1. Maroon 5 - September 1, 2014
It breaks my heart to know that I will be shipped off to college right before one of my favorite bands comes to play in my city for FREE! I am sure I don’t need to make introductions but just for the sake of the format, Maroon 5 is one of the most popular bands of the new millennium with a mix of pop and rock sound. Their most popular singles include ‘She Will Be Loved’, ‘Makes Me Wonder’, ‘Payphone’ and most recently ‘Maps’. Just make sure to show up early because their fan base is huge and most likely people are going to camp out! This may actually be one of the most successful free concerts in New York City.
