U2's Sphere residency kicked off in September 2023, and opening night saw the band power through 22 hits, including "One," "With or Without You" and "Where the Streets Have No Name." The band also paid homage to Vegas with a performance of "Atomic City," having filmed the music video for the song in the city earlier that month.

Group members Bono and The Edge leaned into Vegas themes at times during the show, having flashed images of Elvis Presley on the walls of the venue at one point. “Elvis has definitely not left this building,” Bono, 63, said during one moment in the show.

In addition to listening to the famed band, the thousands of fans gathered inside the venue marveled at the 16K wraparound LED screen, 167,000 speakers and even the five humanoid robots greeting guests in the foyer.
