As far as Amazon Prime benefits go, this one is a show-stopper.

Amazon is launching a new concert series called Prime Live Events that will take place in London between May and July. Here’s the kicker: the only people who can buy tickets to these shows, which feature artists like Blondie, Alison Moyet, Texas and Katie Melua, are Prime members.

For those who can’t make the trek across the pond, the shows will be added to Amazon’s Prime Video streaming service later. Amazon previously tested the concept with shows featuring Robbie Williams and John Legend.

The new live events platform is part of Amazon Tickets, a service Amazon launched in the U.K. back in 2015 that the online retail giant envisions “becoming Earth’s most customer-centric ticketing company.” So far, the service is only available in the United Kingdom but Amazon says it is gearing up for a “rapid expansion” of Tickets.

There are numerous Amazon Tickets openings on the company’s job site for positions at the Seattle headquarters as well as London and Austin, Texas.
