U2's Sphere residency coincides with the 33rd anniversary of Achtung Baby, their 1991 album

The band's Sphere residency comes on the heels of the 33-year anniversary of their 1991 album, Achtung Baby, which is considered to be one of the best albums by the band. To note, its live tour, Zoo TV, solidified the band's reputation as the pioneers of multimedia concerts.

Speaking about their collaboration with Sphere in an exclusive interview with Fox News, the band elaborated on the promise held by the venue for music artists:

"It’s technology that has never been available. We can literally in sonic terms, but also in visual terms, have our audience not kind of be looking at the show, but be in the middle of the show and in the middle of the sound. It’s sound all around you."

The Edge continued:

"I’m already starting to think about the mixes and our songs and think about how this spatial audio could come into its own in terms of just where we place different parts of our sound"

The full list of dates and venues for the residency is given below:

More about U2 and their career

The Irish band from the very beginning of their career established themselves as a live band. The band began their grand-scale multimedia concerts with the Boy Tour in 1981, which was in support of their debut studio album.

The band is known for its exploration of social and political themes, often written in response to then-current events. For instance, the band wrote their hit single, Mothers of the Disappeared, in support of Salvadorean women whose children were killed or forcibly disappeared by the government during the country's civil war.

The band has been involved in a number of philanthropic and activist ventures, most notably the Band Aid and Live Aid concerts aimed at providing relief to victims of the 1983-1985 Ethiopian Famine.

They also released the 2000 single, Walk On, in support of Myanmar's pro-democracy leader, Aung San Suu Kyi.
