Multi platinum-selling and Grammy® Award-winning rock band, Maroon 5, announced a return to the road with their upcoming 2016 fall tour. The highly anticipated tour kicks off in San Antonio on September 3 and includes dates throughout North America. Maroon 5 plays Orlando’s Amway Center on Friday, September 9.
The band’s latest album, “V,” debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 and is a sonic summation of the group’s journey to date – capturing the essence of the earliest Maroon 5 hits through to their most recent successes, as well as providing a picture of its artistic growth in the future. The album’s debut single, “Maps,” set a record for the highest debut by a group on Top 40 radio charts in 18 years and has earned a top 100 spot in 18 countries. The music video for the band’s chart-topping single, “Sugar” has logged nearly one billion views to date. The band’s latest single “Feelings,” is out now.
Maroon 5’s world tour kicked off in the U.S. in February 2015. European dates followed during May and June, along with a festival appearance at the Mawazine Festival in Morocco as well as an Asian leg in September that led into dates in Australia and New Zealand. A handful of 2015 dates remain for the Maroon V Tour, including two nights for New Year’s Eve in Las Vegas at the Mandalay Bay Events Center. A Latin American leg is scheduled for five countries in February and March. By the time the tour wraps, the band will have played over 120 concerts in 30+ countries with more than 2,500,000 fans in attendance.
Capturing their first of three Grammy® Awards as Best New Artist of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, “Songs About Jane” and their double-platinum album, “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long,” which included hits like “Makes Me Wonder” and “If I Never See Your Face Again.” In 2010, the band released their third studio album, “Hands All Over,” which featured the group’s anthemic chart-topping smash single, “Moves Like Jagger.” The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time. Maroon 5’s fourth album, “Overexposed,” quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of its singles rising to the top of the charts and setting an all-time record for the most number ones (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with that album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with over 50 million dollars in ticket sales.
