The Grammy-winning band announced Monday April 1, 2013 that they will headline the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off Aug. 1 in St. Louis and will feature Kelly Clarkson.

Maroon 5 says its working on a new album, but before that the pop-rockers will launch a summer tour that finds the fivesome playing outdoors.

The Grammy-winning band will headline the 2013 Honda Civic Tour, which kicks off Aug. 1 in St. Louis and makes a stop Aug. 6 at First Niagara Pavilion in Burgettstown. The show also will feature Kelly Clarkson and Rozzi Crane.

“I think the live outdoor kind of summer vibe is always different than the indoor arena tour because there's less emphasis on production and more on live music,” frontman Adam Levine said. “It's kind of the purist form of a tour ‘cause there's not too many bells and whistles.”

The 31-date tour wraps Oct. 5 in San Diego.

Levine says he and his bandmates are riding high off the success of last year's “Overexposed,” their fourth album that has achieved platinum status. It features the popular hits “Payphone,” “One More Night” and “Daylight.”

“It's so amazing to have an album people connect with and embrace. It's a dream come true. It's hard to believe to have lighting strike twice and three times and four times,” he said. “We're having a moment. A good moment.”

He also says the group is working on the follow-up to that album: “We're just getting started. We've got some great songs in the can.”

Admission to the 7 p.m. show is $19.50 to $93.50 and tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. April 6.
