Phish are the next major act booked to play Las Vegas’ eye-popping Sphere venue. The band announced on Thursday (Nov. 30) that they will do a four-show run at the building from April 18-21, 2024, with each night set to feature a unique setlist and visuals.

“From the moment we first heard about Sphere and its potential, we’ve been dreaming up ways to bring our show to this breathtaking canvas,” Trey Anastasio, Phish guitarist and vocalist said in a statement. “We’re thrilled to present this completely unique experience to Phish fans.”


Known for switching things up every show, the band promised that the Sphere gigs will continue that tradition, while adding a “once-in-a-lifetime audio-visual experience” into the mix; they also noted that these will be the only Sphere shows by Phish in 2024.

The mind-bending globe-shaped performance space features a 160,000 sq. foot LED display inside the main venue, which wraps up, over and around the audience for a fully immersive experience in cutting-edge 16K x 16K resolution.

Ticket requests for the Phish run (April 18, 19, 20 and 21) now open here, and will stay open through noon ET on Dec. 11; all remaining tickets will go on sale to the general public beginning Dec. 15 at 1 p.m. ET.

The venue’s first resident artist, U2, wrapped their four leg of the U2: UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere residency on Nov. 4, with Billboard Boxscore reporting that the 17 show grossed $109.8 million and sold 281,000 tickets, marking the fastest-grossing residency in Boxscore history.
