Pop rock titans Maroon 5 are one of the hottest acts in the world right now, and it should come as no surprise whatsoever that their upcoming tour dates around the world are very much sought out among music fans.
The gang is looking at a massive string of dates ahead of them that will commence on December 30 and 31, with a two-night New Year performance at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, NV.
Then, in late February 2016, the gang will embark on a tour of Central and Latin America, paying a visit to Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Chile, and Brazil.
Once the month-long trek is done, the band is looking at a large touring gap that stretches way across early September, when Maroon 5 will finally hit the USA.
The run will last for a month and a half, featuring several dates in Canada as well. Some of the notable stops include Salt Lake City, Portland, Cleveland, Montreal, and more.
The tour’s final stop has been booked for October 16, live at the Oracle Arena in Oakland, CA.

LA pop rockers Maroon 5 began their multi-platinum career under the name of Kara’s Flowers one sunny day in 1994. From the very get-go, the act featured the majority of members it consists of today, specifically Adam Levine on lead vocals and guitar, Jesse Carmichael on guitar and backing vocals, Mickey Madden on bass guitar, and Ryan Dusick behind the drum kit.
The boys were merely a group of high-school friends back then, and hardly had the clue about the chart-topping future the cosmos had set out for them.
But it wasn’t an easy journey, not by a long shot. Their 1997 unofficial debut album, “The Fourth World,” was as big of a flop as it can get, massively disappointing the band and the management. It sold less that 5,000 copies within a month, resulting in Kara’s Flowers being dropped from the label and even breaking up in 1998.
But they were back in the year of 2000, and they were thirsty for vengeance. The team buckled up, officially changed their name to Maroon 5, added guitarist James Valentine to the roster and dropped a mammoth jam called “Songs for Jane” in 2002.
As their official debut album, the record spawned the global hit called “This Love,” as well as a few other notable tunes like “Harder to Breathe,” “Sunday Morning,” “She Will Be Loved” and “Must Get Out.” The stats say it all – 10 million copies shipped around the world, many tours and four years of constant promotion. Many critics ripped the album, but to no avail, as the M5 train kept a-rollin’.
With merely one album, Maroon 5 have cemented their position as one of the important pop acts of the 2000s, but the boys were thirsty for more, therefore deciding to chug along their musical journey by all costs. However, with stressful non-stop performance obligations, the tolls were bound to be taken. Drummer Dusick wasn’t able to physically and mentally cope with the stress, resulting in his absence from the band on several occasions. He officially left the band in 2006, and was replaced by Matt Flynn.
In 2007, the band earned their long overdue No. 1 US record with their sophomore studio release “It Won’t Be Soon Before Long.” The band reached the figure of 6 million units sold worldwide as more hits kept dropping – “Makes Me Wonder,” “Wake Up Call” and more.
Maroon 5 became a well-oiled machine by now. Strong tours, strong albums, not much incidents, hits only, a winning formula by all means.
In 2010, “This Love” finally earned a worthy competitor for the title of the most renowned Maroon 5 tune as the band’s third album, “Hands All Over,” was officially released, featuring a hit summer jam called “Moves Like Jagger.”
Fourth M5 album, “Overexposed,” was quick to drop in 2012, and so was 2014’s “V,” bringing yet another intercontinental hit to the table – “Animals.”
The train keeps chugging strong, and it all seems quite well for Mr. Levine on co, at least on the surface. As Adam himself noted, “You can’t expect me to be fine, I don’t expect you to care.”
