Rushed by fan

Music Performance

Levine is caught off guard when a fan runs onto stage and tries to hug him during the Maroon 5 concert at the Honda Center in Anaheim. Levine pushes woman away, but then puts his arm around her until security arrives. He tells the crowd it was terrifying to be singing with your eyes closed, and then suddenly have someone in his face.

She, like, cut my ear with her fingernail. It’s all good. I love you sweetheart, I’m glad you’re a fan of the band. It’s only mildly creepy that that just happened.

Tour dates announced

Levine announces Maroon 5 2015 World tour dates during On Air With Ryan Seacrest. The tour starts on Feb 16 in Dallas, TX and ends on June 17 in Lisbon, Portugal.

We started rehearsing, we started putting it together. It’s kind of in its early stages. One thing I know for sure, and I think the band is all super pumped about it, is we’re going to go hard. We put on a big rock and roll concert and it’s very different from our albums. It’s very unleashed and crazy.

I had been through that (relationship struggle) before, maybe not the same version. That’s what connected me to this guy. I immediately understood exactly what needed to be done with this character just based on my life’s experience.

Adam Levine interview

Seacrest interviews Levine during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about joining the tv show The Voice as a judge.

I was very skeptical, kind of about doing it because I wasn’t sure what the perception would be. I wasn’t sure if there would be any chemistry at all between us on the show, the people on the show. I wasn’t totally sure about anything, but I am a fan of taking risks.

Single Release

Maroon 5 releases the single, Misery, from their album, Hands All Over. Adam Levine:

Misery’ is about the desperation of wanting someone really badly in your life but having it be very difficult. Kind of what all the songs I write are about. I’m not treading on new ground, but I think a lot of people – including myself – deal with that all the time. Relationships are difficult, and it’s good therapy to write about them.

They couldn’t accept the fact that I might have been OK with it. I cried my eyes out and kicked and screamed and said, ‘Why?’ and all the things you do when you find out. A few days later I was fine but I still had to go to therapy. It was such a waste of time.
