Adam Levine‘s owning his lackluster performance at a huge festival in Chile, saying he acted unprofessionally and struggled on stage … and apologized to everyone in the crowd.
The Maroon 5 frontman and the band were widely criticized for their set during the country’s Viña del Mar Festival Thursday, which was broadcast live on TV. Adam was singled out … ripped for looking disinterested and cold, and was caught on video afterward complaining … “That was a TV show … that was not a concert.”
Levine’s now offering up an explanation, saying he was held back “sonically” — his sound just wasn’t right — and it got in his head. He says the crappy performance wasn’t a dig at the group’s Chilean fans … adding he loves performing in South America.
Unclear if the apology will be enough for the folks in Chile — they were pretty pissed, — but Adam promises it won’t happen again.
Maroon 5 has a gig in Santiago and Adam promises it will be the best of the tour … saying the band is ready to kick some major ass!
