The Venetian Sphere is an ambitious new project in Las Vegas that hopes to revolutionize entertainment in Sin City. The good news is that construction for the project is scheduled to begin soon, following the groundbreaking ceremony that was held last week.
The Venetian Sphere in Las Vegas has had its ground-breaking ceremony, with construction of the unique concert venue expected to begin soon.
Venetian Sphere to Revolutionize Entertainment
At the ceremony, Nevada Governor Brian Sandoval told the crowd that he believed this was the beginning of the next chapter in the history of Las Vegas. He went on to add that many times in the past, people have been unaware they were making history. The Sphere will be unlike anything anywhere else on Earth and is the first of its kind.
Sheldon Adelson, the chairman and CEO of Las Vegas Sands, was also in attendance and turned the first shovel of dirt. Adelson also said that the Sphere represented a new chapter in the ever-changing face of Las Vegas. The Sphere is a collaboration between Madison Square Gardens (MSG) and Las Vegas Sands, which owns The Venetian.
More Spheres Planned in Future
When it opens in 2021, the Sphere will be an 18 000-seat concert venue that will revolutionize the experience for audiences and artists. According to the marketing, concertgoers will be wowed by the dynamically adaptive sound system. IT promises to deliver the best audio experience in the world thanks to the use of planar waves and beamforming.
The Sphere will use thousands of small speakers mounted to the walls of the venue. On top of this, the exterior will feature a fully programmable display that will have constantly evolving visuals for onlookers. One the Las Vegas venue opens, Madison Square Gardens and the architect of the project plan to open several other Spheres around the world. One planned venue in London. However, Las Vegas will still be the first.
