Music fans are a month away from Maroon 5's New Year's Eve shows at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, and if you haven't gotten your tickets yet, you're missing out on the best New Year's Eve concerts you could see. The Grammy Award-winning band always puts on a show, and there's no show bigger for them than their New Year's Eve celebration. Here are five reasons why you want to get your tickets now:
1) They're going to play all your favorite songs and then some
Maroon 5 concerts are different from other concerts, in that they don't just play their hits. Yes, your favorite songs and the singles from their new album Red Pill Blues will certainly be on the set list, but the band always puts together a running order that comprises as much of their catalog as possible. There will be at least one song that you haven't heard in a while and didn't realize that you missed. You'll hear a greater variety of music at these New Year's Eve concerts than you will anywhere else.

2) They're going to make full use of the stage
Some musical acts are great to listen to, but not so great live. Sometimes, you to go a concert only to find your favorite singer just sits in one place for the whole show, or that you unknowingly have the seat on the wrong end of the stage to see that amazing guitar solo. There's nothing to worry about when seeing Maroon 5 live. They are full of energy, running around the stage throughout the show, which ensures that everyone in the audience will have an opportunity to see Adam Levine and his bandmates up close and personal (even if you're looking at the monitors, which are incredibly well-operated). Between their stage presence and the setup at the Mandalay Bay Events Center, there's not a bad seat in the house.
3) No one is going to have more fun
This is an absolute fact. Maroon 5 concerts are some of the most high-energy in the business, with never a dull moment even between songs. Levine is a true showman who imbues those breaks with his sense of humor and ability to riff off the cuff. Even when the band is first taking the stage there's something going on. New Year's Eve is a time for celebrating and Maroon 5 is going to make these two concerts feel like two big parties. Then again, this is a band whose latest music video featured a giant Adam Levine, so there's proof that they know how to put on a big show.
4) There's always a surprise somewhere
No one knows specifically what Maroon 5 have planned for their Mandalay Bay Events Center shows, but the odds are good that the band has some kind of surprise up their sleeve to help ring in the New Year. They never put on the same show twice, even on the same tour; each concert feels significantly different. Whether it's dropping a ton of pink balloons on the crowd to help punctuate their closing number or shooting off a confetti cannon, there will be some kind of surprise or special effect that will make this not just a concert but an experience.
5) They'll make you part of the show
Maroon 5 have always included audience participation in their shows, and that includes New Year's Eve. Their concerts often include Adam Levine getting the audience to sing along with one of their hits, whether it's "She Will Be Loved" or "Daylight." As mentioned above, he talks with the audience between songs, and his bandmates engage the audience as they play. These concerts exemplify what New Year's Eve is meant to feel like. You don't need to go to a club to party; instead, go to see Maroon 5 and you will feel like you're part of the biggest, most fun party on the Las Vegas Strip. It'll be an evening that you'll always remember.
