They’ve created the jam of the summer (so far). They’ve flashed lead singer Adam Levine’s bum on camera for everyone to gawk at. And they’ve taken the world by storm with their international tour promoting their latest album V. So what’s next for Maroon 5, arguably the biggest band in the world?
As it stands now? More of the same!
Having already released new music in the form of “This Summer’s Gonna Hurt,” there doesn’t look to be a new Maroon 5 album in the cards anytime soon. But that doesn’t mean overseas fans can’t catch the band’s power-packed performances in the meantime. Adam Levine and company are in the midst of their worldwide V tour and according to their website, the band still has upcoming shows in Spain and Portugal before taking a hiatus for the rest of the summer.
In September, the band returns to the road with dates in Japan, China, Korea, the Philippines, Singapore and Taiwan. Then, Maroon 5 wraps the V tour with stops in Australia and New Zealand in early October before returning home. It’s interesting to note that dates for the world tour seem to conflict with tapings of NBC’s hit singing competition The Voice, on which Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine is a judge.
According to Christian Today, The Voice season nine is set to begin in September, exactly when Maroon 5 is booked to appear in Asia. Would the show dare start without heartthrob Adam Levine in the judge’s chair?
It is possible, considering how often the coaches change on The Voice. For example, season nine is already experiencing a shakeup in their lineup. As reported by Inquistr, Gwen Stefani is returning to the show just one season removed as a Voice coach. However, in the very same press release announcing Gwen’s return, it was also confirmed that Adam Levine will, in fact, be there, as well.
“I’m coming back and am so excited! I can’t believe I get to return to The Voice,” Stefani said in a press release. “It’s so inspiring to be around such incredible talent and music. I’m looking forward to working again with Adam, Blake and Pharrell. I love those guys.”
So how will Adam Levine swing going from tapings of The Voice to flying cross-country to be with the rest of Maroon 5 on tour? And more importantly how will he find time to write new material for the band?
In this case, it looks like it’s the fall that’s “Gonna Hurt” Maroon 5 and Adam Levine way more than the “Summer” has already.
