Madison Square Garden Co. wants to make every seat great with new Vegas

LAS VEGAS - The Madison Square Garden Company used a futuristic presentation at Radio City Music Hall in New York City to unveil the MSG Sphere arena Thursday night.  

The MSG Sphere's exterior is a dome that features 190,000 linear feet of LED lighting, or roughly 36 miles end-to-end, to enable it to be lit up or display images and video customized for each event that is taking place, USA Today said.

The first two such arenas are scheduled to open in 2020 in Las Vegas and London. The company expects to break ground on the 18,500-capacity Las Vegas venue near the Sands' Venetian and Palazzo complex later this year.

The spherical arena is expected to be a game changer for concert goers because it's expected to give everyone attending an experience.

According to Variety magazine, the venues' features are as followed:

  • Spherical shape
  • Height of more than 360 feet and equator width of more than 500 feet
  • Technologies that include a fully programmable exterior, creating a digital showcase for brands, artists, events, and partners.
  • An interior bowl that features the largest and highest current resolution media display.
  • A custom spherical camera system.
  • A dynamically adaptive acoustics system that will deliver crystal-clear audio to every guest.
  • A new architecture for wireless connectivity.
