The Grammy award-winning band “Maroon 5” will perform for an expected audience of more than 25,000 visitors to the Greenbuild International Conference & Expo, the U.S. Green Building Council announced.

The conference and expo are scheduled for Oct. 4-7 in Toronto.

“We're thrilled to host one of music's biggest bands, Maroon 5, for what will be an unforgettable evening of inspiration and celebration," said Kimberly Lewis, USGBC vice president, conferences & events. “The green building community has so much to celebrate, and there is no better place to let loose than at this can't-miss event.”

Maroon 5’s Adam Levine said the group is revved about the gig.

“The band and I are looking forward to heading to Toronto for Greenbuild 2011,” Levine said. “The environment is a cause that the entire band deeply cares about and we are excited to help kick off the 10th anniversary of this important event.”

The concert, scheduled for the evening of Oct. 5 at the Air Canada Center, will follow a keynote address by Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman and a panel discussion of USGBC's Resiliency Agenda. The panel will feature medical anthropologist and physician Paul Farmer and ABC News political commentator Cokie Roberts.

With chart-topping hits like “Moves Like Jagger,” “Misery,”: “Harder to Breathe,” “Wake Up Call,” “She Will Be Loved,” and “Sunday Morning,” Maroon 5 quickly climbed to international stardom, scoring three Grammy Awards and selling more than 15 million albums worldwide.

A longtime champion for the environment, Maroon 5 went “carbon neutral” for its 2007 tour, USGBC said. The group performed at the Live Earth Inaugural Ball in 2009 and was honored at the 2006 Environmental Media Awards. The band has also taken the stage in support of Haiti, USGBC’s target area of aid and sustainable development through the council’s Project Haiti campaign.

The band helped launch the Haiti: Aid Still Required campaign movement earlier this year, and played at “A Night to Benefit Haiti” in Los Angeles.

Greenbuild will offer four days of educational sessions, authoritative speakers, tours of Toronto area green building projects, seminars, and networking events.
