“Well, they will, I want to say how much I loved that U2 show. First and foremost, it was really incredible. And I’m a fan. I think it’s the way they were using. The content was different based on who they are as artists. I think you will see some some video on the screens, but it will be, a little bit more deconstructed.”

“It’s going to show the power of the Sphere. You know, very many a lot of artists are going to come in here and they’re going to do great things, and I think the venue will grow with each artist.”

“Well, it’s it’s extremely, unique to any venue that we’ve played before. One of the things that we’ve tried to do is sculpt our show so that we can be the band that we always are and, you know, play to our strengths while simultaneously using the technology to kind of expand the elements of the show that, you know, like the adventure and the and the and the, breaking free of boundaries kind of elements of the show. And I think we’ve done that, to the best of our ability at least.”

“Our world is not going to be that different. Here’s an exciting thing that happened. We did take a lot of the speakers and on stage sound, and we had to get rid of them. That’s just something that you have to do. If you looked at U2’s stage, there was nothing up there and the drums were wrapped in plexiglass. That’s because the sound system goes completely behind the band.”

“Our fans are really smart and really involved, and we wanted to take a night or so for people to figure out what we were doing, playing a lot of Easter eggs and things like that.”

“We’re a very different band. And – there were a number of reasons. The first is that we’ve never repeated a set and we didn’t want to start now. So we created four unique Sphere shows – ttop to bottom. In order. There was a moment where we were discussing adding shows, because the tickets blew out pretty hard. And we decided as a team that they would be good, but not necessarily astounding, which is the level that we wanted to operate at. Unless we just repeated the exact same show over.”
