U2 extends its residency at the Las Vegas Sphere

“Unprecedented demand” has led to the addition of the additional dates. U2 plans to extend their residency at the brand-new Sphere arena in Las Vegas by 11 additional dates. The Irish rock legends were the first act to play the Sphere, a recently opened arena in Nevada. They are now in the middle of their residency, playing iconic hits as well as ‘Achtung Baby’ deep cuts for the first time in 30 years. The ‘U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere’ live performances began on September 29 and were intended to last until December 16. The band has since confirmed additional dates for the residency, despite earlier this week’s reports to the contrary. According to a press statement, the extra dates, which fall in January and February, were added because of “unprecedented demand.”

For U2.com premium subscribers, a pre-sale will take place from October 19 at 10 a.m. PT until October 21 at 10 p.m. PT. You may purchase general admission tickets online starting on October 25 at 11 a.m. Pacific Time. Speculation regarding the potential next act to accept the residency has been rampant in recent months. Back in August, the New York Post also claimed that James Dolan, the head of MSG, was “locking in” The Eagles as the band that would succeed U2 and that the arena would host the group’s final tour. However, it appears that those talks are still going on considering the alleged additional U2 dates. The graphics are more crucial than the band, an insider informed the magazine. People are more interested in the Sphere experience than the band. NME gave U2’s opening night performance at the multibillion-dollar facility five stars and said it “truly takes your breath away.”
