Hilton Honors Unveils Concert Series and Exclusive New Experiences
Hilton Honors is expanding its lineup of extraordinary experiences and exclusive access for its members in 2019.
Most notable among the new experiences is the Hilton Honors Concert Series being curated specifically for Honors members. Produced in partnership with Live Nation, the concerts will feature a roster of intimate music performances at iconic hotels and venues across the globe (which appears to be a growing trend among hotels, Kimpton announced a similar program earlier this week).
The concerts kick off tomorrow with Walk the Moon at Waldorf Astoria Las Vegas and will continue with performances later this year by Jake Owen, Jessie J and more.
In addition to the concert lineup, expanded Hilton Honors offerings for this year include new once-in-a-lifetime experiences.
The opportunities being rolled out range from private dance lessons with Emmy-winning superstar Derek Hough to an exclusive Las Vegas game night with rock legend Steven Tyler and VIP tickets to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on March 29, where such legends as The Cure, Def Leppard, Janet Jackson, Stevie Nicks, Radiohead, Roxy Music, and The Zombies will be inducted.
