It seems there is no stopping Maroon 5 from enjoying continued success in the industry. After breaking into the music mainstream and producing hits like She Will Be Love, This Love, Makes Me Wonder¸and Moves Like Jagger, Adam Levine and company are still among the hot selling artists today despite their absence from the concert scene.
Their last major concert was held in the House of Blues in Westwood Califronai last January 12th, 2012. That said, they did perform in a series of simultaneous music performances last March at the Chicago City Union Station, teaming up with Sara Bareilles. The event literally transformed a significant portion of the train station into a pseudo night club, complete with red carpet, cash bars, and lounge chairs.
But commuters did not seem to mind. After all, it was Maroon 5 performing.
“It’s not as chaotic as I thought it would be,” Kammy McClurg, 44, said when she was redirected to another exit. Several commuters got a glimpse through the curtained off-doors as the concert was going on. Celebrities in the audience included Rosie O’Donnell.
But for those who are looking to get real concert action, Maroon 5 will be playing in the following venues:
May 17th at the MGM Grand Theatre at Foxwoods, Mashantucket, Connecticut;
May 18th and 20th at the Jones Park, Gulfport, Mississippi;
May 19th at the Pimlico Race Course, Baltimore, Maryland.
Maroon 5 front man founds calling in coaching
Many people thought it was a bad idea for Maroon 5’s lead vocals Adam Levine to join NBC’s TV-sining contest show The Voice as a coach. But for Levine, the move defined him.
“‘I am a fan of people saying that because it must mean I’m doing something right. I’ve never been a fan of the cookie-cutter way of life. I liked that this was spiking something new into what I do,” Levine said.
Levine found success as a coach in the show when he coached Javier Colon, a singer-songwriter from Stratford, Connecticut, throughout the show’s first season. Colon won the competition last year and his winning performance was received with positive reviews by Levine’s fellow coaches.
Levine tells that he is not about winning when it comes to coaching his contestants. “I am there to help people be fully realized and have people see the best versions of who they are.”
Levine is also a big fan of rising NBA point guard Jeremy Lin of the New York Knicks.
“He is an inspiring dude,” Levine says of Lin.
