A giant, dome-like piece of architectural brilliance that you’d expect to see in a futuristic sci-fi movie is coming to Las Vegas, where it’ll be the world’s most advanced entertainment complex.

MSG Sphere is currently under construction with a highly anticipated launch date of 2021, when it’ll provide Las Vegas visitors with a true one-of-a-kind and completely interactive experience.

It’ll also blow travellers away as they’re strolling down the Strip.


Described as a “next-generation” complex for show producers, the MSG Sphere is (as the name suggests) a 350-feet in diameter sphere that’s equipped with highly advanced technology that allows creators to transform the venue on the inside and the outside.

Las Vegas Convention & Visitors Authority’s (LVCVA) Chief Executive and President, Steve Hill, told attendees at IPW in Anaheim earlier this year that MSG Sphere’s interior and exterior will be completely programmable so that producers can project anything they want.

Anything, even a frog.


For example (a truly random example), if The Lion King (the musical) was playing at the venue, then the marketing team may want to transform the dome’s outside so that it looks like the grassy plains of Africa.

Distinctive and immense exterior aside, MSG Sphere’s interior will be able to seat 18,000 people, have laser sound and it’ll function like an IMAX but one that’s 174 times that normal size of an IMAX theatre.

The venue will also have the capability of inviting visitors to take part in massive e-sporting events where one person can play the other 17,999 people in the sphere.


“It’s a platform for the next generation of show producers to use their imagination and create the next generation of shows.”

MSG Sphere is one of the many US$6 billion changes visitors can expect to see in Las Vegas. Other upgrades include the construction of a Raiders Stadium (opening August 2020), opening of new Celebrity Chef restaurants such as Hell’s Kitchen and Eataly, attracting diverse performers (such as Janet Jackson, Lady Gaga, Christina Aguilera and more), expanding meeting spaces by three million square feet, and providing nearly 15,000 additional rooms.
