The MSG Sphere Las Vegas is an under-construction music and entertainment venue being built in Paradise, Nevada.[1][2]

History[edit]

Construction on the venue began in 2018 and will be complete by 2021. The venue is being built in partnership between The Madison Square Garden Company and Las Vegas Sands Corporation.[3] The MSG Sphere will be located adjacent to The Venetian Las Vegas and just off the Las Vegas Strip. Once complete, the sphere-shaped venue will have a capacity of 18,000 and will feature LED screens inside and outside of the venue. An identical MSG Sphere will be built in London and will open sometime after the MSG Sphere in Las Vegas.[4]

In November 2018, it was reported that the MSG Sphere would be built along with new bars, private suites, a museum and retail space.[5]

Features[edit]

The MSG Sphere will be equipped with 19,000 by 13,500 resolution LED screens which will spread across the interior of the venue. All 18,000 seats will have high speed internet access. The sound system will deliver sound through the floorboards. The exterior of the venue will feature a 360 degree IMAX display which will allow those who are outside of the venue to see what is going on inside.[6]

Transit links[edit]

The MSG Sphere Las Vegas will be accessible via the Las Vegas Monorail, RTC Transit and The Deuce.

New Monorail Station[edit]

A new Las Vegas Monorail station will be built to serve the MSG Sphere and The Venetian.[7][8] In December 2018, the proposal received approval from the Clark County Commission. [9]
