New concerts announced include Maroon 5, Haunted Fest, Johnny Marr and more
Maroon 5 and its love-him-or-hate-him frontman Adam Levine are set to visit Nationwide Arena on March 11. Tickets are $29.50, $49.50, $79.50 and $125, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, Sept. 13, at ticketmaster.com. The Los Angeles rock band will be performing here in support of its fifth album, V, which finds the musicians chasing current trends like a high school outsider desperate to fit in. Still, the crew knows how to deliver a radio hook, which accounts, at least in part, for its surprising staying power.
Halloween 'tis the season for things that go bump in the night. This will include the beats when the inaugural Haunted Fest sets up shop at Battelle Hall in the Columbus Convention Center on Friday, Oct. 31, with electro-leaning dance acts Zeds Dead, A-Trak and Arty & Audien, among others. General admission tickets are $35, and VIP passes are $65, and both can be purchased at hauntedfest.com.
A couple new shows were also announced for the LC Pavilion. First up is Los Angeles hard-rock outfit In This Moment, which visits the venue alongside 12 Foot Ninja, Starset and 3 Pill Morning on Nov. 15. Tickets are $24, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 12, at ticketmaster.com. Next up is the Head and the Heart, which joins much-buzzed-over Wisconsin art-folk crew Phox for a concert on Dec. 11. Tickets are $27.50 in advance/$30 at the door, and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 12, at ticketmaster.com.
Former Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr headlines a round of Newport Music Hall announcements. Marr, who released his solo record The Messenger early in 2013, hits town for a concert on Nov. 22. Tickets are $15. Also making a trip to the venue is NYC singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson, who performs on Nov. 15. Tickets for that one are $20 in advance/$22 at the door. Tickets for both of these shows go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, Sept. 12, at ticketmaster.com.
