Maroon 5 fan surprised with gig tickets

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine thrilled a fan with Down syndrome by joining him for a meet-and-greet session backstage at a gig this week (beg02Mar15).

Christopher Warner, a 10 year old from Maryland, came to the attention of the band's management team after a teacher posted a video on YouTube.com showing the youngster singing a compilation of the group's tracks.


Bosses at local radio station HOT 99.5 contacted the band's record label, and Warner was offered tickets to Maroon 5's concert at the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C. on Monday (02Mar15).


He was also offered a meet-and-greet session with the musicians, and he became so excited backstage that he had to lie down, prompting Levine and his bandmates to lie on the floor alongside to soothe him.


Warner's teacher, Avery Stanert says, "He has just been fascinated with Maroon 5 and especially Adam Levine... They (radio station bosses) arranged for backstage passes and tickets. They immediately called the record label and worked it all out."
