The world’s largest music and entertainment venue will be coming to the Las Vegas Strip thanks to the Sands Corporation and Madison Square Garden Company.
The two are joining forces, with a few other partners, to build a 400,000 square-foot site that will be the world’s largest built specifically for music and entertainment.
The executive chairman of The Madison Square Garden Company, James Dolan, said that the company believes that there is a demand for venues specifically focused on music and entertainment.
The venue will be on Sands Avenue, between Manhattan Street and Koval Lane, and it will have direct access to the Venetian and Palazzo hotel-casinos.
The centre will have 17.500 seats that will face the front of the stage and also have scalable seating capacities to accommodate a wide variety of shows.
“At a time when significant conversations are taking place about the city’s future tourism needs, a state-of-the-art venue designed, built and exclusively dedicated to bringing the world’s greatest musical and entertainment acts to Las Vegas is the type of development we should all be excited about” said Sheldon G. Adelson, Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO.
The venue will make use of the latest technology to achieve the best possible acoustics. Thanks to this the space will be able to deliver new and innovative experiences for both performers and the audience.
Sans and MSM are working with Azoff, Live Nation Entertainment and Oak View Group on the project. They are all confident that the result will be a world-class performance venue that will attract people from around the world.
“This new venue will pioneer the next generation of fan experiences and content development, and raise the bar for innovative branding opportunities,” said Tim Leiweke, CEO of Oak View Group.
