(UPDATE) Maroon 5 certainly will be pleasing the northeast with the announcement of two shows at Madison Square Garden on March 5th and 6th. Tickets currently average $316, well above the $272 tour average and 4th most expensive city on deck. LA's The Forum is the priciest while Louisville's KFC Yum Center remains the cheapest spot on the tour.
In the same week that their fifth studio album, V, hit the shelves, Adam Levine and co. have now confirmed that they will head out on tour with the release of Maroon 5 tickets for a global trek in 2015.
The Los Angeles six-piece, who are expected to debut at number one on the Billboard 200 with their follow-up to 2012’s Overexposed, will take in a total of 27 cities on the North American section of their fifth worldwide tour before heading over to Europe for shows in the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Italy and Spain.
The Maroon 5 2015 World Tour will kick off at Dallas’ American Airlines Center on February 16 – tickets for which are available on TicketIQ at a get-in price of $140 – and will then stop off at the likes of Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Feb 27 ($148), New York’s Madison Square Garden on March 5 ($503) and the Palace of Auburn Hills on Mar 18 ($127) before concluding its opening leg at Inglewood’s The Forum on April 3 ($503).
There are plenty of Maroon 5 tickets on offer at TicketIQ for most shows with the Mar 9 performance at Philadelphia’s Wells Fargo Center currently with the highest get-in price at $661 and the Mar 21 gig at Kansas City’s Sprint Center with the lowest at $116.
The three-time Grammy winners, who will first take to the stage at London’s iTunes Festival next week, will be joined on the tour by Canadian reggae-fusion outfit Magic!, who recently reached number one on the US Hot 100 with “Rude,” and Rozzi Crane, the soulful singer-songwriter signed to Levine’s 222 Records label.
Fans with Maroon 5 tickets should also look forward to hearing all the highlights from the band’s new LP including singles “Animals” and “Maps,” while recent shows have featured renditions of their chart-toppers “One More Night,” “Moves Like Jagger” and “Makes Me Wonder,” their early hits “This Love,” “Harder To Breathe” and “She Will Be Loved” and Levine’s collaboration with Gym Class Heroes, “Stereo Hearts.”
