At a height of 100 meters, the world’s largest ball will open in Las Vegas for shows and events | Travel and Tourism

The 100-meter-high spherical structure, immersive seating and multisensory technologies will be the new venue for concerts and events in Las Vegas, USA, starting in 2023.

The place is called MSG Sphere, and it has been under construction since 2019 in the precinct of the luxury The Venetian Hotel and is expected to open in the second half of next year. In addition to the shows, the space intends to add product launches and sporting events.

According to Madison Square Garden Entertainment (MSG Entertainment), the group responsible for the construction, the project has cost US$1.8 billion (about R$9 billion) and will be the largest spherical structure in the world.

“MSG Sphere will not be like anywhere else. Not only is the spherical shape a distinctive design element, but it also enables an entirely new medium for fully immersive experiences. We are one step closer to realizing our vision for MSG Sphere.”

With approximately 17,500 seats – including 10,000 immersive seats – and a capacity of approximately 20,000 guests, the MSG Sphere will have temperature and odor changes to drive the experimental combo.

MSG Entertainment has also developed a multi-layered sound system with more than 160,000 speakers that uses technology to deliver targeted, clear, and consistent sound for every seat in the home.

In May this year, the group hosted a gala to celebrate the “top” of the site’s steel outer shell. This achievement was the completion of basic structural work on the MSG Sphere, which took over a year.
