One of the biggest tours
On February 2015, the band started its Maroon 5 World Tour 2015 in support of its fifth album V. The album was released last autumn and debuted at No. 1 at the U.S. Billboard Hot 100. There are 5 main singles and one promoted single on the album.
Although the critics disagreed about the latest work of Maroon 5, the band’s fans seem to be beyond happy with the fifth album of their favorite pop-rock band. Apparently, this is why Maroon 5 is now on the top of the Billboard weekly Hot Tour recap.
In ten months of 2015, Maroon 5 had 45 performances attended by around 654,000 fans. The first leg of their tour was held in North America, where the Californian band had an incredible 28-city run through the United States and Canada. All May and a few days in June Maroon 5 was performing in Europe. After taking part in the Mawazine Festival in Morocco on June 6, the band returned to Europe. Then, there was a short run back home in the U.S. with two concerts in New Jersey and Pennsylvania and the next two legs in Asia and Oceania.
Starting from Oct. 24, Maroon 5 have the next part of their world tour, which leads them back in North America. There are going to be performing five more concerts there―two in the U.S. and three in Mexico. In March, the band plans to start the final part of their world tour in South America.
The highest-grossing performance was held in Taipei, Taiwan. Maroon 5’s concert at the TWYC Nangang Hall has gathered almost 39 thousands of fans and was reported with $3,6 million in sales. The second biggest performance of Maroon 5 was held at Madison Square Garden in New York.
There was one pretty special event during the American part of the tour. In East Rutherford, N.J., the band played its concert at the Izod Center. It was the very last event performed at the famous arena with a 34-year-long history, and shortly afterward the place was closed.
