U2 have finally landed the floating baby head that loomed over the Super Bowl with tickets dropping for their “U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere” Las Vegas residency. As the title suggests, the Irish band’s latest set will celebrate their 1991 LP Achtung Babywhile also ushering in the Strip’s new state-of-the-art performance venue MSG Sphere at The Venetian, as previewed in the tour’s announcement video.
“U2 hasn’t played live since December 2019 and we need to get back on stage and see the faces of our fans again,” the group shared in a statement. “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 Sphere the right venue to take the live experience of music to the next level.”
