LONG BEACH, CALIFORNIA - OCTOBER 30: Drake attends Drake's Till Death Do Us Part rap battle on October 30, 2021 in Long Beach, California.

The Las Vegas Sphere is a visual artist’s dream. Located in Paradise, Nevada, the music and entertainment venue is only 1.5 miles from the Las Vegas Strip. The building stands at 366 feet tall and spans 516 feet across. It is the largest spherical structure in the world. While the outside of the Sphere is an exemplary piece of architectural design, the inside is what every artist dreams of.

The inside of the Las Vegas Sphere has the world’s highest resolution LED screen (16K) that wraps around the arena and can hold up to 18,600 guests in the auditorium. 10,000 of those seats have an infrasound haptic system, and all 18,600 seats have a high-speed internet connection according to FOX Business. In addition the Sphere also has 4D effects with effects to change the weather, temperature and more. For sound, the Sphere has the world’s largest beamforming audio system.

The venue opened on September 29 with U2 gracing the stage as the Sphere’s first performers. Their residency extends through March 2.

Additionally, Verizon teased the possibility (but were most likely referring to the commercial) on their X account.

This follows Forbes’ November 2023 report that Beyoncé and her team were looking into the high-tech performance center for a residency. The singer’s team is reportedly requesting $10 million to produce the show. Beyoncé has not confirmed that she will go on tour for this album or that she will have a concert or residency at the Sphere at the time of this writing. Still, it would be pretty amazing!
