TERRIBLE SOUNDS ENGINEERING - TOO MUCH BASS!
We saw them at Fenway last night, and everything about the concert was awesome - setlist was perfect, Adam's voice and engagement with the audience, etc. But OMG - the bass was so overdriven that you couldn't even hear the vocals on some songs, couldn't hear the instruments, etc. In seeing these reviews, I cannot believe they subject their fans (like me and my wife) to one concert after another without fixing this crazytown audio engineering. We've been to LOTS of concerts and have felt our chests vibrate from the bass many times, but this wasn't that. It was that x1,000 at any other "normal" concert. And trust me, we're not being picky or audiophiles. All the smartphone recordings you see posted don't have the mic range to pick up bass that deep, so you won't hear it when your friends post clips. But to be there and experience it in person - OMG. Just ruined the enjoyment of so many songs. The opening act was intolerable due to this. ADAM AND MAROON 5, WE LOVE YOU BUT GET THIS FIXED!!

THE RED PILL BLUES TOUR
Maroon 5 have electric energy and talent and this is not the venue to see them in. For a little more than an hour and a half, they perform song after song and the audience sings along. The acoustics in this venue are horrible and at times the bass drowned out Adams falsetta. As the band members are introduced, one could not hear their names. The screens are for those seated facing the stage and for those of us in the upper part of the arena, the videos looked spliced. I want to see them again, in a smaller venue, with better acoustics, and on a personal note, want them to "strip it down" and sing, "Lost Stars." Adams choreographer has him performing along a Roman numeral 5, to meet the needs of the crowd, but for those in the "heavens" the closest one gets to having an intimate experience is on a screen. As one descends the stairs, security pushes the crowd on, when all we want is a closer view.

SOUND PROBLEMS IN UNITED CENTER?
Maroon 5 was very nice and interactive with the audience. Songs were good choices. The problem was with the sound system. So much bass that I couldn't hear the music. Best songs were those at the end with only the acoustic guitar....Lost Stars is my favorite and it sounded great... Love Adam Levine...concert was disappointing because of sound...even the warm up person ....Julia...had this awful sound set up.

REVIEW OF MAROON 5 @ SPRINT CENTRE IN KANSAS CITY, MO
Let me start of with I love Maroon 5 and the majority of their songs. The reason for the mediocre rating is the sound system. The bass was so loud you could barely hear Adam Levine's voice. I don't know if it is the venue or the sound manager but I would say the majority of their songs sound better from the studio than live. It was just seemed out of sync and rushed , as well.

TOO MUCH BASE
We saw Maroon 5 at the White River Amphitheatre 8/10/21. Though we sat in reserved seating left of stage, section 115, the view was good. They played a nice set and Adam Levine was quite entertaining, but the problem was WAY TOO MUCH BASS. It drowned out the vocals and did not deliver the quality expected of a band like this. The acoustic guitar parts with singing were best because we could follow the vocals. Overall, it was a nice time and though the stage set was a bit overdone, the lights were nice and the show was high energy. It was enjoyable to get back to a concert given the pandemic and year delay of our tickets. I think the band was happy about being back onstage.

HARD TO UNDERSTAND
I like Maroon 5 & this was my second time seeing them. Adam messed up on two songs but stopped the songs and made fun of himself which was pretty cool. The Crowd was pumped up and it transferred to the band who put on a good show. The light show and set were fine but the vocals were drowned out by the bass. I don't mind 'feeling' it from time to time, but I also want to hear Adam and the other instruments. If I didn't know the songs the show would have received 1-star. Good set list. 1:45 show length.
