SPG Moments Summertime Hyde Park London Concert series VIP Experiences

Last year I checked out the Hyde Park London concert series and got totally psyched that the Rolling Stones were playing in Hyde Park in July during the nights we were booked to stay at InterContinental Park Lane. As I researched this great intersection of my being in London and the Stones playing a free show across the street from our hotel, my jubilation quickly subsided when I learned the concert happened in 2013.

While the Stones are not playing Hyde Park July 2016, there is the annual free concert series British Summertime Hyde Park. But my summer plans are not London this year, so I will be searching for concert opportunities in Stockholm, Krakow and Christiania, Copenhagen this July.

SPG Moments currently has 24 VIP ticket items for Summertime Hyde Park London in their auctions ending June 10. I see musicians and singers I would bid points for on every concert day offered.

Concert series VIP tickets are available for July 1, 2, 3 and 8, 9, 10. Each day is a separate auction event and there are up to five types of items in SPG Moments auctions for each date.

1. VIP Terrace Tickets – buys you standing space in a covered area with good view of stage. Concerts happen rain or shine.
