Before James Valentine rocked sold out arenas as Maroon 5’s lead guitarist and the songs he wrote sold millions of copies, he went to Lincoln Southeast High School. He played in bands such as Square and Happy Dog. He played small stages in Lincoln bars and clubs.

Now Valentine, 34, will return to his home state with the band known for such hits as “Moves Like Jagger” and “She Will Be Loved” to play CenturyLink Center Omaha for Sunday’s sold-out show — one of many sold out performances on the pop-rock band’s Overexposed Tour.
