See top bands for points as new Marriott Moments O2 concert tickets released

Marriott Rewards has launched some new concert tickets for their suite at the O2 Arena in Greenwich.

The catered box at the O2 is not a bad place to see a concert, as our 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 as of last night.  Interestingly, the new ‘barstool seat’ options which we wrote about last week are NOT offered.  It isn’t clear if these will be released at a later date or not.  This is annoying if, like me, you would prefer the ‘barstool seats’ package if Marriott is planning to add it.

Here are the new options.  All pricing is for TWO people.  These are all ‘buy it now’ deals rather than auctions.

  • Slipknot (26th January, 45000 points)
  • National Television Awards (28th January, 100000 points)
  • Kaiser Chiefs (1st February, 45000 points)

  • Music for the Marsden (3rd March, 60000 points)

    Craig David is listed under comedy – how ironic 😁

  • James k says:

    holding out for Elton John… Seems like the prices have gone up – I booked Disney on ice with the kids for 30,000 in the summer.

  • Brian says:

    OT Anyone with experience using IHG reward club premium with Curve?

    Do they charge any additional fee for standard purchases?

    Thanks in advance

    • Nick M says:

      Works without issue for me most of the time.

      Saying that, I did have a £700 transaction declined the other week – but I had also made a similar size transaction the day before… could be linked, or could have just been a temporary system issue

    • kishor says:

      Fails 50% of the time for me, even on transactions of a couple of quid. And done plenty of varied spending – not just drawing £1000 a day out of the ATM.

    • Anna says:

      AFAIK most people can only put £200/300 per day or £700 per week through Curve with IHG.

  • Unsavage gerbil says:

    Any tickets for Rage against the Machine?

    • Chrisasaurus says:

      Nope

      Its subjective but I wouldn’t have used ‘top’ in description of the bands that are available…

      • ankomonkey says:

        When I read “top bands” I expected to see Entombed and Warlord listed, but no…
