With U2‘s UV Achtung Baby residency wrapping up in February, executive chairman of MSG Networks, James Dolan is eyeing the next artist to take the stage at the high-tech MSG Sphere in Las Vegas. Per the New York Post, Beyoncé, fresh off the RENAISSANCE tour which closed last month, might be the next big name to grace the stage at the $2.3 billion-USD venue.
While details still remain scarce, Beyoncé is reported to have toured the venue already. Jay-Z and her manager and mom, Tina Knowles, are also reported to have visited the venue as well. The singer’s team is allegedly asking for a hefty $10 million budget – roughly the same as U2 – to produce the immersive show.
However, the New York Post does note that Beyoncé is not the only star in talks to take the stage. Other talent including Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, and Lady Gaga, who recently showed out at a U2 show, have all “been considered” as well.
Stay tuned to Hypebeast for more details as they surface.
