The production, titled, ‘U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At The Sphere, will take place at the all-new, state-of-the-art venue, MSG Sphere at The Venetian, and marks the group’s first live outing in four years.
“The Sphere show has been in the works for a long time,” the band’s Bono, The Edge and Adam Clayton said in a joint statement. “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.”
They continued, “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.”
The residency reveal comes shortly after the news that drummer, Larry Mullen Jr., plans to take time away in 2023 to undergo and recuperate from surgery. For the residency, U2 will welcome Bram van den Berg in his place.
“It's going to take all we've got to approach the Sphere without our bandmate in the drum seat,” Bono, The Edge and Adam said. “But Larry has joined us in welcoming Bram van den Berg who is a force in his own right.”
