On July 25, 2011, Stevie joined Maroon 5 during the encore of the band’s Hollywood Bowl show for a crowd-pleasing rendition of Stevie and Don Henley’s 1981 hit duet “Leather and Lace.” With Stevie stepping up her vocals and lead singer Adam Levine assuming Henley’s high tenor role, the performance received thunderous ovation from the audience. Stevie played up the onstage antics by playfully offering her hand to Adam, who responded by kneeling and bowing before her. The crowd roared in approval.

Both acts have mutual respect and love for each others’ music.
