Maroon 5 launch summer tour

  • April 1, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) – Maroon 5 says they’re working on a new album, but before that the pop-rockers will launch a summer tour that finds the fivesome playing outdoors.

The Grammy-winning band announced Monday that they’ll headline the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off Aug. 1 in St. Louis and will feature Kelly Clarkson. They will perform at First Niagara Pavilion in Hanover Township Aug. 6.

Frontman Adam Levine says the “summer vibe is always different than the indoor arena tour because there’s less emphasis on production and more on live music.”

Levine says he and his bandmates are riding high off the success of last year’s platinum-selling “Overexposed.” They’re also working on a follow-up, and Levine says they have “some great songs in the can.”

Guitarist James Valentine adds the new music “may be a little darker.”
