All You Need Is Love (Of Money)

Given that Sir Paul has lent his name and music to Fidelity Investments and Bob Dylan is hawking lingerie, I suppose it should come as no surprise that one needs a working American Express card to buy tickets for the upcoming Cream shows in Madison Square Garden this October.

Market Wire: American Express has a long history of providing special access and meaningful experiences to Cardmembers. As part of this ongoing commitment, American Express has partnered with Cream’s reunion to secure a special opportunity for Cardmembers to purchase their tickets to what promises to be three incredible shows prior to the general public on-sale.
Tickets will go on sale first to American Express Cardmembers through a special pre-sale, beginning Monday, September 12th at 9 a.m. Tickets can be purchased via, and there will be a 4-ticket-per-person limit.
If tickets remain, they will then go on sale to the general public on Monday, September 19, 2005.
