|Maroon 5 plays through the pain|

GRAND PRAIRIE - Opening act the Donnas had just finished another flawless rock set, and those in Saturday night's sellout crowd at Nokia Theatre were settling in. They'd procured their pizzas, picked up their souvenir T-shirts, and snapped cellphone pix of themselves and their friends. They were ready -- ready for their white-bread heroes, Los Angeles rock-funk-pop band Maroon 5. When the lights dimmed, the crowd rose to its feet, almost irrationally enthusiastic.
But it wasn't a typical rock-show opening. Singer Adam Levine announced that earlier in the day he'd had an accident backstage and fractured his sternum. He lifted his shirt to show the bandage.
"If I can't move around much, I wanted you to know why," Levine said.
He forged on. He strummed guitar during the Pulp Fiction opening instrumental. Warbled impressively through Shiver. He hardly needed to sing during the hit Harder to Breathe; everyone in the place was singing for him.F.

|It was very short. The lead singer was hurt and on pain medication. He only sang a few songs then left.|
|The performance was great with the songs that Adam sang (and the last 2 songs as well), but I think most folks at the concert would agree that we felt that we did not get our money's worth. For those that paid $55+ for tickets, I feel like the band should have either: 1) canceled the concert and offered an alternate date with the same tickets, or 2) discounted tickets for their next Dallas engagement. |
Again, given the circumstances, the performance was great, but an hour performance was a little short.
|I paid $165 per ticket, great seats but the show was to short... I would have rather them reschedule. It wasn't 100%..|
