One of the new attractions being planned for this city is MSG Las Vegas. MSG stands for Madison Square Garden, and New York City’s MSG Entertainment is a partner in this erection project that will officially open in 2023.
This huge grey ball is a building near The Linq, Las Vegas’ huge ferris wheel. This MSG extravaganza will be the largest spherical structure on Earth and will be nominally attached to The Venetian complex. The MSG Sphere will be 366 feet high, 516 feet wide, and employ 4,400 people. It’s hard evidence of a local change in attitude. This entertainment city has decided to go for the affluent visitor instead of the family vacationers it has heretofore enticed.
The MSG Sphere will feature programmable LED lighting in a complex that will seat up to 20,000. Level 8 will be the best for viewing the show in what is destined to be the world’s largest sphere. This 1.8 billion dollar venue will definitely be for the traveler with lots of money to spend and desiring to view the largest and highest resolution LED screen on this planet. All seats will face the stage. Enhanced acoustics will be part of the show behind the current Venetian at the corner of Sands Avenue and Kovall Lane near The Strip but not on it.
Originally scheduled to open in 2021, the MSG Sphere was delayed by COVID and supply-chain related complications. It will have 304 parking spaces, new bars, private suites like any modern stadium, and retail space.
