New SPG Moments and Marriott Moments concerts launched for points redemption

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

Starwood Preferred Guest and Marriott Rewards have launched some new concert tickets for their suite at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.

This is not a bad place to see a concert, as Anika’s review here shows.  The food and drink on offer is excellent, albeit you are some distance from the stage.

This is a list of the concerts available, including some older ones which have not sold out.  Availability seems to be separate across both sites, so if one site is sold out, take a look at the other. The SPG Moments home page is here.  The Marriott Moments home page is here.

Pearl Jam – 17th July (Marriott site) – 60k Marriott per pair

Iron Maiden – 10th Aug (SPG site), 11th Aug (SPG, Marriott sites) – 15k SPG / 45k Marriott per pair

Walking with Dinosaurs – 15th Aug (Marriott site) – 45k Marriott per pair

Britney Spears – 24th Aug, 26th Aug (Marriott site) – 60k Marriott per pair

Kevin Hart – 1st Sep, 2nd Sep, 3rd Sep (SPG, Marriott sites) – 15k SPG / 45k Marriott per pair

Barry Manilow – 6th Sep, 8th Sep (SPG, Marriott sites) – 15k SPG / 45k Marriott per pair

Remember that the Starwood Preferred Guest American Express credit card comes with a sign-up bonus of 10,000 SPG points.  These tickets will probably sell out before your bonus comes through, but you would have the points ready for when the next wave of tickets is released.  My review of the card is here.
