Maroon 5 have been singing their new hit song “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt” on the airwaves, but it looks like this summer’s going to rock for these guys. Maroon 5 announced that they have two summer shows lined up in August, 2015, that will take place in Pennsylvania and New Jersey.
The pop-rock band just announced that they’re going to headline in Atlantic City on Aug. 16. Maroon 5 will perform along with Nick Jonas and The Voice runner-up Matt McAndrew. This concert series is limited to just 120,000 fans, and is not a free show. Tickets will go on sale on Friday, June 26, at 10 a.m. at Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster Outlets, or at the Ticketmaster hotline at 800-745-3000, according to app.com. American Express card members, Legacy Fan Club, and Junior Fan Club ticket pre-sales start Tuesday, June 23, and local venue pre-sales will start Thursday, June 25. Tickets will start at $39.50 and up.
This is just one of the concerts that Maroon 5 has lined up this summer. The band is also scheduled to perform at Hershey Park on Aug. 15. Maroon 5 just finished the U.S. leg of their world tour in April, which included a stop at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, as previously reported via NJ.com. The band’s final stop also marked as a historic stop, since it was the last concert at the arena, which closed a few weeks later. Maroon 5’s tour will continue on Oct. 4 in New Zealand.
The band does have bad news for their fans in Indonesia. The group announced that they cancelled their concert in Jakarta scheduled for September.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to cancel our show in Jakarta on the 23rd Sept,” the band wrote on their official Twitter account.
Maroon 5 cancelled their concert in respect to the Idul Adha celebrations taking place on the same day of their concert. During this religious celebration, all other activities at the Indonesia Convention Exhibition (ICE) would be cancelled, according to a previous report. The Live Nation Indonesia (LNI) organizers said that they hope Maroon 5 will reschedule at a later date. They also plan to refund fans with an email explanation.
This isn’t the first time that Maroon 5 had to cancel one of their concerts. They previously cancelled shows in Liverpool, U.K., on May 30. Adam Levine had to be on medical leave due to throat problems. This concert would’ve been the third concert in Indonesia for Maroon 5, since their previous concerts took place on April 27, 2011 and Oct. 5, 2012.
Fans are encouraged to check out the details of the cancellation at maroon5jakarta.com. Fans in the United States can get Maroon 5’s tour dates and music news at their Zumic artist page. More information can also be found at maroon5.com.
