As Maroon 5 fever grips the nation, the US pop superstars, armed with new album 'V', take it up another notch next spring with three UK arena dates with more to follow.
Recorded in LA over the past year with producers Max Martin, Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Shellback and Sam Martin, the much-anticipated 'V' reunites Maroon 5 with long-time keyboardist Jesse Carmichael. Rolling Stone raved about the new album saying 'The 11 songs are precision-tuned and lustrously polished, jammed with hooks and choruses' in their glowing 4* review.
With charismatic frontman Adam Levine at the helm, Maroon 5's live shows are in a class of their own, as they showed earlier this year when they played two sold out O2 Arena dates in January to rave reviews. The Star called it 'A masterclass of showmanship', the Standard said that they had 'returned in spectacular style' and the Telegraph that their set had 'provided moments of pop perfection'.
