One more night? How about 16 more.

After a wildly successful Las Vegas residency runMaroon 5 is doing it all over again, as they’ll begin another 16-show run at Park MGM on May 17, 2024.

“I’m really look forward to doing it again and honestly could never have told you that before we started,” lead singer Adam Levine candidly told PEOPLE exclusively, admitting he was initially “skeptical” of the residency. "I had no idea what to expect. Obviously I went into it with an open mind and a good attitude, but I was actually shocked at how much I enjoyed it.”

During M5LV The Residency Levine got “really cozy and comfortable, probably more so than I ever had been,” he said.

2023 turned out to be a banner year for Levine, 44. In addition to the residency run, he and his wife, model Behati Prinsloo, 35, welcomed their third child, a son, in January. 

"I don't know how you can have a better life. I’m lucky enough to do what I love professionally, but also have the greatest personal life and family I could ever ask for,” he said, "and having kids and a wonderful wife, and just that life that I cling so much to. I love it so much.”

Naturally, the family of five will be together for the holidays. Asked what he’s looking forward to most about Christmas, Levine said, “Just being with my family and loving on 'em, loving 'em all.”

The three-time Grammy winner went on to say that his family “means everything” to him.

“It means more than my career,” he said. “But at the same time, having both is just a gift. And I think you don't appreciate s--- like that until you get a little older… As the years go on, I just get sappier and more sentimental about it. I love it so damn much.”

Make no mistake about it: Levine isn’t resting on his laurels either. In fact, Maroon 5 is working on new music while they prepare for another round of Vegas. However, he and the band are opting for quality, not quantity, when it comes to releasing songs. 

“We're always working on music, but there's some stuff we're working on now that we're absolutely in love with,” he said. “At this point, we don't want to release anything until we're happy. I think it gets harder, too.”

Levine jokingly continued, “I don't think there's anyone that's been able to write and produce good material for too long. Eventually everyone starts to suck. So I'm hoping that I can last a little bit longer before I start sucking.”

The upcoming M5LV The Residency dates are:

May 2024: 17, 18, 22, 25, 26, 29, 31
June 2024: 1
September 2024: 27, 28
