The first concert took place in the huge spherical Sphere venue in Las Vegas, with the legendary U2 performing for the audience. Videos and photos of the grand event are actively shared online, writes ArchDaily.
The uniqueness of the event lies in the venue. This is a room with a grand screen equipped with 1.2 million LEDs. The height of the structure is 112 m and the width is 34 m. All this creates a unique experience for the audience.
Some videos are so impressive that you lose all sense of reality. Technology gives the impression that a person is somewhere in an open space.
The project was developed by the Populous architectural bureau and first announced in 2018. The cost of the Sphere is estimated at an incredible $2.3 billion. For the first time, the sphere “lit up” on July 4, when the inscription “Hello World” appeared on it.
In total, it can accommodate almost 39 thousand spectators, offering them an exciting performance experience. The LED screen has an area of 54 thousand square meters and is considered the largest of its kind in the world. At the same time, the building looks extraordinary not only from the inside, but also from the outside.
The clear sound in Sphere is the result of 160 thousand speakers. There is also equipment in the room that creates the sensation of wind and temperature changes. And while all this sounds great, some viewers may complain of nausea or dizziness.
The arena is designed to host performance shows and concerts, but it can also host some sporting events, including cyber sports tournaments.
