U2 announces a special Las Vegas exhibit ahead of their Sphere residency

Along with the first-ever Vegas F1 race, the most talked-about event in the city this fall will be U2’s residency at the brand-new MSG Sphere beginning on the 29th of this month. To go along with the gigs, the band has announced Zoo Station: A U2:UV Experience, a 12,000 square-foot interactive exhibit that will take up two floors of The Venetian, which is the closest hotel to The Sphere. (Well, it’s the only hotel with direct access to the venue.)

What will it include?

  • A retrospective gallery of Anton Corbijn’s photography and videos.
  • A pop-up shop with tons of exclusive merch. ZOO-TV Cinema, featuring some short films curated by The Edge, including rare and unreleased concert footage.
  • A life-sized subway car (Zoo Station is a stop on Berlin’s underground).
  • A vintage Trabant (those awful East German cars that were used as lighting rigs during the ZOO-TV Tour.
  • The “Satellite of Love Media Station.” I have no idea what that is.

The exhibit opens September 28, the day before the residency begins and will be available from 11 am to 9pm daily. More details here.
