Adam Levine's recent marital scandals didn't slow down his band, Maroon 5. In the midst of the publicity fallout, Maroon 5 announced plans for a prolonged Las Vegas residency in 2023. The band will play 16 shows over the course of a few months for "M5LV The Residency."
Maroon 5's residency will kick off on Friday, March 24 and will continue through August. Some of the shows include A-list guests like H.E.R., Maren Morris, John Mulaney and Pitbull. Tickets for these shows went on sale on Monday, Oct. 1, and the organizers anticipated a rush to secure seats as soon as they were available. Many commenters made wry predictions about how Levine's scandal would impact the sales.

Unsurprisingly, this news was undercut by the recent slew of allegations against Levine on social media. The 43-year-old singer is married to 34-year-old Victoria's Secret model Behati Prinsloo, who is currently pregnant with their third child together. However, model Sumner Stroh posted a few videos on TikTok recently in which she accused Levine of "manipulating" her into having an affair with him.
Levine has denied this specific allegation, but did not claim total innocence. After Stroh's videos went public, at least four other women claimed to have received flirty or sexually explicit messages from Levine. In some cases, screenshots of the intimate messages were released. Levine finally addressed these stories in a public statement on Instagram last week.
"A lot is being said about me right now and I want to clear the air," he wrote. "I used poor judgement in speaking with anyone other than my wife in ANY kind of flirtatious manner. I did not have an affair, nevertheless, I crossed the line during a regrettable period of my life."
"I have addressed that and taken proactive steps to remedy this with my family," Levine continued. "My wife and my family is all I care about in this world. To be this naive and stupid enough to risk the only thing that truly matters to me was my greatest mistake I could ever make. I will never make it again. I take full responsibility. We will get through it and we will get through it together."
