Do you have a “Desire” for a U2 residency in Las Vegas? You might find what you’re looking for at the new MSG Sphere at The Venetian.
Is U2 Going to Have a Residency in Las Vegas?
According to Billboard’s Dave Brooks, multiple sources claim the Irish rockers will be the first group to play the new venue when it opens sometime in 2023.
“U2’s concerts at the venue will be part of a residency that will be spread out over several months and be performed on non-consecutive days,” Mr. Brooks writes. (My first thought: Bono gets at least a day off between shows so he can rest his voice.)
No official announcements regarding U2’s potential residency or other MSG Sphere events have been made.
I’ve been to about a dozen U2 concerts, and they all were fantastic. (My interest in the group tapered off about five years ago when their new music didn’t really do anything for me and Bono’s rhetoric somehow became more political.) A semi-permanent, full production show would be great to see — especially if the setlist consisted of their music through, say, 2009.
And the new MSG Sphere at Venetian looks amazing. It’s the big dome-like building between Harrah’s and The Venetian. It’s a couple of blocks off the strip (between Koval and Paradise). But the Sphere is already giant. It’s easy to spot when you’re coming from or going to the airport. Check out the sizzle reel below.
There are strong rumors a U2 residency is coming to Las Vegas’ MSG Sphere at The Venetian. (Actually, it’s located in Paradise, Nevada. Not Las Vegas proper.)
No official announcements have been made. But it will be a Beautiful Day for many fans when (and if) that happens.

The last U2 concert which I attended left me mumbling that I still haven’t found what I’m looking for — with or without you.
It will be a New Year’s Day on a Sunday Bloody Sunday in July before I would even consider seeing them in concert again…
I would take a proper trip to Las Vegas for this.
I went to see the last tour (it was a great show although too many newer songs) and my comment afterwards was “in less than 10 years, Bono will write a Broadway show about growing up in Ireland and use U2 songs as the soundtrack.” This is stage one of the process.
I bet Cirque does a U2 show at some point (assuming there’s still a Cirque in 10-20 years).
I could see that too. Me2U2 at the Bellagio lol.
Speaking of Cirque shows at Bellagio, I’m going to say it: O is O-verrated.
