    NEW YORK and FORT WORTH, TEXAS, Sept. 13, 2012 – Exclusively for Citi® / AAdvantage® cardmembers, Citi and American Airlines today announced the Citi® / AAdvantage® Card Love the Journey Concert Series. The events, which take place in New York and Los Angeles this October, will feature performances by Alicia Keys and Maroon 5 where they will share their music and stories of their journeys to stardom.

    “We’re always looking for new ways to reward our customers’ loyalty, and these concerts are a unique way to recognize Citi / AAdvantage customers and celebrate our 25-year journey with American Airlines,” said Ralph Andretta, Head of Co-Brands and Loyalty at Citi Cards. “We look forward to hosting these great performances where our customers can listen to their favorite music and hear about the artists’ journeys.”

    On Monday, Oct. 15, 2012, Grammy-Award winner Alicia Keys will bring her signature style and music to Avery Fisher Hall at New York’s Lincoln Center. In Los Angeles, chart-topping Maroon 5 will perform at The Orpheum Theatre on Friday, Oct. 19, 2012.

    “I can’t think of a better way to share new music from Girl On Fire than by holding a special, intimate concert,” said Alicia Keys. “I really love performing in this kind of environment. It's a connection that is indescribable.”

    “It's been an amazing journey sharing our music with fans over the years. We're excited to share some of our stories along the way with fans in this special concert for Citi / AAdvantage customers,” said Adam Levine of Maroon 5.

    Tickets can only be purchased with a Citi® / AAdvantage® credit card, beginning on Sept. 18, 2012, through www.citi.com/concertseries. For this exclusive event, tickets are limited to two per Citi® / AAdvantage® cardmember and are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
