Usher Unstaged & Dinner at Massey Hall

A sponsored hip + urban girl post.

Usher may have been letting it burn in his London, England concert on Monday but Amex did a pretty sweet job hooking us fans up with the best seats in the house, and right in our own backyard.

An intimate dinner party for 25 special guests was hosted at the last place I ever expected to be noshing on spinach ricotta tortellini...

Yup, I had dinner centre stage at Massey Hall, while tuning into a live broadcast of Usher Unstaged.

Pretty cool eh? If anyone could have pulled it off, you know it would be Amex - known for going out of their way to reward Cardmembers and taking an experience from satisfactory to sensational.

Attendees included the Amex Ambassadors (Catriona of Coco & Cowe, Jen from She Does The City and Bryan, the other half of 1loveTO), lifestyle bloggers and the American Express Canada team.

Mr. Concierge Confidential himself, Michael Fazio took time off serving Manhattan’s Upper East Caviar Queens to play host and share his top service tips which include:

  • Forge friendships with the right brands and companies that will reward you for being loyal consumers.
  • Always remember that keeping your cool and treating customer service in a professional and friendly manner will more likely get you what you want.
  • If you really want something, just ask!

Usher’s Got Us Fallin’ In Love Again so now what?

If you missed out on last night's Usher Unstaged performance or just want to gawk at his abs some more, errr I mean hear his talented voice again, you can watch clips of the concert on YouTube, Twitter, and XBOX Live, via the VEVO application.

Skip the line and experience the other side of the velvet rope.

We admit we Got It Bad and had a great night laughing, dancing and swooning over Usher. Who would have thought that having the right Card in your wallet would get you into the right seat!

I can’t wait to see what perk Amex Cardmembers will get next!

So if you haven’t already, get the Card, join the American Express Canada Facebook page and discover what’s it like “to be there”.
