Maroon 5 will mount concert at the Smart Araneta Coliseum on September 18


Adam Levine and his Maroon 5 bandmates will once again perform live in the Philippines this 2012.

Maroon 5 will have their Overexposed Tour with special guest: The Cab on September 18, 2012 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

This will mark the band’s third time to perform in the Philippines following their 2008 concert and their Hands All Over concert in 2011.

The Grammy award-winning pop rock band is behind the hit songs "Moves Like Jagger," "This Love," "She Will Be Loved," and "Wake Up Call."

The American band--composed of vocalist Adam Levine, guitarist James Valentine, keyboard player PJ Morton, bassist Michael Madden, and drummer Matt Flynn—is slated to release their Overexposed album by June 26.

The album features collaboration with well-known producers- Max Martin (the album’s executive producer), Benny Blanco and Ryan Tedder. Their single off their new album, “Payphone,” features rapper Wiz Khalifa for the guest verse.

When Adam Levine was tapped as a mentor for the hit reality show The Voice, it seems that Maroon 5 has reached that stage where their popularity has become increasingly hard to deny.

“It’s like, ‘We get it—we’re overexposed,’” Levine was quoted as saying in a release provided to the media. “We’re just trying to preemptively go where the conversation is headed anyway. We figured we’d get there first.”

Their latest phenomenal hit “Moves Like Jagger,” a song that went down in history as one the most paid downloaded song, prompted the band to explore the idea of co-writing. The underlying message of their new album title captures the band willingness to take a step further in terms of music and took risks.

“I feel like we’ve been standing on the edge of a cliff for a long time,” Levine says. “We’re a band that’s always been close to being full-on pop, but that’s rooted in a lot of other things: rock, soul, funk, the list goes on. Overexposed is the first time we’ve ever completely embraced the idea of making pop music—of making songs for the radio. We just said, ‘Let’s not be afraid to do what we basically are.’”

Maroon 5’s fourth album is the result of that. Levine says that of all the band’s albums, Overexposed feels “both most and least like Maroon 5. There’s lots of traces of the past, but it also hints at a new idea,” the singer explains. “More than anything I think this record says that it’s always cool to try—that you should always be willing to take a step beyond whatever feels comfortable.”

Maroon 5’s Overexposed Tour with Special Guest: The Cab is presented by Midas Promotions in cooperation withDayly Entertainment.

Tickets will be available starting June 25, 2012. Those interested to watch may be purchased online at www.ticketnet.com.ph or call Ticketnet hotline 911-5555 for inquiries.
