See The Killers with Virgin Points at The O2 from the new Virgin Red VIP box

Links on Head for Points may support the site by paying a commission.  See here for all partner links.

Back in May, Virgin Red took over a box at The O2 in London with seats to be made available to members for points.

This will replace the box at the AO Arena in Manchester which will close after the summer.

Virgin Red is now offering tickets for the six highly anticipated shows by The Killers over the next two weeks.

Virgin Red Room O2 London

The following shows are available as of 2pm Saturday at the bargain price of 30,000 Virgin Points for two people:

  • Thursday 4th July
  • Friday 5th July
  • Sunday 7th July
  • Monday 8th July
  • Wednesday 10th July
  • Thursday 11th July

This is what you need to know about the box:

  • the box contains 28 seats, so it is larger than the Marriott Bonvoy box at The O2
  • tickets are bookable with Virgin Points via the Virgin Red app
  • tickets come with access to the fast track entry lane at The O2
  • tickets come with two free drinks per person
  • food, and additional drinks, will be available for purchase in the box

There is one important point to note. The box has not been decorated yet. It has been stripped back to bare walls. It won’t be long now – we have been invited to a press preview of the new look in early August – but I suspect it won’t be done in time for The Killers.

If you do not have a Virgin Red account but do have a Virgin Flying Club account, you will need to download the Virgin Red app, sign up and link your Flying Club account. Your existing points balance will then be usable in the app. If you join Virgin Red via this referral link you will get 1,000 bonus points with your first earn transaction.

If you want to top up your Virgin Points for a future concert redemption, you now receive 18,000 Virgin Points as a sign-up bonus with the Virgin Atlantic Reward+ Mastercard. Our full review is here and you can apply here.

If you want to top up your balance by buying Virgin Points, the link is here. There is currently a 70% bonus on offer.

    Saw them in Glasgow this week, it’s a fabulous show.

  • Kes says:

    Just wonder, would they allow my 15 and 17 daughters with me in Redroom?
    As there’s a bit unclear about under 18 in T&C – is it Virgin style adults only?

    • Rob says:

      O2 is fine with it, and Marriott was fine with it when I took my (then) 12 year old to their box. As long as someone is over 18 it should be fine. It won’t be fine if no-one is over 18. There is no free flow self pour alcohol.

  • Katie says:

    Thanks Rob, just booked! 😁

  • Jo says:

    Are you able to book more than 2 tickets? If a family of 4, is there any option to select 4 tickets or do you just book twice and hope they are still available after you book the first two?

  • gundam says:

    Has anyone been to the Virgin suite and the the NinetyThird at O2? Are they comparable experiences?

    • Rob says:

      Not in the slightest, except for the stage view. Virgin is a small cocktail party for 28 in a little box.

      93rd was built with a huge budget (£10m IIRC), covers 1150 sq m and handles 200 across three bars, inc a champagne bar and high end cocktail bar, and a restaurant with Michelin pretensions.

      No difference in how you enter/exit o2 or reach the suites though.

      • gundam says:

        Thanks. I am looking forward to the ninetythird and trying to spend the £400 F&B!

  • A13 says:

    Incredible show on this tour.

  • Nathan says:

    Cheers Rob, booked! Good way to spend some of the stash of virgin points.

  • Andrew says:


    The priority lane though… anyone with O2 or Virgin mobile can use it. We’ve used it before and it’s as slow as any other.

    Have two standing tickets for the Weds for sale now on the AXS/O2 app… anyone interested? 😉
