Three-time Grammy Award-winning multi-Platinum band Maroon 5 has announced dates for their upcoming 2020 U.S. tour produced by Live Nation.

Meghan Trainor will appear on all show dates.

The band's tour announcement follows the debut of its most recent single, "Memories" (222 Records/ Interscope Records). The release of "Memories" marks the first new music from the Los Angeles band since the release of its global anthem "Girls Like You."
Produced by Adam Levine and The Monsters & Strangerz and executive produced by Jacob "J Kash" Hindlin, "Memories" marks a moment of creative and personal progression for Maroon 5. The minimalist ballad starkly pairs a lilting clean guitar with chantable and evocative lyrics from Levine. In addition to representing another sonic side, it tackles uncharted subject matter for the group – namely loss – but from a different angle.
Following its release, "Memories" quickly claimed Maroon 5's 22nd appearance on Billboard Hot 100's Top 40. The track is currently holding at peak position No. 4 on Billboard Hot 100 chart, their 10th Top 5, and their 12th Top 10 this decade (that includes at least one new song sent into the Top 10 each year since 2011). The track just reached No. 1 on Billboard Hot AC chart, the group’s 14th No. 1, which is the most by any act. The David Dobkin-directed music video has garnered over 185 million views on YouTube, pushing the band’s video catalog to 12 billion views across all official channels on YouTube.
Trainor will release her anticipated third studio album, titled “Treat Myself,” Jan. 31 on Epic Records.
