Amazon is sweetening the pot for its ‘Prime’ customers with a new concert series with tickets offered exclusively to its premium members. Initially launching in the UK, a source tells Hypebot that the company hopes to add U.S. concerts before the end of this year.
Launching this month, Amazon Prime Live Events will feature internationally recognized artists performing in intimate settings in and around London. The first concert is set to take place on May 23rd when Blondie performs at the historic Round Chapel in Hackney in front of 750 fans.
English singer-songwriter Alison Moyet is also slated to perform at the Round Chapel, including a pre-concert Q&A session on June 12th.
Other artists scheduled to perform include Scottish pop-rockers Texas, who will perform at Porchester Hall on June 16th. Katie Melua is also lined up for a pair of dates in July at Cadogan Hall in Chelsea.
For Prime customers who aren’t in the market, the Amazon has promised that the concert performances will be recorded and streamed via Prime Video internationally with no additional membership costs.
