U2 played Sphere over the weekend.

Along with Red Rocks in Colorado, I guess this is another venue I’ll add to the list of places to see a concert!

My friend and local guy, Kurt Schwarz was lucky enough to get to attend one of the U2 concerts at Sphere in Las Vegas over the weekend. If you haven’t heard of this place, it’s a $2.3 billion entertainment complex of the future. And by the looks of it, it’s going to remain unmatched for some time.

This venue looks insane inside and out! Kurt also took some pictures from his 41st floor room at the Palazzo. Those are the first seven pictures you’ll see. Then, he took a couple inside, and finally some of the band onstage.

Sphere is 366 feet tall and 516 feet wide and can be seen for miles. I believe I read it can be seen from space. It’s unreal!

A huge Thank You to Kurt for the killer photos. Man, that place looks – I don’t know – words can’t even describe. Kurt told me it was “mind blowing”. In his words “I’ve never been to a better concert. The sound was absolutely and truly PERFECT.”
