Company Continues Long-Standing Support of Live Music with New Venue Sponsorship

LOS ANGELES, June 20, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mercury Insurance (NYSE: MCY), a longtime supporter of live music, will be amping up the summer concertgoing experience at the North Island Credit Union Amphitheatre (NICUA) in San Diego. Music lovers will have more than just music to enjoy during NICUA concerts, with fan experiences designed to excite the eyes as well as the ears.

“Seeing your favorite artist live is an incredible experience, and we wanted to help make each show a night to remember for Mercury customers and music fans from all walks of life,” said Erik Thompson, VP & CMO of Mercury Insurance. “We’ve created some amazing experiences that will help San Diego music lovers forge unforgettable memories with family and friends this summer.”

A key feature of the sponsorship is an art installation from world-renowned muralist Nigel Sussman, who created a 75-foot mural that blends San Diego landmarks, music and fanciful characters that will delight fans of all ages. The mural is located on the upper concourse behind the Mercury Insurance Sunset Deck and is a fun-filled tribute to rock and popular music.

“Nigel created an amazing work of art,” said Thompson. “I think concertgoers will have a lot of fun trying to identify references to 21 songs that he incorporated into the mural.”

Sussman’s signature style is represented by isometric line art and a striking but simple color palette, creating seek-and-find type illustrations that feature complex fantasy architecture and/or imaginary machines. He has worked in the past with such notable companies as Google, eBay and Adidas, and not to mention the highly successful “Where’s Bailey” collaboration with Mercury and the Los Angeles Kings. More information can be found at Sussman’s website, 

Concertgoers will also have access to the Mercury 360 photo booth, which provides fans with free, high-resolution videos to commemorate their concert experience. And if they post the video on social media using #MercuryMusic, Mercury will be looking to surprise and delight a lucky few with a pair of tickets to a future show.

  • The Mercury Fast Lane – Customers and up to three guests can skip the lines by using the Mercury Fast Lane entrance.
  • Free Lawn Chair Rentals – Customers and up to three guests can enjoy the concert with free seating.

Mercury moved its support to NICUA following the closure of FivePoint in October 2023. 

Headquartered in Los Angeles, Mercury Insurance provides auto, homeowners and business insurance through more than 4,700 employees and a network of more than 8,000 independent agents in 11 states.
