U2 Confirms Las Vegas Residency in Super Bowl 2023 Commercial - Watch Now!

U2 is heading to Las Vegas!

During the 2023 Super Bowl on Sunday (February 12), the band confirmed in a commercial that they will be headlining a new residency in Vegas.

The show – “U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at the Sphere” – will be held at the MSG Sphere at The Venetian, a new venue that opens later this year.

The residency will mark U2‘s first live shows in four years, though it will not include drummer Larry Mullens Jr., who is undergoing surgery and rehabilitation.

“It’s going to take all we’ve got to approach the Sphere without our bandmate in the drum seat, but Larry has joined us in welcoming Bram van den Berg who is a force in his own right,” Bono, the Edge, and Adam Clayton shared in a statement.

U2 continued, “The Sphere show has been in the works for a long time. We don’t want to let people down, least of all our audience… the truth is we miss them as much as they appear to miss us… our audience was always the fifth member of the band. Bottom line, U2 hasn’t played live since December 2019 and we need to get back on stage and see the faces of our fans again. And what a unique stage they’re building for us out there in the desert.”

“We’re the right band, ACHTUNG BABY the right album, and the Sphere the right venue to take the live experience of music to the next level,” U2 added. That’s what U2’s been trying to do all along with our satellite stages and video installations, most memorably on the ZOO TV Tour, which ended in Tokyo 30 years ago this Fall.”

U2 will be releasing their new album Songs of Surrender on March 17.
