Maroon 5 Launch Radio Station Tonight With Live Broadcast
Says Maroon 5's Adam Levine, "Our fans have always been there for us. And our station, Maroon 5 Radio, is a new way for us to let them inside our world. We're starting the station off with a concert for a great cause (The Garden of Dreams Foundation). We just can't wait to play, and we invite anyone outside NYC to join us in their homes on Fuse, as well as the iheartradio platform."
The launch of Maroon 5 Radio is timed to support the band's North American summer tour and the forthcoming release of Hands All Over, Maroon 5's long awaited third studio album.
