U2 will make history tomorrow night as the first band to perform at the Sphere, Las Vegas‘ newest — and buzziest — entertainment venue.
Dubbed U2: UV Achtung Baby Live, the 22-time Grammy-winning band’s Las Vegas residency runs from Sept. 29-Dec. 16 for a total of 25 dates. Tickets are sold out on Ticketmaster, but last-minute U2 seats are still available on secondary market platforms including Gametime, SeatGeek, StubHub, Ticket Liquidator, Ticket Network and VividSeats.
Located at the Venetian Resort, the $2.3 billion immersive space is the largest spherical structure in the world and features fully programmable interior and exterior wraparound LED displays, both boasting 16K-by-16K resolution. The outside globe lights change colors to illuminate the city at night with changing graphics.
The quartet — frontman and rhythm guitarist Bono, lead guitarist the Edge, bassist Adam Clayton and drummer Larry Mullen Jr. — is known for their high-tech shows. The Sphere will no doubt help them continue that tradition.
“That’s what we started out wanting from the very beginning of the band is just to smash the fourth wall, get to our audience,” Bono recently told CBS News. U2 tapped visual artists Marco Brambilla and Es Devlin to design Friday’s 360-degree visuals.
The iconic Irish rock group is fresh off the March release of Songs of Surrender, an album of re-recorded tracks spanning four discs. Produced by guitarist the Edge, the 40-track collection includes hits from platinum-selling albums such as Boy (1980), The Joshua Tree (1987), Achtung Baby (1991), All That You Can’t Leave Behind (TK) and others. The track list features re-arranged or re-written versions of singles including “One,” “Where the Streets Have No Name,” “With Or Without You,” “Sunday Bloody Sunday,” “Red Hill Mining Town” and “Walk On (Ukraine),” among others.
As of press time, the cheapest U2 concert tickets we’ve seen were $165 for the Sept. 30 show on SeatGeek, with prices for other dates starting at $170-$254.
