To take place before the Nigerian singer-songwriter’s three sold-out London shows as part of his international ‘Made in Lagos’ tour
Virgin Media O2 has today announced that Nigerian superstar Wizkid will be performing an exclusive gig for its customers on Wednesday 24 November. Taking place at London’s iconic O2 Forum Kentish Town, the intimate show will be the first chance for fans to see the singer-songwriter perform in the UK since 2019, ahead of his three sold-out shows at The O2.
Having worked with some of the biggest names in music over the past few years – including Beyoncé, Drake, Skepta and Justin Bieber – the afrobeats artist is one of the hottest names on Priority Tickets in 2021. His three upcoming shows at The O2 – part of his international ‘Made in Lagos’ tour and The O2 Welcome Back Shows – sold out in under an hour, with all 20,000 tickets to his performance on Monday, 29 November selling-out in just two minutes.
Virgin Media O2 will give away 800 pairs of tickets to the most-anticipated performance of the year through Priority, celebrating today’s news that Virgin Media cable customers now have access to the rewards app which was previously exclusive to those on O2.
Wizkid, said, “It’s been two years since I performed in London! Feels very good to be coming back in a big way! For fans who may have missed out on tickets to the Made in Lagos Tour, I’ll be doing an exclusive gig at O2 Forum Kentish Town. See y’all soon.”
From today, Virgin Media cable customers can register on the Priority app, which was formally exclusively available for O2 customers, to receive a huge range of benefits at no extra cost – from Priority Tickets, which gives access to tickets for thousands of events and gigs at hundreds of venues across the UK up to 48 hours before general sale, to a whole host of rewards from a range of high street brands including Greggs, Caffè Nero, ODEON and more.
Users will also be able to benefit from more perks and rewards than ever before as the Priority app will also be enhanced with a range of exciting new perks from Virgin brands.
In addition to the exclusive show from Wizkid, thousands of prizes worth more than £250,000 will be available to win instantly on the Priority app this week, including five-star holidays to Virgin Limited Edition hotels across the world, along with prizes from Virgin Experience Days, Virgin Wines, Caffè Nero, Greggs and ODEON.
Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer at Virgin Media O2, said, “Bringing Priority, one of the UK’s best and most-celebrated loyalty initiatives, to Virgin Media cable customers was the next logical step after Volt combined the best of both brands to supercharge our offering.
“We’re committed to ensuring our customers have access to the most incredible range of perks in the industry, from popular high street brands to early access to the most sought-after tickets in entertainment.
“To celebrate we’ve got thousands of prizes on offer this week alone – including the chance to see one of the hottest names in music perform live – and there is plenty more to come.”
