The Venetian MSG Sphere Projected to be Topped Off This Month.
Construction crews will top off the steel frame exosphere of the 366-foot-tall MSG Sphere at The Venetian later this month. The MSG Sphere, the latest Las Vegas "State of the Art," Entertainment venue located just east of the Venetian Expo Convention Center, is expected to be Open in late 2023.
In a recent earnings call for Madison Square Garden Entertainment Corp., Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer David Byrnes also said the company is negotiating a partnership with the organizers of the first of three Las Vegas Grand Prix Formula One auto races planned in Las Vegas in November 2023. Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority President and CEO Steve Hill las week said he expects the Las Vegas Grand Prix Formula One race to become an annual event for the city after races in 2023, 2024 and 2025. “MSG Sphere’s prime position along the circuit (race course) presents a high-profile opportunity for both our company and F1,” Byrnes told investors. “We will be able to showcase the venue to a global audience of entertainment and sports fans both in-person and watching broadcasts of the event around the world.” The 3.8-mile course includes portions of Koval Lane where the circuit will divert east and circle the Sphere before moving to Sands Avenue. “And this integrated partnership will give F1 significant access to the venue and our grounds for thousands of race fans as well as takeovers of our exterior LED display for race-related content activations and advertising,” he said. “There are also potential hospitality opportunities beyond MSG Sphere to include Tao Group.”
