Maroon 5 - Red Pill Blues Tour Live in Singapore

Date 7 March 2019
Venue: National Stadium

ONE OF POP MUSIC'S BIGGEST ACTS will be bringing their largest show to date to Singapore next March. Before you catch Maroon 5 in concert, here are five interesting facts you need to know about the band:

1. Maroon 5 was once Kara's Flowers. When the band was formed in 1994, it was named after a groupie, who singer Adam Levine, keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Madden and former member Ryan Dusick all had a crush on. They released an album The Fourth World under that name.

2.Maroon 5 does not have five members. The band started out as a four-man band. Over the years, it has had a number of member shake-ups. Today, there are seven of them in the group.

3.The band's music video for 'Wait' was filmed using Snapchat filters. Adam Levine shot the short videos on the app around his home with cameos from his wife, Victoria's Secret Angel Behati Prinsloo, and their dog.

4. Maroon 5's music video for 'Girls Like You' (with Cardi B) showcased women power. Singers Camila Cabello, Jennifer Lopez and Mary J Blige, YouTube stars Lilly Singh, model Ashley Graham, TV host Ellen DeGeneres, comedienne Sarah Silverman, Olympic gymnast Aly Raisman and professional race car driver Danica Patrick were some of the female celebrities who appeared on the music video.

5. Adam Levine is sexy. The charismatic frontman was named People magazine's Sexiest Man Alive in 2013, becoming the first singer and the second non-actor (after John F Kennedy, Jr.) to claim the title.
