Teen Choice Awards 2017
Before joking about the sixth album being their last, Maroon 5 took the stage to accept the “Decade Award.” Levine, along with keyboardist and rhythm guitarist Jesse Carmichael, bassist Mickey Madden, lead guitarist James Valentine, drummer Matt Flynn, and keyboardist PJ Morton, were proud to celebrate their advancements in the music industry over the past 10 years. The band has five multi-platinum studio albums, so far. They have sold over 20 million albums and 70 million singles worldwide. They are one of the top touring acts in today’s popular music, and continue to be a hit worldwide. This awards ceremony in particular honors the year’s top names in music, television, film, comedy, and fashion. Teens select the category winners themselves, revealing which artists today’s youth are raving about. “Thank you guys. I’m not gonna lie: I’m 38 years old. We look really good for 38. We’re not teens, but the fact that teenagers, all of you, can appreciate what we do after all this time… It’s so crazy that we’re still doing this,” said Levine.
Maroon 5’s Tour in 2017
Maroon 5 just wrapped up their two-year tour, which ended in March 2017. Now, the band members are enjoying some good old down time from their busy tour life. Levine is enjoying year two of his role as a father for the first time (he and his wife Behati Prinsloo Levine welcomed their daughter Dusty Rose), and working as a coach of NBC’s The Voice. He will be back next month, when the music competition’s 13th season premieres.
