Maroon 5 Embark on Spring Arena Tour
Maroon 5 has announced their “biggest tour yet” for next spring.
The extensive tour will kick off February 13 in Columbus, Ohio, and the tour is scheduled to continue until a show on April 6 at the Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Illinois. In between those dates, the band will play a slew of concerts in cities including New York, Toronto, Omaha, Seattle, Los Angeles, Nashville, Atlanta and Washington, D.C.
For all the dates on the tour, Neon Trees and Owl City will serve as special guests.
“This is our biggest tour yet,” said frontman Adam Levine in a video posted about the tour. “Anybody who has seen a Maroon 5 show, even those people are going to be blown away by what we’re doing now because we really feel this calling to put on the best show we’ve ever put on. And that is so exciting to us and I know that’s going to be exciting for our fans too.”
The tour will support the group’s fourth album, Overexposed, which was released in June. The album peaked at number two on the Billboard 200 albums chart.
“We feel like we’ve had this resurgence, this kind of second life where we are pushing ourselves that much harder now to make the best concert experience… it’s certainly going to be something we want the whole world to see.”
In addition to the tour, it was also announced that the band will release their next single from Overexposed, “Daylight,” to radio in November. The band has already released two singles from the album: “One More Night” and “Payphone.”
“One More Night” currently is in its fifth week at the top of the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart.
James Valentine, Maroon 5’s guitarist, told Billboard that the current album is “more focused than we’ve ever been.” He also said the group is already working on new material.
