Las Vegas MSG Sphere: Tickets, Location, and Guide

As if the streets of Las Vegas couldn’t get any brighter. In 2023, Sphere Entertainment Co., a subsidiary of MSG Networks, turned the lights of its aptly named MSG Sphere on for the first time.

The brightly lit sphere quickly became a popular attraction for locals and tourists alike, drawing eyes from all over to catch a glimpse of the advanced structure as its 580,000 square feet of LEDs changed from an oversized basketball to a human eye.

The Sphere is one of Vegas’s newest attractions and is the city’s newest immersive experience, combining thrilling visuals with the talents of creators like Darren Aronofsky.

What is Sphere & Where is it Located? 

As the name implies, Sphere, or the MSG Sphere, is a large spherical object located on Sands Avenue just behind the Venetian Las Vegas and across from the Wynn Golf Club.

While its exterior is a sight to behold, Sphere serves a distinct purpose as a music and entertainment venue. 

Another angle of the MSG Sphere

Sphere is accessible from Sands Avenue heading eastbound from South Koval or Las Vegas Boulevard. Because Sands Avenue has a median there is no turn off from the westbound traffic.
