PITTSBURGH (Sept. 2, 2014) - Multi platinum-selling and Grammy Award®-winning rock band, Maroon 5, revealed details today for THE MAROON 5 WORLD TOUR 2015 in support of the band's fifth studio album, V. Produced by Live Nation, THE MAROON 5 WORLD TOUR 2015 will kick off at American Airlines Center in Dallas on Feb. 16, 2015 and will take the band to 27 cities throughout North America including New York City, Los Angeles, Toronto, Vancouver, Chicago and Washington, D.C. Maroon 5 will then bring their highly anticipated tour to Europe for dates in the UK, Germany, Italy, Spain and Portugal. MAGIC! will join the tour as special guests. Rozzi Crane will open the tour in the US while Nick Gardner will serve as the opener in Europe.
Their new album, V, featuring the Billboard Top 10 smash hit, "Maps," and their brand new single, "Animals," is out today on 222 Records/Interscope Records. “Maps,” which Rolling Stone declares “a stomping, funk-soul-gospel breakdown,” quickly reinforced the group’s status as a powerhouse in popular music, setting a record for the highest debut by a group on Top 40 radio charts in 18 years. Fans who purchase a ticket to THE MAROON 5 WORLD TOUR 2015 online at www.livenation.com will also receive a digital download of the album. Following yesterday's performance on TODAY for the "Toyota Summer Concert Series," Maroon 5 will appear on The Tonight Show With Jimmy Fallon (tonight, Sept. 2), America's Got Talent (Sept. 3), and The Ellen DeGeneres Show (Sept. 8). Adam Levine will also be making an appearance on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart on Sept. 4.
About Maroon 5
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 most recent 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 #1s (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart’s 20-year history. In conjunction with the album, Maroon 5 wrapped one of the highest grossing tours of 2013 with over 50 million dollars in ticket sales.
