Can Vegas get anymore Vegas-y? Apparently so! And with a $1.8 billion sphere, no less. The Madison Square Garden Sphere, aka MSG square (for now), will be the world’s first spherical structure. It will change the face of Vegas and the entertainment industry forever as it stands 112-metres tall and holds 17,500 seats. So what can one expect from a structure that covers an area larger than three football fields? It will contain the most prominent and highest LED resolution screen in the world, measuring 19,000 x 13,500 pixels.
The sheer size and even the clarity of the screen will be a fully immersive experience that’s allegedly 100 times clearer than today’s best HD TVs. Even being in the presence of this structure will be overwhelming as the outside of the sphere will have about 600,000 square feet of programmable lighting.
Similarly, an infrasound haptic system will be effective in enabling audiences to feel the sound. The pandemic briefly disrupted the Madison Square Garden Sphere project, but it’s nearing completion, and the first performance is now set for 2023.
The venue’s construction commenced three years ago, in 2018, with the drilling of nearly 600 piles of excavation of some 84,00 cubic meters of material. The Madison Square Garden Sphere will most likely be connected to the Venetian and Palazzo via the Sands Expo and Convention Center. The world better gears up to witness the latest must-see marvel in a city of must-sees.
