You can add Maroon 5 to your summer concert calendar.
The three-time Grammy-winning band has announced a 2020 tour that on June 18 will roll into Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls.
The band’s tour announcement follows the debut of their most recent single, “Memories,” notes a news release from event promoter Live Nation.
Says the release:
The release of “Memories” marks the first new music from the Los Angeles band since the release of their global anthem “Girls Like You.” Produced by Adam Levine and The Monsters & Strangerz and Executive Produced by Jacob “J Kash” Hindlin, “Memories” marks a moment of creative and personal progression for the musicians. The minimalist ballad starkly pairs a lilting clean guitar with chantable and evocative lyrics from Levine. In addition to representing another sonic side, it tackles uncharted subject matter for the group— namely loss—but from a different angle.
Pop star Meghan Trainor is slated to be the opening act on on all the tour’s dates.
Here’s more on both artists, from the release:
