Maroon 5 is an American Rock Band from Los Angeles, California. The band originally formed in 1995 while the guys were still in High School under the name “Kara’s Flowers”. The band consist of; vocalist and rhythm guitarist Adam Levine, keyboardist Jesse Carmichael, bass guitarist Mickey Madden, and drummer Ryan Dusick. In 2001 they reformed and went a different direction musically and added guitarist James Valentine and changed the name to Maroon 5; and the boys have been making hit songs ever since.
“Hands All Over” is Maroon 5’s highly anticipated 3rd Studio Album and was produced by Studio Legend Robert John "Mutt" Lange (AC/DC, Def Leppard, The Cars). “Hands All Over” is a killer hybrid of rock, pop, funk and R&B. The tour will feature a rotating group of special guests including Owl City, Guster, Kris Allen, VV Brown and Ry Cuming. For the Tulsa show at the BOK Center, Ry Cuming is the special guest along with One Republic as the opening act.
The following is taken from Maroon 5’s Press release for their 2010 tour:
Maroon 5 began writing the songs that appear on Hands All Over after winding down from a world tour in support of their 2007 studio release It Won’t Be Soon Before Long. Several months later, the band received a phone call from Lange, who had heard that the band were beginning to write a new album, and expressed an interest in producing it.
“We didn’t even talk to anyone else,” Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s frontman says. “Mutt is undeniably one of the most successful producers who’s ever lived.”
Jesse Carmichael, the band’s keyboardist, added, “Mutt really helped us play to the best of our ability. And it drove us to be bigger and better than ever.”
The result is Hands All Over, a monumental record chock full of buoyant, unforgettable melodies. Recorded at Lange’s Switzerland studio, the members of Maroon 5 locked themselves in the mountains to patiently craft their latest effort. Starting with the hard-rocking title track, the album’s 15 tracks take several intoxicating twists and turns including such compositions as “Out of Goodbyes,” a stunning country ballad infused with musical and vocal contributions from Nashville chart-toppers Lady Antebellum. Long-time fans will get a thrill out of “Misery,” with its funky guitars and high-stepping melody, as well as the propulsive “Stutter,” melody rich “Give A Little More” and “Don’t Know Much About That,” which professes a classic soulful vibe.
With hit songs like “This Love”, “Harder to Breathe”, “Makes Me Wonder” and “If I Never See Your Face Again”, “Hands All Over” is sure to please long time fans and newcomers alike. Join Maroon 5 this Tuesday night as they hit the stage and leave us with a night to remember.
