So, what’s the deal with [lastfm]Maroon 5[/lastfm]?? Their new album, Hands All Over, is coming out on September 21st, and they are about to begin what is sure to be a phenomenal tour – but their U.S. tour has surprisingly left one major state in the dry, desert dust.
To find out why they are opting out of an Arizona stop, read on after the jump.
In response to the highly controversial immigration law (SB 1070) the state of Arizona is set to implement just 2 days from now, several of our favorite musicians are stepping up to take a stand against what they feel to be a really bad decision.
The men of Maroon 5 are one of the newest additions to a movement that’s being called The Sound Strike. ([lastfm]Rage Against the Machine[/lastfm], [lastfm]Kanye West[/lastfm], [lastfm]Pitbull[/lastfm], and [lastfm]Nine Inch Nails [/lastfm]are just a few.)
The “Misery” men join a long list of musicians that are against SB 1070, and though they are upset that they are penalizing their Arizonian fans by not performing in the state, they are happy to kind of just follow our hearts, as cheesy as that sounds, and say, ‘Look, this is how I feel, so I’m going to do this.
