Senior Cruise Director John Heald took the stage around 4 p.m. to welcome the crowd and warm up 4,000 fans. Heald told the crowd that Galveston is one of Maroon 5’s most memorable performances in their career because “the Texas crowd shows up and shows up strong.”

With the backdrop of Carnival Magic, Maroon 5 opened the show with their chart-topping single “Moves Like Jagger,” followed by some of their classics and some new songs from their latest album, “Hands All Over.”

The performance lasted about 75 minutes and had everyone singing word for word. Their encore, “She Will Be Loved,” brought the crowd to a roar.

While in Galveston, Maroon 5 was welcomed aboard Carnival’s new ship, including a navigational bridge tour, and checked out the Caribbean-inspired Red Frog Pub.

Carnival Magic is home-ported in Galveston, Texas, offering cruise passengers alternating 7-night Eastern and Western Caribbean sailings.
