I can still remember the day I first heard Maroon 5.

My college roommate Tim had just made a run to Target, and back in the day they used to have those end-caps in the music section where they'd highlight "Artists You Should Know" and would sell their CD's for $5. Well that day he returned with three new discs: Puddle of Mudd, Hoobastank and Maroon 5.

Back in '02, I was way more into rock so I was more excited to listen to the grundgy sounds of Wes Scantlin's PoM because their hit "Control" was all the rage at the time. But Tim insisted we listen to Maroon 5 first.

Needless to say, I was hooked after the first track! Adam Levine just had a different sound to him and the whole album "Songs About Jane" was great from the first track "Harder to Breathe" to its very last. All of them were hits in my mind, and most of them got some heavy airplay on the radio as well.

That's why I'm excited to share the news that Maroon 5 will be coming to Minnesota next fall with their Red Pill Blues tour on September 18!

Tickets go on sale to the general public on November 4 at 10 a.m. local time with presales as early as October 30 – Ticketmaster has those details HERE.

Prices range from $46.50 to $146.50.

Opening for Maroon 5 will be Julia Michaels, who appears on their recently released song "Help Me Out."

The band's upcoming sixth studio album Red Pill Blues comes out November 3.
