Adam Levine Apologizes For Poor Chile Show After Suffering Heavy Backlash
Adam Levine Apologizes Chile Show: Adam Levine has publicly apologized to his fans in Chile for what is best described as a disrespectful and frustrating performance by the band, Maroon 5.
Maroon 5 were booked to perform at the Latin festival, called the Viña del Mar International Song Festival on Thursday night.
The leadman for the band, who is Adam Levine was described as cold and unreceptive. It was almost as though he didn’t want to be there.
According to CHV Noticias reports, Levine delivered a “low energy” performance while on stage.
He was also seen to be visibly frustrated, in another clip that surfaced online. The 40-year-old could be heard muttering,
“That was a TV show. That was not a concert.”
Fans were not going to take that one sitting. They came out in their droves to critique his performance on social media. One tweeted,
“I just saw #Maroon5 show in the latin festival and it was SO bad d**n, and then i saw how he insulted the organization and the city? Like what?? I feel bad for the latin people, he was so disrespectful,” one person tweeted.
@maroon5 love your music but your show in Viña del Mar was disrespectful to every fan who paid and waited to see you live. Very frustrating. Hope u make up to them tomorrow in Santiago #Maroon5 #Maroon5EnChile.
For some others, it was a perfect opportunity to poke fun at the singer.
He, however, took to his Instastories to apologize for the horrible performance as well as his unprofessional behavior.
“I’d really like to address reactions to the concert and kind of explain myself because I feel like you guys deserve that,” Levine stated in the clip. “You know, being in a band you play a lot of shows and I am so passionate and excited about concerts and about being my best and about the band being our best, and being our best for you guys, honestly, you know. Performing I take so seriously. Sometimes too seriously.”
“And to be totally frank, there were some things holding me back sonically last night,” he continued. “And I let them get to me, and it impacted how I was behaving on stage, which was unprofessional and I apologize for that.”
“I struggled a lot and sometimes it’s really hard for me to mask the struggle. For that, I did let you guys down and I apologize,” he said, adding that it’s “one show of many” and that they adore their fans in Chile.
“Last night wasn’t our best and, for that, all I can say is that I’m really sorry,” he concluded.
He reiterated that he always wants to be the best and represent the band in the best way possible.
We can assume that he made up for the performance with their second booked gig in Santiago, Chile, on Friday night. Fans were more receptive to this performance, evidenced by their largely positive comments.
Levine quit ‘The Voice’, where he was a judge for 16 seasons, to focus on his music and touring.
We wish him all the best.
