Love or hate Adam Levine and his smug television appearances (he just landed a semi-autobiographical single-camera sitcom on NBC), there's no denying Maroon 5 makes incredibly catchy, stuck-in-your-brain-all-day pop music. "Moves Like Jagger," for example, is now ranked as one of the best-selling singles worldwide with a ticker of nearly nine million copies sold. Maroon 5 hits the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater this week on their Honda Civic tour (we sense some heavy marketing influence here), with support from the platinum-piped Kelly Clarkson. Several massive venues on their circuit have already sold out—so if hearing Maroon 5 every time you turn on the radio just ain't enough, get your tickets now.
