R. City Will Join With Maroon 5 and Adam Levine For Upcoming Tour
It’s official. Maroon 5 announced Friday that their North American tour would begin next fall.
But their world tour will include Theron and Timothy Thomas of R. City – whose song “Locked Away” – features M5 lead singer Adam Levine
The 26-date tour of North America kicks off in San Antonio on September 3 and ends in Oakland, California October 16.
R. City, Tove Lo and Phases will join the group for #M5OnTheRoad next year.
The band will spend the 2016’s early months performing in Mexico and South America.
According to a press release, the band is still promoting their most recent album, “V,” featuring singles “Sugar,” “Maps” and “Feelings.” However, Maroon 5 is also rumored to be among the acts that could perform at the Super Bowl halftime show in February with Bruno Mars; artists typically use the marquee event to promote new music which could arrive before the tour starts.
R. City, also known as Rock City, is the home team duo from St. Thomas, consisting of brothers Theron “A.I.” and Timothy “Uptown AP” Thomas. They’ve gone from living in the projects in Charlotte Amalie to writing songs for artists like Rihanna, Nicki Minaj and Sean Kingston, but recently hit the top 10 with their won track, “Locked Away,” which features Levine and samples “Do That to Me One More Time” from Captain & Tennille.
Swedish singer Tove Lo opened for Katy Perry last year. The 28-year-old pop artist has hit the Top 40 charts in the U.S. three times with “Habits (Stay High),” “Talking Body” and “Heroes (We Could Be)” with Alesso.
