As part of the Amex Ambassador program, we got the chance to attend another exclusive American Express “UNSTAGED” experience. Amex is known for creating exciting experiences and providing access through entertainment (last year, we went to Spain to watch Coldplay “Unstaged”). This time, Amex invited us to a viewing party that was held at one of Toronto’s premier performance venues – Massey Hall, where we gathered on stage for some fine dining while we watched 7-time Grammy award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist Usher perform live at the Hammersmith Apollo in London.
The performance was the ninth installment of the innovative digital live stream series created by American Express, that connects music fans with some of their favourite artists.
If you missed out on Usher’s performance, you can still view clips from the “UNSTAGED” online concert experience courtesy of American Express and Director Hamish Hamilton.
Throughout the night, Michael Fazio (successful New York concierge for the stars) spoke about some key service perks and tips. Aside from pointing out great programs like Front Of The Line or the Platinum Concierge Service provided by American Express, he spoke about ‘forging a friendship’. This really stood out to us, because almost everything we do when it comes to 1 LOVE T.O. is about our relationships with people. It’s so important to forge friendships, and take a genuine interest in what others are doing. At the end of the day, the people, places and brands you associate with should be a part of your everyday life.
Needless to say, American Express went above and beyond to deliver a memorable night for its Cardmembers, making us feel like we were actually at the concert.
