You can read my review of my visit to Muse here and Rob’s review of Sting and Paul Simon here.

The SPG Suite is fully catered and is a very relaxed place to catch the music, although it is fair to say that if you want to jump around and sing along you would be better off down on the floor of the arena.

Starwood Preferred Guest is an American Express Membership Rewards transfer partner at 2:1. You can also get 10,000 Starwood points as a sign-up bonus for getting the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express card. I review the Starwood Amex here.  You can also transfer Marriott Rewards points into SPG at the rate of 3:1.

You can get your tickets via the SPG Moments site here. (Click on ‘see all music moments’ and then choose Europe, London)

HFP downtime

Apologies for the downtime last night.  We had another IT issue which needed fixing, which unfortunately took about 10 hours over last night.  Hopefully all good now.

    Looking for some advice:
