New O2 concert tickets available for the SPG suite on points

Links on Head for Points may pay us an affiliate commission. A list of partners is here.

Another batch of concerts has been added to the SPG Moments and Marriott Moments sites.

These are a good use of points – the box, whilst a long way from the stage, is very comfortable (see photo below) and the food and drink on offer is high quality.  Here is Anika’s review of a trip to see Muse.

This is the current list on SPG Moments (click here).  The new additions are at the top.  All prices are for TWO tickets and priced in SPG points.
