Maroon 5 knows how to throw a beach party.
The Adam Levine led super group packed almost 50,000 fans into Atlantic City for a special beach concert experience meant to help drive the struggling local economy. And according to 6ABC, Maroon 5 did its job.
“Many families took in the concert in a town that’s trying to reinvent itself as a more family-friendly destination. The Atlantic City Alliance director says the concert is expected to have an economic impact on the city in excess of $24-million.”
The show didn’t go off completely without a hitch, with some Adam Levine fans complaining that they weren’t able to see anything through the throngs of people and that security wasn’t enforcing upgraded tickets that should have resulted in seats closer to the stage. But aside from typical concert complaints like that, there weren’t any reported arrests or violence. And overall, the concert did it’s job, boosting the Atlantic City economy desperate after four major casinos closed within the past year.
“It’s all about driving tourists to Atlantic City. We are here to diversity our tourism economy, show people a great time and a spectacular show,” Jeff Guaracino of the Atlantic City Alliance said.
And spectacular as it was, it had to feel good for Adam Levine and company to be a part of a concert experience that actually went off without a hitch. Recently, the band had some Asian tour dates get cancelled on them, as reported by the Inquisitr. The rumored reason, of all things, was a tweet sent out by the keyboardist wishing the Dalai Lama a happy birthday.
And for Adam Levine, the past few weeks have been rife with rumors that his marriage to super model Behati Prinsloo is on the rocks. According to Hollywood Life, Prinsloo is upset that Levine may be returning to his wandering ways.
“Before marrying Behati, Adam was known as a serial model dater with a wandering eye, and according to some sources, he’s starting to go back to his old ways.”
And according to InTouch, Prinsloo has been keeping a close eye on Levine whereever he goes.
“She never wanted to be that nagging wife, but now she is, constantly calling or texting Adam to see where he’s at. It’s driving him crazy—and pushing him further away,” their inside source said. “He promised Behati that after they got married, things would change—and they haven’t.”
Whether or not these rumors are true, Adam Levine doesn’t have time to answer for them. His band Maroon 5 will be headed overseas on the final leg of their V tour.
