If there’s one thing I love about American Express, it’s that I can always count on them to help me unlock amazing moments when it comes to fashion, live music, sports and culinary experiences. One of the most sought after concert of 2015 has been Janet Jackson’s Unbreakable world tour, which hit Toronto’s Air Canada Centre on September 15th. Janet will always have a place in my heart and has practically been there for many of my firsts in life. Her Rhythm Nation 1814 album was the first cassette tape I ever owned. When the album dropped, she was the first live concert I ever attended, which happened to be at the same venue I watched her perform last week – The Rogers Centre, formally known at the SkyDome. Janet’s music was around for my first kiss, first love, first breakup and everywhere in between. She was like the older sister I always wished I had.
Having great seats to this sold out show was non-negotiable and luckily for my friends and I, we were able to secure our tickets before they went on sale through Amex’s exclusive Front Of The Line program. As a frequent concert-goer, this perk completely takes the anxiety away when trying to get access to shows in the city. This is just one of the many benefits of being an American Express Cardmember. In addition to advance ticket sales, becoming a Cardmember allows you to avoid long lines by using their dedicated access into select venues, including a slew of other advantages such as Front Of The Line Reserved Ticket allotments and Delights Special Offers and Experiences.

Out of all the moments I unlocked this year with American Express, this was by far the most memorable. The show was everything I hoped it would be and more. With 32 back-to-back hits including “Pleasure Principle”, “Escapade” and “Miss You Much” along with some of the most technical choreography executed by nine insanely talented dancers, the show seemed to fly by.
Amex unlocks moments like these for roughly half a million Canadians every year through it’s partnerships with Live Nation, Mirvish, and Massey Hall, just to name a few. With a wide variety of partners appealing to a number of passions, Amex provides its Cardmembers unparalleled access to the most inspiring events and experiences.
