U2 Sphere Residence & Zoo Station Exhibit

Updated: Jan 9

By: Erin Jones

Starting on September 29th, rock band U2 will hold a residency at The Sphere, a new arena at the Venetian Resort, in Las Vegas. Over the next few months, U2 will be performing songs from their 1991 album, Achtung Baby. Along with the new, immersive venue, fans will also have the opportunity to interact with special Achtung Baby content at “Zoo Station: A U2:UV Experience,” an exhibit with photo galleries and ‘curated’ film screening, also to be located at the Venetian Resort starting on September 28.

The Dublin-based rock group consists of lead singer Bono, lead guitarist The Edge, bass guitarist Adam Clayton, and drummer Larry Mullen, Jr. Inducted into the Rock & Hall of Fame in 2005, the group is renowned for their novelty and variation, as each album has a unique sound and deep emotion. The band is also celebrated for their attention to social justice issues, not only within their music but through political advocacy, donations and volunteer work, as well.

Achtung Baby, the band’s seventh studio album, is by far one of their most successful albums. Containing hits such as “One” and “Mysterious Ways,” Achtung Baby is one of the top albums of 1991. The album contains experimentation with electronic rhythms and new production styles, while keeping the band’s emotional intensity. The album was accompanied by U2’s ambitious 1992 Zoo TV Tour.

U2 is known for their incredible live performances, and the band is excited to enhance their production value with the Sphere’s fascinating capabilities, as the Sphere is tailored to live concerts, instead of the sporting-event-tailored arenas they are familiar with. The Sphere boasts the title of being the largest spherical structure and contains the largest beamforming audio system.

The Zoo Station exhibit will contain a photo and video gallery from acclaimed photographer, Anton Corbijn. Fans will have a chance for screenings of Zoo TV Cinema, daily films selected by The Edge, as well. This interactive experience also has exclusive merchandise and a lounge for fans to enjoy before the show.

U2 has had quite a busy year. The band recently celebrated the 30th Anniversary of their 1993 album, Zooropa. They also released Songs of Surrender, an album filled with re-recorded hits, this past March.
