Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine said in an interview Thursday with “Entertainment Tonight” that the decision to perform at Super Bowl LIII was not something he took lightly.
“I spoke to many people,” he said, “most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt.”
Maroon 5 letting Super Bowl show speak for itself
Although the Zac Brown Band won’t be taking the stage this weekend, the group does have some big things on the horizon, including “The Owl Tour,” which kicks off May 25 in Indianapolis and an upcoming album. Tickets for the tour goes on sale February 8 on its website.
Brown said the album, which will be the band’s seventh studio release, will touch on some of his recent life changes, including separating from his wife of 12 years.
“Yeah, there’s some really personal songs on here,” Brown said. “Sometimes life can be challenging in facing things that are hard, and music has always been my therapy. It’s been my way to make it through a lot of things so I’m blessed to be able to do that. You always get to hear about our lives in the music that we put out — lots of diversity on this album.”
Even though he won’t be on the Super Bowl stage this time, Brown will be at the game Sunday, and he’s got a sweet spot for both teams.
“I would love to see the Rams and the young energy as they come to be able to topple the real champions,” the singer said, “but I also love to see an undeniable champion that has not been dethroned and performing on that level.”
