Maroon 5 Sets Concert at ASU
Angelo State University will present Grammy Award-winning band Maroon 5 in concert on Saturday, Nov. 21, at the Junell Center/Stephens Arena, 2235 S. Jackson St.
The ASU concert will be the 10th of 11 stops on the band’s exclusive nationwide tour in advance of the release of their upcoming new album in the spring of 2010. The University Center Program Council (UCPC) is sponsoring the ASU appearance.
Maroon 5 recorded its new album this summer with legendary producer Robert John “Mutt” Lange. The album follows their multi-platinum-selling second album, “It Won’t be Soon Before Long.”
Hip Hop MC, griot and singer/songwriter K’naan will serve as the tour’s opening acts for the tour.
“After spending the summer in the studio recording overseas, we are excited to be returning home and to the road this fall,” said Adam Levine, the band’s front man. “It’s exciting for us to hit the stage again together and also get a chance to debut some of our new material that we’ve been recording for our fans.”
Maroon 5 has also announced the $15K Starving Student Challenge, a contest giving one fan $15,000 using Twitter and TwitVid. Concertgoers will be required to take a video of themselves at the show and submit it to twitvid.com/maroon5. One winner will be picked at the end of the tour.
In addition, the band will be running several contests to win tickets to the show. Band member James Valentine will challenge students to tennis matches at each tour stop in exchange for tickets. Fans must follow Maroon 5’s Twitter site to find out where and when Valentine will be hitting the school’s courts.
Levine will also give fans opportunities to win tickets through his Twitter account at twitter.com/adamlevine.
