Maroon 5 Tickets for Sale
With over ten million albums and fifteen million digital singles sold in the United States alone, Maroon 5 has risen from humble beginnings to become one of the most popular pop acts in the world.
Originally known as Kara’s Flowers, a nineties grunge four-piece, four high school friends reunited in 2001 to form Maroon 5. Maroon 5’s new sound reflected the maturation of the four high school friend’s musical abilities. Their rich blend of pop and R&B was the driving force behind their debut album Songs About Jane. With hit singles like “This Love,” “Harder to Breathe,” and “She Will Be Loved,” Songs About Jane reached the top five of the US Hot 100 charts. This early success led to a Grammy win for Best New Artist and led Maroon 5 to superstar status.
While many acts are unable to build on early success, Maroon 5’s star has only continued to rise. The band’s second album It Won’t Be Soon Before Long, surpassed the success of Songs About Jane, giving Maroon 5 their first number one on the album charts. The sophomore effort also featured their first number one single, “Makes Me Wonder.” This success continued with their next album as well. Although Hands all Over only reached number two on the album charts, lead single “Moves Like Jagger” is one of the highest selling singles of all time.
Maroon 5 is still soaring in popularity with their fourth release Overexposed. The tongue-in-cheek title references the band’s massive radio play, commercial success, and the sudden stardom of frontman, Adam Levine. Thanks to his success with Maroon 5, Levine appears as one of the judges on the popular reality TV show The Voice. He has hosted Saturday Night Live and his voice has been featured in singles by Kanye West, Alicia Keys, and The Lonely Island
Maroon 5 is one of the biggest music acts in the world and if their 27 million albums sold are any indication, they are going to be pleasing audiences for years to come.
Plan B can put Plan A to shame. Singer/guitarist Adam Levine, guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bass player Mickey Madden and drummer Ryan Dusick would second that emotion, seeing as how their first shot at the big time got them some rave notices, but not much else. Now, their second shot, in the form of funky pop rock outfit Maroon 5, thanks to the song "Harder To Breathe," has the LA-based Maroon 5 looking like the Cinderella story and has fans looking for Maroon 5 tickets every time they announce a tour or release a new album.
The four band members have been acquaintances since junior high school and became one of those rare groups to actually not only remain friends, but go on to form a band that lasted longer than a summer. At first that band was called Kara's Flowers and they achieved some measure of success, playing Whiskey A Go-Go in 1995. They even signed with Reprise Records, released an album (Fourth World), and toured in support of Reel Big Fish and Goldfinger in 1997.
Adam Levine (vocals/guitar), Jesse Carmichael (keyboards), Mickey Madden (bass) and Ryan Dusick (drums) certainly learned a great deal from the experience, but success came years later after the band changed its name to Maroon 5. Five years after their first album, the boys released Songs About Jane. The album went multiplatinum around the English-speaking world and in Japan and peaked at number six on the Billboard 200 thanks to the success of the singles "Harder to Breather", "This Love", and She Will Be Loved".
Maroon 5 toured constantly in promotion of the album and did not release the sophomore album It Won't Be Soon Before Long four years later in 2007. It immediately broke out with "Makes Me Wonder", the band's number one single. The album did not sell as well as the debut, but did go platinum in several countries, including going double-platinum in the U.S.
The latest album, Hands All Over, may be the last from Maroon 5. Adam Levine has indicated that the group may have reached the end of its run together. The album has gone gold so far after peaking at number two on the Billboard 200. One of the three singles, "Misery" landed inside the Top 20 of the Hot 100.
