Starwood Preferred Guest, the Westin / W / Sheraton / Le Meridien / St Regis etc group, has listed a new batch of redemptions for the SPG Suite at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.
You can find them on the SPG Moments website.
You can book yourself in to see:
- Strictly Come Dancing Live
- The X Factor Live Tour
- Wet Wet Wet
- Country to Country
- Mariah Carey
- Ellie Goulding
- Janet Jackson
- 5 Seconds of Summer
- Harlem Globetrotters (not singing ….)
- Macklemore & Ryan Lewis
There were, for a split second, some Adele tickets available as well but they were snapped up so quickly I never even saw them. The majority of shows are 15,000 SPG points.
All tickets come as pairs with free food and drink included. You can read a review of my visit to the SPG Suite at the O2 here.
PS. If anyone is going to the SPG event in London tonight, do say Hi – I will be there.
