American Express and Beyoncé’s Formation World Tour Team Up with Uber to Give Riders #AmexAccess to Sold Out Stadium Tour

Uber Riders Can Use Code ‘FORMATIONAMEX’ to Unlock In-App Experience for
Two Complimentary Tickets and a Round-Trip Ride to The Formation World
Tour in 20 U.S. Cities

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–American Express in partnership with The Formation World Tour announce
today a promotion with Uber to give Beyoncé fans #AmexAccess to sold out
shows across the U.S. Starting today, Uber riders will be able to
request the “FORMATION” view in the Uber iOS
or Android
app after they enter the promo code FORMATIONAMEX, while limited
supplies last. If an Uber rider requests and is matched to a “FORMATION”
ride, they will receive two tickets courtesy of American Express to the
highly-anticipated tour in their city, as well as a complimentary
round-trip uberX ride to and from the concert venue.

“We are obsessed with delivering unparalleled experiences in unique and
memorable ways,” said Deborah Curtis, vice president, Global
Experiential Marketing, American Express. “We have longstanding
relationships with both Beyoncé and Uber, and are excited to bring them
together for The Formation World Tour through this unique integration
that represents the intersection of music access and mobile technology.”

“Most people know Uber as a convenient and affordable way to get from A
to B. But it is these types of surprise-and-delight opportunities ––
like the opportunity to see Beyoncé live –– that make the Uber
experience truly unique,” Amy Friedlander Hoffman, Head of Business
Development and Experiential Marketing, Uber. “We’re beyond thrilled to
team up with American Express to offer riders complimentary access to
the sold-out Formation World Tour.”

The in-app Uber experience kicks off today in Miami for The Formation
World Tour opening night performance at Marlins Park.

How To Get In Formation for Beyoncé Tickets

Uber riders can request tickets and a round-trip uberX ride to The
Formation World Tour in a few simple steps*:

  • Enter code FORMATIONAMEX in the Uber app to unlock the special
    “FORMATION” view
  • Request a ride in the “FORMATION” view at the designated time on the
    day of The Formation World Tour show in your city
  • If connected with a “FORMATION” ride, you’ll be picked up and
    transported to the concert venue free of charge – your Uber driver
    will have your tickets
  • After the show, request an uberX for your complimentary ride home

Demand will be high and availability limited; not all riders who request
