What pop bands do: Maroon 5 returning to Las Vegas for New Year’s shows


Live Nation Las Vegas Maroon 5 doesn’t have a regular Las Vegas residency — except when New Year’s Eve rolls around.

Once again, the band has announced a series of New Year’s shows at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Sin City.  The shows are December 30 and December 31, and tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, September 29 at 10 a.m. PST at AXS.com.

If you’re an American Express Card member, an M Life Rewards member, or an AXS customer, you’ll can get access to ticket pre-sales this coming Tuesday and Wednesday.

Last year, Maroon 5 guitarist James Valentine told ABC Radio why the band continues to return to Las Vegas year after year for New Year’s.  “It’s become really fun because we bring a lot of our friends out from LA and we turn it into our own sorta party,” he explained. 

Valentine goes on: “We’re done performing before midnight actually strikes, so then we usually go up and celebrate in the hotel with all of our friends, it’s become just a yearly thing..  Everybody’s like, ‘Oh, can we come back out to New Year’s this year? [Can you] put us on the list?’ ‘Absolutely!'”

Maroon 5 is expected to release a new album in November.  Their current single, “What Lovers Do,” is out now; the video, described as a “larger-than-life cinematic affair,” is coming soon.
