Las Vegas Sphere Now in Operation
The Sphere entertainment venue in Las Vegas has started operation and gathered comment from news providers around the world. The first major event at the Sphere will feature rock band, U2, in September. Additionally, the company says it’s the world’s largest spherical structure at 516 feet wide and 366 feet tall. It seats 17,600 people, with a 20,000-person standing capacity. There’s a video here of the images shown.
Plans to build a similar Sphere in London have been fiercely opposed by local groups and still needs approval from the Mayor of London. It could also be blocked by UK government minister, Michael Gove.
