    The Sphere is the best and coolest concert venue I’ve ever been to, it is a whole new way of experiencing your favorite band. The huge screen and circular design make The Sphere unlike any other venue (read more) in the world. The Sphere has excellent sound from side to side and front to back throughout the 100, 200, 300 and 400 levels. In my opinion the best views of the entire screen is in the GA, lower 100, 200, 300 and 400 levels. Some of the other rad and unique features of the Sphere include the design of the building and speaker system, excellent sight lines of the band from all over, seats that vibrate, a grand concourse with one of the longest escalators in the World and did I mention that massive screen?!?! While being the coolest venue in the World there are still a few downsides. If you are behind row 20 in the 100 level your view of the giant screen will be obstructed up to 70-80% but the views of the band are great from anywhere. And a few of the upper rows in the 200 level have slightly obstructed views of the screen as well. Like most venues, the rows of seats don’t allow much room for over expressive dancing but you have a huge screen of coolness to look at and the seats do vibrate. Also the 300 and 400 levels can get steep which may also hinder your dancing. The security will let people go take quick pictures of the screen in the aisles but besides that they like to keep the aisles clear. There is not much room to dance or stand in the aisles. The bathroom lines do get long at times (and I heard some people got kicked out for using the wrong bathroom so I don’t recommend doing that). The price of parking at the Sphere varies for each show ($60-$100), walking or taking a ride share is recommended. And there was no Shakedown parking lot for the Phish shows. The entrance at the Bridge Entrance on the west side of the Sphere can get very congested at times and take over 15-20 minutes to get in. The security screening is very light, just remove items from pockets and walk through scanners. Overall it will be one of the coolest and most unique concert experiences in your life. I highly recommend seeing anyone you can there. Have a great show and stay safe.

    The only negative thing I experienced at the Sphere is that there are not enough bathrooms. The lines got a little ridiculous at times. Also, security doesn’t really let you chill in the venue post (read more) show very long. Water is sold in a very cold, metallic type bottle that is $7. They take the bottle tops of the water though there are cup holders on each seat.

    I recently saw Phish here. The sound is loud and crystal clear. The whole facility is new and most every detail was well thought out. Our seats were in section 310 row 4. There were amazing views (read more) from this section. The one downside is that it was hard to see the band. This doesn’t matter so much at the Sphere where most of one’s focus is on the music and the visuals. Plentiful options all around the venue for food and drinks. They even sell hard cider at the Taphaus on the first floor. The staff was friendly and super helpful. There are escalators to get to the upper sections which are really long, steep and kind of cool because there is cool artwork around the venue. Entering through the Venetian walkway proved to be the easiest option for us. Shorter lines and once it is super hot outside in Vegas it should be helpful but may get pretty crowded.

    This is the way music should be experienced. Truly mind blowing. Staff is friendly. Facilities are clean. Seating/standing is ample. Easy to get a beverage (in person or self serve).

    Sell your shoes and see anything you can here. Preferably The Phish from Vermont.
    The obstructed view in the back of the 100s is a very slight bummer, but it is close to the stage and the sound is (read more) better than I’ve heard at any other large venue.
