Adam Levine held up a Lakers No. 24 jersey during the performance of 'Memories' at Miami's American Airlines Arena on Saturday night (Feb. 1).
Maroon 5 paid homage to late Los Angeles Lakers superstar Kobe Bryant on Saturday night (Feb. 1) at their Bud Light Super Bowl Music Fest gig in Miami's American Airlines Arena.
Playing on a bill with Dan + Shay, the native Angeleons took a moment during their run through the wistful recent single "Memories" to tribute the basketball icon, who died on Jan. 26 in a tragic helicopter crash that also took the lives of Bryant's teenage daughter Gianna and seven others.
Singer Adam Levine pulled out a Kobe No. 24 jersey and held it up at the beginning of the show and the stage was bathed in Lakers purple as he told the crowd, "I don't know if I'll make it throgh this one with all my emotions intact," asking the crowd to help by singing along as some in the audience shouted "Kobe! Kobe! Kobe!" "Needless to say I think we know who this song is dedicated to."
