Maroon 5 set to ring in New Year with two Las Vegas shows

Ready for New Year’s Eve? Maroon 5 is. The three-time Grammy Award-winning pop band returns to Las Vegas for its fourth consecutive New Year’s weekend performances at Mandalay Bay Events Center on Wednesday, Dec. 30, and Thursday, Dec. 31. The shows are the highlight of Mandalay Bay’s annual “Paint the Town Gold” resort-wide celebration.

The Los Angeles-based band, known as Kara’s Flowers when it formed in 1994, won its first Grammy as Best New Artist of 2005 and went on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide. The band’s hybrid rock and R&B sound came on the scene with its first single, “Harder to Breathe.”

Maroon 5’s releases have gone gold and platinum in more than 35 countries. In 2010, the band debuted its third studio album, “Hands All Over,” which featured the group's chart-topping smash single “Moves Like Jagger.” The song has since gone on to become one of the best-selling singles of all time.

The group’s latest release, “V,” debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top 200 chart and features the hit singles “Maps,” “Animals” and “Sugar.”

Tickets start at $99.50 and go on sale on Friday, July 17.
