Who's Next To Take The Sphere By Storm?

U2’s historic residency at Las Vegas’ Sphere is scheduled to end on Saturday, March 2. 

It’s fair to say the first-ever residency in the city’s new $2.3 billion venue has been a resounding hit.

So much so that the band extended their stay, adding four extra shows to their original dates. 

Standing 366-feet tall, The Sphere, with its 360-degree external LED screens, has taken entertainment to the next level. 

The Irish rock legends were the first to perform in the dome-shaped venue and they have set a very high standard for others to follow. 

Phish are next up to perform at The Sphere for four nights, before Dead & Company take to the stage for 24 gigs starting on May 16.

Who will be next to play at the 18,600-seat venue? UK betting sites have compiled their list of the acts most likely to be offered a residency. 

Next Sphere Residency After Dead & Company

Fleetwood Mac15/2
Harry Styles9/1
Foo Fighters10/1
Spice Girls10/1

Beyonce Is Favourite To Be Sphere's Next Residency 

If The Sphere decides to take a break from rock, then why not choose a solo artist to take up residency there.

Beyonce is the 10/3 favourite to be the next act lined up to perform at the futuristic venue.

With over 200 million album sales, tickets to see the former Destiny’s Child star would surely sell out in record time. 

Harry Styles is 9/1 to be the next artist to perform at The Sphere. The One Direction star is not scheduled to tour this year, so he has no other commitments stopping him.

Adele is no stranger to residencies in Las Vegas, and is currently in the middle of her ‘Weekends With Adele’ at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. 

The English singer/songwriter is 12/1 to swap the 4,100-seat venue to the much bigger venue. 

Could Madonna take her ‘Celebration’ Tour to The Sphere? At 18/1, she’s an outsider to be booked in at The Sphere alongside Billie Eilish (18/1) and Taylor Swift (20/1), whose Eras Tour has taken the world by storm.

Will Rock Continue To Dominate?

The first three acts to perform at The Sphere have been rock bands. If that trend is to continue, then The Killers would be a perfect fit.

The band were formed in Sin City in 2001 and a homecoming residency will be met with universal approval. 

Brandon Flowers’ band missed out on performing at Super Bowl LVIII in the same city, but a residency at The Sphere would make up for that.

The Killers can be backed at 7/1 on betting apps to be the next act booked to perform at The Sphere after Dead & Company. 

Other rock acts that could roll up to The Sphere include Fleetwood Mac at 15/2, Coldplay at 9/1 and the Foo Fighters at 10/1.

Metallica (12/1) will be performing their M72 tour across the world this year, and a few dates in Nevada would be the perfect way to bring that tour to an end.

Imagine Dragons At The Sphere Could Be A Reality

The Imagine Dragons at The Sphere makes perfect sense. 

The four-piece pop rock band are based in Las Vegas and it’s only a matter of time before they get to play at the venue. 

In 2018, the band were Spotify’s most streamed group, so there’s no doubting their ability to fill the venue, and they are 16/1 to follow Dead & Company at The Sphere.

Could the opportunity to perform at The Sphere be enough to tempt some artists to reunite?

While Styles is doing just fine without One Direction, a reunion at The Sphere would go down a storm. One Direction are 14/1 to be announced as the next big act to play at The Sphere.

The Spice Girls’ last gig was in June 2019 at Wembley Stadium, and it would take something very special to get the group back together, either with or without Victoria Beckham. 

Performing at The Sphere would certainly be a fitting venue to reunite. The Spice Girls are 10/1 to take up residency at the world’s newest and coolest concert venue.
