It’s officially concert season — Canadians are excited to reconnect with their friends and check out the hottest local shows.
There are certain concert essentials that you should always have on hand to make the most of the experience: your tickets (obviously), a band tee, some glitter and an Amex Card.
If you’re not already an American Express Cardmember, you might want to make the switch before heading to your next show.
Amex Cards are your ticket to exclusive presales, lounges and premium seats for the hottest concerts and festivals in the city. If you’re already a Cardmember, here are all of the perks you’re eligible for.
Get Front Of The Line Ticket Access
Die-hard music fans know how fast a show can sell out. Luckily, American Express Cardmembers have access to Front Of The Line presale tickets for some of the most in-demand concerts, festivals and special events.
If you miss the presale, fret not. There are specially reserved seats for Cardmembers, and you can purchase Front Of The Line Reserved Tickets even during the public on-sale period.
Amex Cardmembers recently had Front Of The Line access to The Weeknd, Post Malone, Harry Styles and more.
Relax In The IG-Worthy Lounge
Got tickets for a show at the Budweiser Stage? Head there a bit early and relax in the American Express Lounge, a chill spot to grab a drink and a bite to eat before the show.
With its neon sign, greenery and indoor/outdoor seating, this lounge was made to be Instagrammed. Plus, it gives you something to do with all that time you saved from jumping the lines.
Jam Out To A Preshow DJ Set
As if you need any more reason to check out the pre-show lounge, you’ll also be able to vibe out to a DJ set that’s — you guessed it — exclusively for American Express Cardmembers.
Mingle with friends, dance to fresh beats and hype yourself up for the main event.
Breeze Through Entry Lines
With an Amex Card in hand, you'll get the VIP treatment you deserve with things like access to an exclusive Cardmembers entrance at Budweiser Stage. Translation: you'll be able to skip the line and spend more time getting that perfect pre-show selfie.
Get Updates On Upcoming Events
All of these benefits are awesome, but if you don't know what shows or events are coming to town, they’d all go to waste.You can sign up for Front Of The Line Entertainment e-Updates to get the latest event listings sent straight to your inbox. No more FOMO; you'll be the first to know, so you won't miss out on anything.
Next time you go to a show, why not turn it into a VIP experience?
