All those flashy, star-studded Super Bowl parties coming up are going to be mighty tough to get into for average, noncelebrity folks. However, Citi is offering cardholders special access today to its “Evenings with Legends” series, featuring intimate concerts from John Legend on Jan. 29 and Band of Horses on Jan. 30 at the McKittrick Hotel.
Tickets to the shows go on sale at 11 a.m. today through the Citi Private Pass Program, citiprivatepass.com or 800-301-3327, as well as discussions between The Giants’ Eli Manning and commentator Bob Papa on Jan. 29, ESPN’s Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic and former Bears coach Mike Ditka on Jan. 30, and 49ers Hall of Famer Jerry Rice and NBC’s Peter King on Jan. 31.
“Being in the same room with the athlete or band you've been cheering on for years is the ultimate experience for many fans,” Jennifer Breithaupt, Citi’s senior vice president of entertainment marketing, said in a statement. “We're looking forward to creating these memories for our cardmembers in an intimate and unique setting, during what will surely be the busiest and most exciting week in New York City this year.”
Citi is also sponsoring a special Black Keys show at Roseland Ballroom on Jan. 31 for cardholders. Tickets to that show don’t go on sale through Citi Private Pass until Jan. 28.
Passes to “Citi Super ProCamp V,” a youth football camp open to boys and girls in grades 1-8 hosted by Garth Brooks and Giants defensive end Justin Tuck at Yankee Stadium on Feb. 1, are already available through Citi Pass.
