So I went to Maroon 5 last Thursday. I know, I know I can hear you all now : "Wait! What Jess? We had absolutely no idea. It's not like you mentioned it a few dozen times." But I have some really good pictures and a video or four and I was literally inches from Adam Levine and he kinda sorta stared directly down my iPhone (and into my soul).
They sang every song I could have ever hoped for. Although I do wish they had left out the unnecessary cover of 'Get Lucky' and carried on with one of their own songs like 'Tickets' or 'Losing My Mind' but that's just me wanting to have heard them sing every song they've ever recorded. Impossible. My favourite performance was definitely the acoustic version of 'She Will Be Loved'. It's my favourite Maroon 5 song and the one I was looking forward to hearing live the most. Once they finished 'She Will Be Loved' I pushed my way to the back of the crowd and allowed myself to breathe again. One thing about concerts - the closer you are to the stage, the bitchier people get. If you're one of those bitchy 'not letting anyone pass me' kind of people will you please take a moment to reconsider your life? My brother went for a bottle of water and got stuck three rows behind cause some older guy with an attitude wouldn't let him pass. I thought I would die of dehydration. I didn't but you know..
Robin Thicke was pretty standard. I kinda sorta hate myself for slightly enjoying his set. He puts on a good show and the Italians next to me went bonkers for him. He still creeps me out. If you ever get a chance to see Maroon 5 live. Don't pass it up. One of the best concerts I've been to and trust me I've been to a LOT of concerts. It was refreshing to just stand there and really enjoy the music without been distracted by unnecessary stage production. Also, Adam Levine in the flesh beats everything and the way he flaunted himself around that stage? He's definitely aware of how much the ladies love him. His facial expressions were comical.
I have post concert sadness now. Been waiting for it since 2012 and it was over too fast. Oh well, my 12 year old self is very happy right now. Make sure you check more of the videos.
