Maroon 5 Lands In Hot Water After Chilean Music Festival
The Viña del Mar International Song Festival is a music festival held annually in the 3rd week of February in Viña del Mar, Chile. And it’s one of the largest and oldest music festivals in Latin America with the first festival dating back to the 1960s. The festival includes invited artists. And is broadcasted over live TV. And this year was no different. However, the innocent event ended up in the tabloids because of one reason only: Maroon 5.
One of the artists to perform at the music festival was the band, Maroon 5. But their performance was not as well-received as they had hoped. The audience claimed Adam Levine, lead singer, appeared “distracted and uncomfortable” throughout their set. And Santiago’s La Tercera newspaper even called the star, “cold, reluctant and preoccupied.”
But soon enough, Maroon 5 started trending at #1 on social media and TV viewers started criticizing the performance.
#Maroon5 is trending worldwide. Thought something happened but turns out, they just finished performing at a festival in Chile and sucked so bad that it’s now trending worldwide on Twitter. Can’t wait for videos. Lol.

#Maroon5 So yeah, maroon 5 came to Chile to perform in one of the most prestigious festival of LATAM, and their show was bullshit. Adam's voice was awful, the whole band was reluctant and bored. They didn't even say goodbye to their public. I'm so disappointed. ++++++

Can y'all believe #Maroon5 just did the shittiest show ever? They were late and Adam Levine not only did sing off-key and reluctantly but also stormed out cussing everyone out bc he found out it was a televised thing. Fuck him. I knew he was a dick but didn't know to what extent.

People who see #Maroon5 and 'Adam Levine' trending and have no idea why, I'll let you know. Maroon 5 is at #Vina2020 here in Chile and the show is really shitty! Adam sounds awful and he doesn't have the moves like Jagger at all ☹ We are wondering what happened to him

Adam Levine Apologises For “Unprofessional” Concert
Adam Levine took to his Instagram story to apologize to fans and the audience of the music festival for his “unprofessional” performance.
And he reportedly said, “To be totally frank there were some things holding me back last night and I let them get to me. And it impacted how I was behaving on stage, which is unprofessional and I apologize for that.” He also blamed technical difficulties for their subpar performance.
“I struggled a lot and sometimes it’s really for me to mask the struggle. For that, I let you guys down and I apologize,” he shared.
But struggle or not, the fans deserve an apology when they’ve come a long way to see their favorite stars and the performance just isn’t worth it. The band will resume their South America tour now and claims to “completely destroy” their next show.
And for the sake of their fans and Maroon 5’s reputation, we hope they do.
