Maroon 5 fan Stephanie Green went to the concert of her favorite band in Toronto to listen to their music. What she didn’t expect was to be hit by a microphone thrown from the stage by Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s lead singer.
Levine was reportedly annoyed with a non-functioning PA system and, in his exasperation, threw the microphone against the floor. The treacherous mic, however, bounced off the stage and flew into the audience, hitting Stephanie Green on the head. He, however, immediately regretted his gaffe, invited Green to the stage, hugged her and apologized, as reported by NME.
“In my flustered state, I might have thrown my microphone on the ground and then it might have bounced off of the ground, into poor, sweet Stephanie’s face. I felt so utterly terrible that I had perhaps wounded this young fan”, Levine told the crowd”.
What could have easily become a basis for a lawsuit in some other case, turned out to be the fan’s dream come true – Stephanie Green stated that it was literally the best day in her life. Levine didn’t limit the apology with words – he provided Green with a ringside seat for the remainder of the concert.
It is not the first time Adam Levine goes out of his way to do something special for his fans, although usually it is not combined with battering them first. Only recently, he made a dream come true for a 10-year-old boy with Down syndrome – young Christopher is a great fan of Adam’s, so much so that his teacher recently made a YouTube video of him singing and dancing to one of his songs. According to The Inquisitr, the video quickly attracted the attention of a Maryland radio station, which also played a pivotal role in arranging the meeting.
“Hot 99.5’s the Kane Show saw the video and arranged for Christopher to get backstage passes and free tickets to the Maroon 5 concert with his mother and three teachers. On Monday night, Christopher was taken to the Maroon 5 concert by his mom Cecelia. Christopher was able to meet and spend time with his favorite band”.
With his many activities, Adam Levine can do with some good publicity: in addition to being the lead singer of Maroon 5, he is one of the co-hosts of music show The Voice, and another show with his participation, Songland, is currently in the works.
