Adam Levine accidentally hits fan with mic

Adam Levine was left apologizing to a fan at a Maroon 5 concert in Canada on Monday (16Mar15) when a microphone he hurled in a rage over sound issues bounced off the stage and into her face.

During the gig at Toronto's Air Canada Center, the Moves Like Jagger hitmaker became frustrated after a short power outage and in video obtained by TMZ.com, the singer throws the mic to the ground and watched as it hit fan Stephanie Green, who was seated in the front row.


Levine immediate ran over to check on Green and apologized for causing injury to her forehead.


He told the crowd, "In my flustered state, I might have thrown my microphone on the ground and then it might have bounced off of the ground, into poor, sweet Stephanie's face. I felt so utterly terribly that I had perhaps wounded this young fan."


However, Green, who is now sporting a large bump where she was hit by the mic, is surprisingly upbeat after the incident, calling it "the best day".


In an interview with Toronto's CityNews, Green says, "My dream come true. I never thought in a million years this would happen to me.


"I was on stage, back and forth, freaking out," Green said. "He (Levine) hugged me… grabbed my face, held my hands! He kept apologizing. I said, 'I love you, I'm happy, I'm OK!'"


And Green isn't letting the injury deter her from going to future Maroon 5 shows, adding, "Once they announce the next concert, first thing... front row... anything can happen!"
