Adam Levine apologises for ‘unprofessional’ Maroon 5 gig branded ‘bulls***’ by fans: ‘I let things get to me’

Maroon 5 singer Adam Levine has apologised after appearing “bored” during a concert in Chile.

The frontman posted a lengthy Instagram video explaining why he left so many fans disappointed by his “unprofessional behaviour” at the Vina del Mar festival.

“I am so excited and passionate about concerts and about being my best, and about the band being our best,” he said, adding: “Performing, I take so seriously – sometimes too seriously – and to be totally frank, there were some things holding me back sonically last night and I let them get to me and it impacted how I was behaving on stage, which was unprofessional and I apologise for that.”

He continued: “Sometimes when those technical problems take place, I zero in and focus as much as I can on singing because I feel like that will be the best way to put this thing out on TV for 60 million people, which was what that show was last night.

“I wanted to sound good number one, and I wanted to look good and feel good number two, because if it doesn’t sound good, what’s the point? I struggled a lot and sometimes it’s really hard for me to mask the struggle and for that, I did let you guys down.”
