Las Vegas’ new $2.3bn Sphere venue has been lit up for the first time ahead of its grand launch later this year.

As part of a special show to celebrate the 4th of July, the Sphere Entertainment Co — formerly Madison Square Garden Entertainment — venue’s 580,000-square foot fully-programmable LED Exosphere exterior – the largest LED screen on earth – was completely illuminated.

The Exosphere consists of approximately 1.2 million LED pucks, spaced eight inches apart. Each puck contains 48 individual LED diodes, with each diode capable of displaying 256 million different colours.

The 18,600-capacity Sphere at The Venetian Resort, which will open with a U2 residency from September, has been designed to create a new landmark on the Las Vegas skyline.
