On Friday night, the Maroon 5 concert streamed live on amexeverydaylive.com from the Bowery Ballroom in NYC.
The band opened with “One More Night.” a single from their album Overexposed. The intro was a brilliant, stripped down version of the song’s hook.
Adam Levine looked very summer in his red palm tree print button down shirt. He commented on the intimate setting of the Bowery as opposed to a large concert arena.
He also expressed his thoughts on the live streaming element of the show. “You can either not do anything or make some big ass mistakes,” Adam said to the crowd. “Just rest assured, it will be filmed.”
The band followed Adam’s commentary with a smooth rendition of “Sunday Morning,” and afterward, a stellar performance of the song “Makes Me Wonder.”
At one point during the concert, Adam spoke to the fans watching from home.
“For those of you watching on the internet, I hope you’re having fun out there,” he began. “But, of course, you’re not having as much fun as we are,” he continued as the people in the audience cheered.
The band then proceeded to perform their new single “Maps” from their upcoming album V.
“Be gentle, because it’s our first time,” Adam warned.
Adam Levine and the lead guitarist decided be silly on stage and started playing “Love Somebody” with the wrong guitar chords.
“So now it’s out of our system,” Adam laughed.
Of course, the band performed the song properly right after, which was absolutely wonderful.
The band also performed “Stereo Hearts” and “Moves Like Jagger.”
Throughout the evening, fans were encouraged to tweet the hashtag #AmexEverydayLIVE to get Maroon 5 to do an encore.
They, did, and it was spectacular.
Before that moment, I’d never heard “She Will Be Loved” performed live. Adams vocals were simply beautiful.
They closed the show with “Daylight,” another single from Overexposed.
I honestly wish I’d been able to see the concert live. The concert looked like a blast from my computer screen, and I’m sure audience members had an awesome night with Maroon 5 at the Bowery.
