Maroon 5 Announces New Tour and Album
I know we have to wait a little longer for the actual album, Hands All Over, to come out (September 21), but at least we won’t have to wait for a North American tour, right?! So far, they’re set to play 16+ shows around the country, and they’ll be inviting some up-and-coming artists to join them as openers (or just or fun, too). Bands like Guster and artists like VV Brown, Owl City, and Kris Allen will be taking the stage along with Maroon 5.
Maroon 5 has been around for a surprisingly long time, as their first studio album came out in 1997. Their break-out album, though, came with Songs About Jane (a great album–get it) in 2002. Then, there was a five-year break until It Won’t Be Soon Before Long in 2007. Now, again, after a three-year break comes Hands All Over, and I’m so ready for it! And, rumor has it that the band will be performing one of the songs from the album (or maybe more) on their summer tour.
Although, I don’t know if it can be considered a rumor if it comes from the band itself…but that’s neither here nor there. Check out the tour dates (and special guests) below!
