Pop rock band Maroon 5 performed for the second time in Tel Aviv’s Park Hayarkon Monday night, to an estimated crowd of 50,000 people.

The Monday show was slightly shorter than Sunday night’s performance, clocking in at an hour and a half compared to two hours the previous night, albeit with a largely similar playlist.

Adam Levine, the tattooed, gregarious lead singer who has been keeping in touch with Israeli fans through Instagram, was effusive about his time spent in Israel.

“This is a crazy, incredible, amazing vibe here in this city you guys have — amazing!” Levine told the crowd. “And we love you so much and I know it took us twenty years to get here, it took a long time to get here and everyone thought we were coming and then we weren’t coming and there were rumors…but I wanna tell you guys, now that we’ve been here, I’m gonna tell you, please, will you have us back 1,000 or more times?”

As the crowd roared its approval, Levine grinned.

“Okay, I’ll hold you to it,” he said.

The band’s next tour date is June 3 in Sacramento, CA.
