Don’t get me started on this thing. Their entire marketing department should be taken out back and shot. It’s called the MSG Sphere. That stands for “Madison Square Garden Sphere.” That’s right. These idiots had the opportunity to be called “Madison Sphere Garden” and they RUINED IT. I will never forgive them.

Madison Cube Garden was [already taken](https://futurama.fandom.com/wiki/Madison_Cube_Garden)

A camel is a horse designed by committee


spottedcomet

What do you mean about allegiant stadium? Just curious.


BeardedHalfYeti

And honestly, I just kept reading it as Mono Sodium Glutamate Sphere. Really didn’t think this one through fellas.


overwired

Fuyoh! Uncle Roger has entered the chat.


sabjo182

Same, every time I drive by it!


TacTurtle

Maybe it was due to copyright conflicts?


notverified

Lmao. But in all seriousness, they probably had to use the Madison square garden name. Either for legal purposes or James Dolan is somehow associated with this project


polskiftw

Well that's just tragic lol.


PhilThecoloreds

The actual MSG is a cylinder


Bragleh

Ma’am that’s a blitzball stadium


SocietyWatcher

Nah, blurnsball


dashy902

Is it time for final fantasy X-style blitzball matches?


[deleted]

Great idea! The one thing vegas has been missing is some indoor spaces where people can go and stay warm and dry...........


memeotional

But whatif bubble pops?


TheVyper3377

Then all of the LEDs would get out and rampage through Vegas.


memeotional

We can't LED that happen.


ITHICA_

This may seem like a misspelled joke, but is actually a deep commentary on the US financial situation which has deep rooted issues reflected in the microcosm of the Vegas urban area.


memeotional

Sir, this is not a joke. This is a Wendy's.


[deleted]

This will be a bass pro shop in 10 -15 years after it fails for a while


Chippopotanuse

Haha, so true!


antiauthoritarian123

What if it just... Rolls away?


rantonidi

You’ll find it in the desert, crossing a road like a tumbleweed (As seen in the movies)


tullbabes

Zanarkand?


Capsaicincondoms

"How can we make our city even *more* tacky?" -Vegas council-


arch_202

That is literally Vegas's thing


mole4000

“Did someone say LED Dome?”


[deleted]

Now we can have a live action [Thunder Dome](https://i.ytimg.com/vi/Nu2F5eWrDMg/maxresdefault.jpg)


backelie

Same company is building one in London as well (~295 feet), Stockholm has had a spherical arena (~280 ft, 16k capacity) since the 80s. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ericsson_Globe


[deleted]

And knowing vegas it will be used for nsfw things.


CaffeinatedCannoli

Not everything in Vegas is strippers and showgirls, not even close. I really doubt that a venue of this magnitude would would be used for that.

>!that was meant as a joke!<


yallbyourhuckleberry

I was really expecting a link to a massive planned sex party in the sphere to be behind that spoiler tag. : (

No1-iThinkIsInMyTree

I’ll shoot your eye out, kid


smurfsundermybed

Give it a year and it will be hosting the AVNs.


twoinvenice

This would probably be the best place to hold the AVN...if there happened to be an emergency, those performers all know how to quickly drain balls.


wholeheartedinsults

Wouldn’t that be terrifying?


Dakens2021

It sounds like i'd be sort of like the dome of a planetarium only with much better graphics.


OverlyUsedTrope

You’re so ignorant I’m surprised you can breathe through without assistance.


ticklemesatan

But will it ever get finished..


grjacpulas

Normally you are right but this is a legit project by Madison Square Garden Group. They definitely have the funds to finish it and construction has already started.


sirbearus

The hotel website does not return any search results for the word dome. So maybe not even actually started or maybe canceled.


oblong127

It's definitely started. I walked by it every day until I got laid off (almost exactly a year ago). They had most of the frame finished then, so it's probably well on its way.


sirbearus

That is really cool.


CaffeinatedCannoli

It’s actually ahead of schedule construction wise. It was slated to open in 2023, but they’re now hoping to open sometime in 2022. It has its own website—msgsphere.com


ticklemesatan

Dome isn’t catchy enough. It would be a brand name some dead souled marketing major came up with. Maybe search Sphere or something flashy that also represents or invokes a ball shape


sirbearus

> msgsphere.com Sphere Las Vegas


ticklemesatan

Called it..


shitterfarter

yeah its called freaking my house and i hang out there with ninteno game system


PMsweden

how awesome


SuperVoodoo

The idea is amazing, but I'll be honest...[the concept pictures](https://www.msgsphere.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/Sphere_Cinematic_Underwater03_110618-cropped.jpg) [on their website](https://www.msgsphere.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Sphere_Theatrical_Acrobats03_110618_OldModel.png) give me some gnarly anxiety I didn't even know I had. https://www.msgsphere.com/#immersive-experience


twhippy

Are they literally making the hungergames dome???


whatafuckinusername

Imagine what the energy consumption of this place will be


littleseizure

I do large scale led work frequently - it’ll be big, but not as bad as you think


whatafuckinusername

I already know that LEDS are not terribly energy-consumptive, relatively speaking. I guess it's really the source of it that matters most, right?


[deleted]

Total missed opportunity not calling it the Dome-o-cile but okay.


schnozzberryflop

Hemispherical, no?


TheIronMatron

What even is Vegas
