Redeem Hilton points for special Live Nation concert tickets

Hilton revealed recently that it has signed a major global deal with concert organiser Live Nation.  It will form the backbone of ‘Hilton @ Play’, a new Hilton website which you can find here.

‘Hilton @ Play’ will be offering general concert tickets, VIP packages, ‘meet and greet’ events and exclusive small-scale gigs to Hilton HHonors members as new redemption options.  It is clearly an attempt to copy the Starwood ‘SPG Moments’ scheme.

Live Nation

To give Hilton credit, this is a very impressive commercial deal for them.  Live Nation will start to advertise nearby Hilton properties to people booking concert tickets on its website and will also use Hilton properties for their employees and participants in their wholly-owned shows.

To launch the partnership, a small number of Hilton Hotels around the world will be holding concerts, starting with Conrad New York this month.

At the moment there are no UK events on the site but I would expect this to change over the next month or so.  An event in Rome just closed, for example, and someone paid 860,000 Hilton points for a package to the Barcelona Grand Prix.

Worth bookmarking.   My biggest gripe is that you cannot search the site by country which seems a massive weakness.

  1. Sounds an awful lot like SPG Moments / Auctions!

    • Head for Points says:

      It is, with the added benefit of FAR higher pricing, even adjusting for the different value of SPG and Hilton points.

  2. Hilton told me hilton@play was only for the US market
