Fan arrested at Maroon 5 concert after storming the stage

The fans had flocked in their thousands to watch Maroon 5 perform in Toronto on Thursday night.

But for one woman that wasn’t enough – she wanted to get up close and personal with her idol, Adam Levine.

The woman was arrested after storming the stage and pursuing the singer, as he retreated along a catwalk set out into the crowd.

According to TMZ the 22-year-old was later arrested for public mischief and released on bail.

Indeed it was reported last week that Maroon 5 will headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in 2019.

The Sugar rockers – comprised of Levine, Jesse Carmichael, Mickey Madden, James Valentine, Matt Flynn, PJ Morton, and Sam Farrar – are said to be the act topping the bill at next year’s Super Bowl, which will take place in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3rd, 2019.

Two sources confirmed the news to Variety magazine, although the band have not yet commented on the news, and a representative for the NFL told the publication it’s ‘tradition to speculate’ about acts.

The rep said: ‘It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.’

If the She Will Be Loved stars do take to the iconic stage to perform in front of millions across the globe, they will follow in the footsteps of this year’s performer Justin Timberlake, as well as the likes of Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé, who have all graced the stage in recent years.
