Las Vegas, Nevada’s, $2.3 billion Sphere is making waves as the world’s most cutting-edge live entertainment venue—and for good reason. Opened this September, the stunning architectural marvel greets guests with its colossal LED exterior, displaying 580,000 square feet of LEDs—a creative canvas so bold and bright, it can be seen from outer space. The moment you step inside, you’re transported to a futuristic world of entertainment, with state-of-the-art audiovisual effects and acoustics that create an ethereal atmosphere. Shows inside the geodesic masterpiece are elevated by the seamless integration of technology, using holographic displays, 360-degree projections, and interactive elements that blur the lines between reality and the virtual world.

In addition to offering group tickets for gatherings of nine or more people, Sphere has premium VIP suites showcasing world-class service for up to 32 attendees and group experiences for up to 5,000 people with a reception and included tickets to “The Sphere Experience: Postcard from Earth,” a multisensory storytelling journey of the Earth’s history produced by acclaimed director Darren Aronofsky (who also directed the 2022 Academy Award-winning film “The Whale,” featuring Best Actor Oscar winner Brendan Fraser).

Sphere is within walking distance of several Las Vegas Strip hotels, and the venue can also be accessed via the pedestrian bridge connected to The Venetian Resort Las Vegas.
