Adam Levine is saying sorry to his fans in Chile.

The Maroon 5 frontman took to his Instagram Story on Friday to apologize for his "unprofessional" behavior during the band's performance at the Viña del Mar International Song Festival the night before.

"I’d really like to address reactions to the concert and kind of explain myself because I feel like you guys deserve that," Levine explained in his video. "You know, being in a band you play a lot of shows and I am so passionate and excited about concerts and about being my best and about the band being our best, and being our best for you guys, honestly, you know. Performing I take so seriously. Sometimes too seriously.”

"And to be totally frank, there were some things holding me back sonically last night," he continued. "And I let them get to me, and it impacted how I was behaving on stage, which was unprofessional and I apologize for that."

He added that he always wants to be the best and represent the band in the best way.

"I struggled a lot and sometimes it’s really hard for me to mask the struggle. For that, I did let you guys down and I apologize," he said, adding that it's "one show of many" and that they adore their fans in Chile.

“Last night wasn’t our best and, for that, all I can say is that I’m really sorry," he concluded.

According to CHV Noticias, Levine delivered "low energy" while on stage. In another video posted online, the 40-year-old singer sounds frustrated as he can be heard saying, "That was a TV show. That was not a concert.” Many fans in attendance took to social media to express their disappointment in the singer's performance or poke fun at him.

"I just saw #Maroon5 show in the latin festival and it was SO bad d**n, and then i saw how he insulted the organization and the city? Like what?? I feel bad for the latin people, he was so disrespectful," one person tweeted.

The band also performed in Santiago, Chile, on Friday night. The concert was well received by fans on social media.

Levine has been focusing on his music and touring with Maroon 5 since he left The Voice in May 2019 after 16 seasons.
