Not a summer in the city goes by without me attending at least one live show or concert. Some of my most memorable concert experiences have been at Molson Canadian Amphitheatre in Toronto, where I’ve seen some of today’s greatest acts perform underneath the night’s sky. Being an American Express Cardmember makes these experiences even more memorable by providing unparalleled access to some of the most highly anticipated shows in the city. The brand has carved a niche in providing unique dining, culture, film, sports and fashion experiences through their American Express Invites platform which includes Front Of The Line Advanced Presale Access, Front Of The Line Reserved Ticket allotment, Front Of The Line Entertainment E-updates and Delights Special Offers and Experiences.
Over the Labour Day long weekend I attended the Oddball Comedy Festival, which featured a hilarious line-up of comedians headlined by everyone’s favourite funny man Aziz Ansari and comedy’s new “It-Girl” Amy Schumer. With it being the last weekend of the summer, the Oddball Fest was the place to be on Sunday evening, so naturally people came out in droves. None of this was a worry of course, because as American Express Cardmembers, my friend Christian of ChristianConfidential and I breezed through the dedicated entrance reserved for Cardmembers. No waiting in line meant we had time to kill pre-show, which we did in the comfort of the American Express Lounge. Other than the line by-pass, the Cardmember lounge is one of my favourite benefits. Here is where I often cozy up on the patio with other friends who may be attending the show, have drinks and pre-show bites provided by fave restaurant Barque. To be honest, the food is so ridiculously delicious; I am usually one of the last people to leave the lounge when it’s show time. With our palettes satisfied from the American Express Lounge, it was time to take in the show, and I do not think I have ever laughed so much in my entire adult life.
The summer may be over but amazing experiences with American Express don’t end here.
