'U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At The Sphere'

U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At The Sphere – a special run of shows marking the band’s first live outing in four years – will see the world’s biggest rock band launch the world’s most exciting all-new state-of-the-art venue, MSG Sphere in Las Vegas this Fall.

If you didn’t catch the sneak peak during the Super Bowl last night, here is the full-length trailer announcement.

It features a group of new and longtime U2 fans (along with a few band doppelgangers) coming together for a futuristic Achtung Baby adventure in a unique desert landscape.

U2 have always – since their earliest days, including the industry-defining ZOO TV Tour which broke the mold in 1991 –  pushed the boundaries of live performance, with ground-breaking stage shows that embrace the latest in technology and innovation. The news that the band will launch the Sphere, the state-of-the art venue currently dominating the Las Vegas skyline, is fitting for a show from the world’s most thrilling live band. 
 
The announcement comes with confirmation that Larry will take time out to undergo and recuperate from surgery in 2023. These Las Vegas shows will see Larry and the band welcome drummer Bram van den Berg who will be sitting in to join Bono, The Edge and Adam onstage at the Sphere.
 
Bono, The Edge and Adam said, “It’s going to take all we’ve got to approach the Sphere without our bandmate in the drum seat, but Larry has joined us in welcoming Bram van den Berg who is a force in his own right.

THE SPHERE

The Sphere show has been in the works for a long time. We don’t want to let people down, least of all our audience… the truth is we miss them as much as they appear to miss us… our audience was always the fifth member of the band. Bottom line, U2 hasn’t played live since December 2019 and we need to get back on stage and see the faces of our fans again.

And what a unique stage they’re building for us out there in the desert… We’re the right band, ACHTUNG BABY the right album, and the Sphere the right venue to take the live experience of music to the next level… That’s what U2’s been trying to do all along with our satellite stages and video installations, most memorably on the ZOO TV Tour, which ended in Tokyo 30 years ago this Fall. 

The Sphere is more than just a venue, it’s a gallery and U2’s music is going to be all over the walls.”
