LONDON - With nearly a third (32%) of UK professionals admitting that friends and family describe them as 'workaholics'1, Hilton Worldwide (NYSE: HLT) turns its focus to the Capital in its quest to inspire travellers to reclaim fun with its Hilton@PLAY concert series. Following spectacular performances in Chicago, Dallas and New York, Hilton@PLAY will welcome Jess Glynne to the stage on 22nd October at the soon-to-open Hilton London Bankside, Hilton's newest hotel in the city.

To attend the events, members of Hilton HHonors, the loyalty program for Hilton's 12 distinct hotel brands, are invited to visit HHonors.com/auctions and redeem Hilton HHonors Points.

Geraldine Calpin, global head, marketing and digital, Hilton Worldwide, said, "After hosting three successful Hilton@PLAY concerts at some of our most storied hotels, we're excited to take a new approach in London, coinciding the concert with the official opening party of Hilton London Bankside. We knew it was time to turn our focus to another city known to work hard, and more importantly, play hard - and with 29 Hilton properties located across the city, London felt like the natural choice. What better way to enjoy the city in all its glory, than by offering an unforgettable performance at our new hotel with chart-topping sensation, Jess Glynne!"

About Jess Glynne
The deep and soulful vocal tone of London-based Jess Glynne became widely known when streams of "My Love," her collaboration with Route 94 -- the house-focused alias of dubstep producer Dream -- appeared online in late 2013. The track went on to hit the U.K. number one spot in March 2014, but not before "Rather Be," featuring another Glynne guest spot -- this time with the inventive chamber music-meets-house act Clean Bandit -- had reached the same chart position that January. "Home," a solo track produced and written by Bless Beats of Big Life Management, appeared online that February. Two further singles became Glynne's first to chart under her own name: both "Right Here" and "Real Love" (the latter featuring Clean Bandit again) hit the British Top Ten before the end of the year. In 2015, Glynne hit number one again as a featured act (on Tinie Tempah's "Not Letting Go"), but she also topped the chart as a solo act with "Hold My Hand." Glynne's debut full-length, I Cry When I Laugh, followed in August of 2015 on Atlantic.  In the UK she became the second British female solo artist after Cheryl Cole to have five number one singles.
