept. 10 at Centennial Olympic Park. Tickets are being sold through an invitation system online.

Fans must sign up at http://invitation.mumfordandsons.com/onsale-registration through July 3. Invites will be sent out beginning July 8 with details on how to order tickets.

The group posted on Facebook that this ticketing method is "a simple process and the most effective way we've found to ensure the real fans get in and the ticket touts stay out."

The four-member band, which formed in 2007, also includes Marcus Mumford, Winston Marshall and Ben Lovett. They won Album of the Year for "Babel" at the Grammy Awards in February.
