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.

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.
