The MSG Sphere is the Arena of the Future in Las Vegas

Las Vegas is a place where the hottest entertainment and latest technology come together in new and exciting ways. The Strip is now getting ready to welcome a new venue that can only be considered the arena of the future. Here's what we know about the MSG Sphere Las Vegas.

  • The MSG Sphere, a partnership between the Las Vegas Sands Corporation and the Madison Square Garden Company, will be on the east side of the Strip behind the Venetian and Palazzo — connected to those resorts by 1,100-foot-long pedestrian bridge.
  • The venue will be, as the name suggests, an enormous sphere that's more than 500 feet tall and 360 feet wide with seats for more than 18,000 spectators inside.
  • The exterior of the MSG Sphere will be wrapped in programmable LED screens that can mimic the image of the Earth, reveal what's inside the venue or even appear to be invisible — plus much more. The imagery is only limited to the human imagination.
  • The interior will feature a 170,000-square-foot screen that's the largest and highest-resolution display panel on the planet.
  • The MSG Sphere will include a groundbreaking audio system. By using "beamforming technology," the audience will hear music and other audio projections in crystal-clear quality at a consistent level — no matter where you're sitting in the venue.
  • An interactive floor can vibrate and allows guests to feel enhanced bass during music performances.
  • Each seat will have access to 20 megabits-per-second of online connectivity. This could prove valuable for events that incorporate enhanced interactive technology in the future.
  • In addition to the latest audio and video technology, the senses of smell and touch will also be stimulated, whether it's the feel of a breeze blowing through a forest or the scent of a rose garden.
  • Events are expected to include music performances by headline acts, interactive films, educational seminars and trade conferences — all expected to take full advantage of the advanced technology in the arena.
