2013 Honda Civic Tour Featuring Maroon 5 is Best-Selling Tour in Concert's 12-year History
With a month left before the start of the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, this year's trek has already sold more tickets than any other in the Civic Tour's history, with multiple sell-out venues. Upon achieving this milestone, Honda and Maroon 5 are giving fans a chance to win a customized and autographed Maroon 5 Honda Civic Si Coupe and Honda CBR250R motorcycle. Both the car and motorcyle were designed by the LA quintet with their signature color scheme, each making a clean yet bold statement.
"The goal of the custom Civic and motocycle was to capture the Maroon 5 iconography that expresses both the band's essence and live experience and channel it into a custom design," said frontman Adam Levine.
Details on the custom Civic include a race-inspired exterior, Honda Factory Performance® body kit, Adam Levine and James Valentine signatures on the passenger door and a large "5" hood graphic. The Civic is outfitted with custom painted Honda Factory Performance® wheels that alternate between red and black.
The sleek motorcycle design was born out of the GRAMMY-winning pop-rock outfit's collective imagination. With custom graphics and wheels, the motorcycle gives the impression that it's moving fast even while remaining still.
Honda Civic Tour is also giving Maroon 5 fans a chance to attend two sold out Southern California concerts courtesy of Honda Financial Services. You can register for a chance to win the trip by visiting Honda.us/HFSGrad through Sunday, September 22, 2013 at 11:59pm ET.

About Maroon 5
Capturing their first of three Grammy Awards as "Best New Artist" of 2005 and going on to sell more than 17 million albums worldwide, Maroon 5's releases have gone gold and platinum in over 35 countries. The band won over fans and critics alike with the hybrid rock/R&B sound they introduced on their debut album, Songs About Jane and their double platinum album, It Won't be Soon Before Long, which included hits like "Makes Me Wonder" and "If I Never See your Face Again." In 2010, Maroon 5 released their third studio album, Hands All Over, which was certified platinum. The collection featured two hit singles including the Hot AC smash "Misery" and the anthemic "Moves Like Jagger," which climbed to the #1 spot on the Top 40 and Hot AC charts, as well as claiming the #1 spot on the Billboard Hot 100. "Moves Like Jagger" was also one of the best selling singles of 2011 with sales of 8.5 million copies worldwide. With the success of the track on the Hot 100 chart, Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine also notably became the first artist in the chart's 53-year history to reach #1 as part of a group, while entering the Top 10 at the same time as a soloist, as he was featured on and co-wrote Gym Class Heroes' top single, "Stereo Hearts." Maroon 5's latest album Overexposed has quickly reinforced the group's status as a powerhouse in popular music with all of the collection's singles quickly rising to the top of the charts. The third single off of the album, "Daylight," claimed the # 1 spot on both Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts. In the process, the band set a record for the most #1's (six in total) by a group in the Top 40 chart's 20-year history. Maroon 5's latest hit is "Love Somebody."
In addition to his work with Maroon 5, Adam Levine has returned for the fourth season as a coach on the #1 NBC hit series The Voice. Adam also recently made his small screen acting debut on the new 2012 season of the hit FX drama American Horror Story, and has landed a lead role in the major motion picture film, Can A Song Save Your Life from director John Carney.
