NOW SOLD OUT: redeem Hilton points for a private Jessie J concert at Abbey Road Studios!

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

EDIT:  10am, all tickets are now showing as sold out.  Such is the power of HFP …. the last few pairs sat there for 10 weeks and we can clear them out in two hours!  I look forward to seeing you there.  Abbey Road has far better lighting than the converted church used last year so at least you can see who else is in the room!

I wanted to give another mention today, as we haven’t covered it since February, that Hilton Honors is about to stage its annual London private gig.  This year you and a friend have a chance to see Jessie J playing live on Saturday 15th June.

This is a genuinely good package:

The concert is at the iconic Abbey Road Studios in Maida Vale.  If you’ve never been inside Abbey Road Studios and have any interest in music then this is something you really should do.  You will be in the same studio where the Beatles recorded much of their material.

There is a pre- and post-concert food and drink reception included

Packages include two tickets

Having been to two previous Hilton concerts, including one at Abbey Road, I can confirm that Hilton does not skimp on the food and drink and does its best to put on an impressive event.

There were 100 pairs of tickets available, priced at 75,000 Hilton Honors points per pair.  This is not an auction, it is a straight redemption.

I’d value 75,000 Hilton points at around £250.  Given that you are getting two tickets to a private gig (total capacity will only be around 250 people) in a world-famous venue with food and drink included, that’s pretty good value.

You can redeem on this page of the Hilton website.  It isn’t clear how many pairs are left because Hilton has removed the counter, but the bulk were snapped up after our initial article.  This will be a bit of an unofficial HFP reader event I think, and I will be definitely be there as I’ve snagged a media pass.

Once you’ve booked, there is an additional auction available for a ‘meet and greet’ with Jessie J before the showThe bidding page is here.

If you don’t have 75,000 Hilton Honors points, your options are:

transfers from American Express Membership Rewards – the rate is 1:2 so you’d need 37,500 Amex points

transfers from Virgin Flying Club – the rate is 2:3 so you’d need 50,000 Virgin Atlantic miles

Amex transfers generally go across in 48 hours.  Virgin Flying Club transfers are less reliable so there is some risk that the tickets all disappear, and you do lose quite a lot of value moving Virgin miles into Hilton.

    Sold out now

    • That’s funny. The last few pairs have sat their for literally 10 weeks and we can clear them in 2 hours. I really should start charging Hilton for this!

        Remind them how many credit cards you can shift when you next see them. #boredwaitingforhilton

    Dunno if anyone knows, but the ‘Meet and Greet’ photo opportunity…..is it worth 10k points? I mean is it just a chance of a selfie or is there more to it???

      I’ve been to a Jenson Button Meet & Greet before and it was a quick chat during a photo then a few drinks whilst he said a few words and that was it. I’d imagine this would be similar, a few seconds exchanging words whilst photo being taken and not much more!

    • £33 of points to show off on Instagram and Facebook … unless you’re my age when it would just look weird / creepy 🙂

      Forget about the price tag. 😉
