Following the first of Post Malone’s hotly anticipated headline shows at The 02, American Express hosted ‘Amex Afters’ featuring Joy Crooks – a special after-party in the Amex Lounge to help Cardmembers and music fans get more from their night out. Kicking off straight after Post Malone’s standout show, the ‘Amex Afters’ pop-up event featured an exclusive live performance from R&B singer-songwriter, and Mercury Prize nominee, Joy Crookes. In this second*outing for ‘Amex Afters’, gig goers were treated to food and cocktails inspired by the main act, goody bags and temporary tattoos which saw guests extend their night into early hours.

Amex Cardmembers were able to secure guest list access to the after party for themselves and their guests by heading to the Amex Lounge before the gig and showing their Amex Card**.

Other onsite benefits for Amex Cardmembers attending events at The O2, include:

  • A complimentary welcome drink in the exclusive Amex Lounge
  • Score 10% off when you use your Amex Card to purchase food and beverage
  • Amex Advantage gives Cardmembers private access to premium seats with a great view of the stage and fast–track and easy access to an exclusive area in the Amex Lounge called The Gantry where Cardmembers can enjoy all-inclusive food and drink before the show

“As we head into the summer music season, we are delighted to be offering something special to our Cardmembers and music fans alike. Along with our ongoing benefits at The O2, ‘Amex Afters’ is another great opportunity to get more from the things you love with Amex,” says Aaron Burke, Vice President of American Express Brand Partnerships and Experiences.  

Georgina Iceton, Vice President of Partnership Activation at AEG Europe Global Partnerships added: “Amex Afters is a brilliant way for music fans and Cardmembers to connect with the amazing benefits and one of a kind experiences that are created through our partnership with Amex at The O2.  We’re excited to create more moments of joy for fans with Amex. ”
