Leading American media outlets, including the Associated Press and CNN, reported on the successful debut of the Sphere. This architectural marvel, touted as the world’s largest spherical building, captivated spectators by showcasing video content on its LED screen, known as the Exosphere, even before the completion of the interior. The screening, which commemorated the Independence Day of the United States on July 4, attracted widespread attention.

Initially, the project was a collaborative endeavor between the Las Vegas Sands casino company and MSG, as reported by the Associated Press.
“We are confident in its success,” stated James Dolan, chairman of MSG Group. “People are going to love it.” The MSG Group, known for owning sports teams such as the NBA’s New York Knicks and the NHL’s New York Rangers, also manages renowned venues like Madison Square Garden and Radio City Music Hall in New York.
