Stepping up the concert experience


The lights go out and cue the screaming, but wait. Where is the band? Fog comes out from what appears to clear stage floor and out from that floor comes world famous band Maroon 5. The band is touring with Rozzi Crane and Magic to promote their fifth album ‘V.’ No its not and actual “v,” its a roman numeral for “5.” The band states that this album is a combination of what they have been working toward all these years. Students who attended say that the concert experience is different from many others.

“The stage was different,” senior Robert Kadrich said, “but the band had a lot of energy and less of a bass sound like other concerts have.

The unique set up of the stage consisted of multiple flashing lights, moving light bars, a crystal clear stage, and a runway set up for up close audience interaction. Senior Amana Weisman had main floor seats and was ecstatic to see her man crush up close and a tad personal.

“I loved being in the front row,” Weisman said. “I got a set list and took some amazing photos. Plus I could have sworn Adam and I made eye contact.”

This concert was special for fans and for front man, Adam Levine’s, because it was his birthday.

“The fact that it was Adam Levine’s birthday just made the concert even more special,” Senior Brittany Setera said, “I’m just in love with him.”

For Levine’s birthday wish, he asked the audience to put their phones away while they sang their hit song, ‘She Will be Loved.’

“That was really cool,” sophomore Gianna Mazzella said. “That experience was really special to me.”

Giving a personal yet energetic concert feel is what makes these heart throbbing fans coming back each year for more. The band hopes to keep finding new ways to make it a different experience to keeps the audience wowed.
