Maroon 5 and Kelly Clarkson-Fall might be approaching but nothing will keep you from feeling as warm within as the 12th annual Honda Civic Tour far-fetched night of music, headlining Maroon 5 with special guest Kelly Clarkson. The Grammy-award winning quintet pop rockers Maroon 5 fronted by Adam Levine has been active in making number one hits since their debut album "Songs About Jane" released in 2002 spawning internationally famed singles "This Love", "Harder to Breathe" and "She Will Be Loved". With their latest album Overexposed" (2012), the band brought in the no. 1 single on UK Singles Chart and no. 2 on Billboard Hot 100 chart "Payphone" as well as the "One More Night" which topped the Billboard Hot 100 for 9 weeks. And let's not forget about Kelly Clarkson! After winning the first season of American Idol, Clarkson has been dubbed as "The Original American Idol" and also became the runner-up of World Idol. Earning multi-platinum albums, smash hit singles and innumerable inventory of awards seemed to be so natural for this American pop rocker. Her 5th album "Stronger" released in 2011 has produced international hits "Mr. Know It All" and "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)". "Miss Independent", "A Moment Like This" "Breakaway" and "Since U Been Gone" are also some of her greatest songs. With a line-up like that, you couldn't possibly ask for anything more!
