VeryMe rewards by Vodafone partners with Disney to give customers access to exclusive pre-sale tickets for The Lion King tour

February 13, 2019

Vodafone UK is to be the exclusive sponsor of the UK tour of Disney’s multi award-winning musical, THE LION KING. The agreement will give Vodafone customers access to pre-sale tickets 24 hours before they become available elsewhere.

The previous tour of THE LION KING broke attendance records in each of the cities it visited. Vodafone mobile customers who have signed up to VeryMe rewards will now have the opportunity to be the first to access tickets for this groundbreaking production across the UK. VeryMe Rewards users will also get the chance to win money can’t buy experiences, including backstage tours and VIP tickets by entering competitions exclusively on the app.

Opening in Bristol in September 2019, access to the exclusive pre-sale starts on 25th February at 8am.  The landmark tour will then move to Edinburgh in December 2019 with VeryMe Rewards pre-sale tickets going live on 4th March. Further cities for the tour will be announced in due course.

Vodafone customers will have access to pre-sale tickets through VeryMe Rewards via the My Vodafone App.  Customers simply need to download the app and click to join VeryMe Rewards.

Glafkos Persianis, Commercial Director, Vodafone UK said: “We are delighted to be the exclusive partner of Disney’s nationwide Lion King tour. We know our customers are enjoying our new VeryMe Rewards programme and I am pleased to be able to provide them with the opportunity to get tickets to one of the world’s best-loved theatre shows before anyone else”.

VeryMe Rewards continues to add weekly opportunities from some of the UK’s favourite brands.
