The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti

The Matt Cord Show With Steve Vassalotti

As I wrote about a little bit in yesterday’s post, I made a quick trip out to the state of Nevada over the weekend to visit the Las Vegas Sphere. It was such a cool experience and one that would not be possible if it were not for the coordination of one individual, my dear friend, Kevin O’Donoghue.

So I could not start this post off in any other way other than sending a huge shoutout to K.O.D. for executing a fantastic trip to Sin City and everything U2. He made all of us Delco people feel special, including myself, Rob Vito, and Shane O.D.

Now back to the Las Vegas Sphere!

The Las Vegas Sphere was so incredible that I figured I would do another post on it to share every last piece of content I got from there with all the great WMGK listeners. Yesterday, I shared a bunch of photos from my experience – well, today it is all the videos I took from the U2 concert at the industry-changing venue.

The second you walk into the Sphere, you are immersed in a dome-like venue where every inch of the backdrop is a screen that can be used in infinite ways. Come to think of it, the place is still in its infancy stages, so I am sure the innovation will only grow from here for shows in the Sphere.

That said, it is unlike any other venue that has come before it, and U2 delivered incredible visuals for the show I saw over the weekend that would not have been possible without the technology of the Las Vegas Sphere.

Whether that be making it look like you are outside, floating through space, or just the clearest possible picture of the band, it really makes you feel like you are being transported to different locations just with the changing of the screens.

There is not a bad seat in the house, but don’t just take my word for it – look for yourself below!

  • Inside or Outside?

    This part was really cool. They can make it look like they’re playing at an outdoor venue, all the while remaining inside and away from that desert heat!

  • Sparks Are Flying

    Everywhere you look, it felt like you were surrounded by sparks flying. It was incredible.

  • Floating Through Space

    It almost felt like we were floating through space, or floating above a major city. The visuals were unreal.

  • U2 Close Up

    No matter where you sit in the Las Vegas Sphere, there is not a bad seat in the house because of all the video elements possible. However, if you did want to see the actual band members, have no fear, they have you covered on the screen as well with some close ups.

  • The Stage

    The stage at the bottom of the Sphere where U2 performed. Doesn’t it sort of look like a record player?

  • DJ Pauli Lovejoy

    DJ Pauli Lovejoy was the opener for U2. He played sped up hits like Let’s Dance, Can’t Get Enough, and Baby, You Drive My Car. He was great.

  • DJ Pauli Lovejoy's Roofless Car

    DJ Pauli Lovejoy performed inside a moving car, which was a nice touch. He was a cool choice as the opener.
