American pop-rock band Maroon 5 will perform at Greenbuild Oct. 5.

The Grammy-winning band will appear at the Air Canada Centre following a speech by New York Times Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist Thomas Friedman, officials with the U.S. Green Building Council said. The USGBC is host of the Oct. 4-7 sustainability conference.

"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, the USGBC’s vice president of conferences and events. "The green building community has so much to celebrate, and there is no better place to let loose then at this can't-miss event."

Adam Levine, Maroon 5’s lead singer and a judge/coach on NBC-TV’s “The Voice," said the band was excited about the engagement.

"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."
