Harry Styles is the third act rumored to follow U2 at The Sphere, after the Eagles and Phish. According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the former One Direction vocalist is tipped to launch his residency in March 2024.

This makes sense because Styles, the Eagles, and U2 are all managed by Irving Azoff, the music giant who is reportedly a paid Sphere consultant charged with its talent search. This is despite his apparent conflict of interest as part-owner of the Oak View Group, which plans to build a $10 billion resort with a $1 billion NBA-ready arena three miles south of the Strip.

Phish is shortlisted because frontman Trey Anastasio was the first to test out The Sphere’s immersive audio system for an acoustic solo show he performed at New York’s Beacon Theatre in August 2022.

Journey will play at the Michelob Ultra Arena inside Mandalay Bay on March 15. Tickets, $35-$149.50, go on sale at 10 a.m. on Friday, September 29. A venue presale begins Thursday, September 28 at 10 a.m. using the password “FAITHFULLY.”
