The Maine tickets - The Maine Tour

The Maine Schedule

The Maine is another one of the bands that got its break during 2007 on MySpace, not long after its inception. It was quite astonishing to see The Maine go from a band of every day American teenagers to signing a deal with a record label when the fans discovered them through social media. The Maine is a popular band to see live and will without a doubt be an incredible treat for audiences along its tour to enjoy. Its power pop sound will have most everyone dancing with smiles plenty, as The Maine helps to keep spirits high. Take a look at the schedule and tickets available through StubHub to see where you will dance to The Maine as the band plays on stage right before you.


About The Maine

The Maine formed in January of 2007 in Tempe, Arizona, which is quite a different state than the one used in its name. At the time, bassist Garrett Nickelson and drummer Patrick Kirch initiated the band's formation and brought on singer John O'Callaghan. John O'Callaghan did not have prior singing experience but managed to impress the band's rhythm section during auditions and was asked to join. The band also included Ryan and Alex Ross.

The band's first ever performance had quite the turnout with 600 fans eager to see The Maine play. It was quite a show and led to more followers on MySpace, which is considered to have played a huge role in getting The Maine attention and growing its fan base. The first release was an EP called Stay Up, Get Down and was followed by another EP titled The Way We Talk. Both of the EPs were released in 2007 and were used to entice its MySpace fans to keep coming back for more. The first album was released in 2008 and entitled, Can't Stop, Won't Stop, was followed by a holiday release, And a Happy New Year, in December. The second full-length album, Black & White, sold more than 20 thousand copies in the first week of its release. The band continued to grow and impress more and more fans.

After the initial lineup released Stay Up, Get Down, Ryan and Alex left the band and were replaced by Kennedy Brock and Jared Monaco. This lineup was the one that signed with Fearless Records, which is an independent, alternative-rock record label that was founded in the early 1990s by Bob Becker. The label is known for its early pop-punk and post-hardcore releases. Early on, the band toured with Good Charlotte and Boys Like Girls after the release of the first full-length album, which helped to broaden its fan base. It was not until 2010 that The Maine headlined its first tour. The tour was called An Evening with The Maine. The year after, The Maine took off on an international tour that took them to the Philippines and the United Kingdom.


The Mains Breakthrough

The Maine's third album, Pioneer, quickly reached the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 90. Having utilized the newness of MySpace and the perfect pairing with new independent bands, The Maine managed to jumpstart a successful career. The most recent album, Forever Halloween, was released in 2013. Similar to the release before, it made it to the Billboard 200. This time, they climbed to 39. The Maine sold over 10,000 copies of Forever Halloween in the first week of its release. The Maine is expected to release its fifth studio album in November 2014. The band has been on a few labels since Fearless. Some of those include: Rude Records, Warner Brothers, Sire, Action Theory and now is presently on Universal.


The Maine Trivia

The Maine's singer, John O'Callaghan, has put forward an interesting perspective on how he perceives the work the band is doing and what makes art. He explained, "I think that is what is really inspiring about creating art, in general, is that a billion people can paint a picture, but they can't paint it exactly how you have painted it and exactly how you have envisioned it. So, I think it is the individuals, not only in music, but in life that refuse to compromise, refuse to mold to what is popular or the surroundings, and stick to their gut. Along the way, that is the way inspiration and creativity works." Audiences find that this sentiment is shared across members of the band and that it truly is what helps to make The Maine inspiring to see play live.


The Maine Live Show Experience

Seeing the Maine in concert is by far one of the most exciting experiences. So many fans that discovered the band in what seemed to be organically on MySpace love to see The Maine live, so tickets will certainly go fast at all of the wonderful venues across the United States during its tour. The Maine has come a long way and continues to persevere. According to the singer John O'Callaghan during an interview with Crytpic Rock, "You know I still can't even imagine that we are continuing to do what we do. We have been on the road with so many different bands and actually been on quite a few of the Vans Warped Tours. Just to be able to still do it is very surreal. It is very humbling. You know it makes us want to work hard."
