Maroon 5: Show Goes On
135
There's a saying in the entertainment business that "the show must go on" and last weekend, Maroon 5 took that to heart, reports NMC. At a concert in Grand Prairie, Texas, singer Adam Levine took the stage and told the audience that earlier that day he'd fractured his sternum in an accident backstage. According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Levine even lifted his shirt to show the crowd his bandage. Levine said, "If I can't move around much, I wanted you to know why." The Maroon 5 frontman held his own for about an hour before announcing that he couldn't continue due to the pain. The band finished up the show with a cover of AC/DC's "Highway To Hell."

    i dont really like maroon five that much but if they like ac/dc then i have gained a lot more respect for them. I also agree with mattypretends they're obviously fairly talented musicians and they have good taste to cover an ac/dc song so why the *** do they write such shitty mainstream pop rock?

    Yea, Grand Prairie, Texas is kinda small though...only like 150,000 people. I say small 'cause Dallas is 5 miles East, and Fort Worth about 10 miles West.

    Go Marron 5! I think thats awsome when a band can just do stuff like that for their fans, I think I just gained a little more respect for them, keep it up guys!=)

    Something I don't get is that I know for a fact that Adam Levine and that other guy who plays guitar are good musicians...thw whole band is....so why do they choose to play such blatently poppy ****?? If they're covering ACDC thats a sign they want to rock out....drop the dopely name and image and reinvent yerself!

    I'll never understand people's taste in music these days... You hate Dashboard because they "cry" too much, and now you say Maroon 5 is cool? Well yeah, anyhoo, I don't like them, but I've got nothing against them. What he did was cool though.

    man i thought they would be gone in no time if youre wondering why i said that, none of the grammy award winners for "best new artist" have done anything since they won the grammy and have dissappeared, that is usually what happens.

    its good to see a mainstream pop band deal with problems like that by themselves. but if it was asshlee simpson there would be a whole episode of her stupid TV show about it. good for maroon 5.
