According to the New York Post, Beyoncé is in talks with the executive chairman of MSG Networks, James Dolan, about producing a $10-million-dollar stage show for the venue in 2024. The pop star is said to have already toured the venue with her manager and mom, Tina Knowles, and her husband, Jay-Z.
Beyoncé’s residency at the new venue would come after U2’s ongoing “U2:UV Achtung Baby” residency, which recently welcomed Lady Gaga for a guest performance, and was extended into February 2024.
While Beyoncé isn’t the only name in the running for a residency at the Sphere — Bon Jovi, Paul McCartney, and Lady Gaga have all “been considered” as well — an artist of her stature would certainly give a good boost to the venue, which cost $2.3 billion to build and reported a $98.4 million loss in the latest financial quarter. Tickets for her “Renaissance World Tour” this past summer were in such high demand, even “obstructed view” seats sold for hundreds of dollars.
