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.

    Cheers Rob are there set release times for new auctions has been checking daily but nothing in coming soon, can’t believe Adele wasn’t an auction some people got a steel!!

    I got the SPG 20,000 email and signed up. My partner lost his card (additional card holder) in Dublin on the way to the U.S. And Amex turned off my card instead. When I called from America to explain this, and advised I was using the card for most of my spend in the U.S. The kind lady at Amex gave me 20,000 points just like that!!!
