This summer is gonna hurt after all. Adam Levine, frontman for the hottest band around, Maroon 5, announced that he is going to have to forgo the band’s Liverpool show due to sore vocal chords.
According to E! Online, Adam released a statement explaining in detail the reasoning behind canceling the gig.
“I am really sorry not to be able to perform tonight, but I have been told to rest up by the doctor. As a band we always want to give every performance our all and sadly I just cannot do that tonight.”
The Maroon 5 frontman also took to Twitter to further explain the situation and apologize for the Liverpool concert cancellation, claiming his “chords are toast.”
Guys, I HATE having to let you down tonight. My chords are toast. We resume Sunday in Birmingham. Apologies. 🙁

Undoubtedly, there will be a ton of disappointed UK fans who were looking forward to watching Adam Levine move like Jagger onstage. So far, as reported by the Inquisitr, Maroon 5 has received rave reviews for its performance on their UK tour, which, according to the Maroon 5 website, is in its opening leg.
The fact that there are still 10 more shows lined up for Europe this summer could lead many Maroon 5 fans to question whether or not a similar fate could befall them when Levine and company make their way to their part of the world. With stops in Morocco, Spain, Germany, Japan, and more, will Adam’s vocal chords hold up for the long haul? Only time will tell.
In the meantime, the Liverpool Echo has released information on how UK fans can get a refund for their ticket purchase. A statement released by the arena has “advised people to return to their point of purchase” in order to arrange a refund. Further, the arena will also work on refunding credit cards and cash payments.
“Echo Arena and TicketQuarter customers will be refunded via their credit card over the next few days. Any Echo Arena or TicketQuarter customers that have paid by cash will be able to receive a refund in person from TicketQuarter in Queen Square from Monday June 1. The arena has also advised that any queries should be taken up with ticket holders’ point of purchase.”
The next stop on the Maroon 5 V tour is Birmingham, England, on May 31, followed by their final UK stop in Manchester the following night.
