Imaging Atlantic City as the “Entertainment Capital of the Jersey Shore” for the summer of 2015, this is the first of two concerts to be held on the beach this year. The second concert, featuring a country act, will be announced soon.
Last summer’s concerts with Lady Antebellum and Blake Shelton drew a combined 120,000 fans and offered a significant financial boast to the city’s economy.
Maroon 5 is a Los Angeles pop rock group fronted by Adam Levine, that have seen considerable chart and sales success over the past few years. Their most recent album, V, debuted atop the Billboard 200. The show will be one of only three the band will perform for the remainder of this year.
Maroon 5 has sold more than 27 million albums and 48 million singles worldwide. Levine is also well-known for his role as a judge on the TV reality talent show "The Voice".
Singer Nick Jonas, now emerging as a star in his solo career after years with the Jonas Brothers, is the special guest at the concert.
Matt McAndrew from Barnegat Light, Long Beach Island, opens the show. He was the runner-up on season 7 of The Voice last fall as part of Team Adam.
Even before the announcement of the acts involved, Jeff Guaracino, executive director of the Atlantic City Alliance, was estimating the two concerts will each draw crowds of 50,000 people.
