Maroon 5 wows Malaysian fans
By SHARMILLA GANESAN
SHAH ALAM: Chart-busting pop-rock band Maroon 5 certainly had the crowd "moving like Jagger" at its Overexposed Tour 2012 concert here Thursday night.
Back for their second gig in Malaysia, frontman Adam Levine and his bandmates James Valentine on guitar, Mickey Madden on bass, Matt Flynn on drums and PJ Morton on keyboard - had the 7,000-strong crowd eating out of their hands as they performed some of their biggest hits at the one-night-only event.
Kicking off the excitement for the night was Las Vegas-based alternative rock band The Cab, who set the mood for the main act with its unique and infectious brand of music.
When it was finally time for Maroon 5 to take the stage, the crowd went wild as Levine led off with a rousing rendition of Payphone.
As expected, the largely female crowd couldn't contain their screams of adoration as the handsome lead singer serenaded them with his distinctive vocals, with Harder To Breathe and This Love getting the biggest cheers.
The biggest applause, however, was reserved for the American band's smash hit, Moves Like Jagger, one of the best-selling singles of all time, which it performed with signature style and swagger, and ended the concert.
