Get ready to rattle and hum: U2‘s Las Vegas residency is up and running for 2024. The latest round of shows start on Friday, Feb. 15.

U2’s residency kicked off in Sept. 2023, and it’s gotten even bigger since the launch. Due to high demand, the band added added additional shows to U2: UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere and announced the final dates via Instagram last las year.

Upcoming show dates include Feb. 17, Feb. 18, Feb. 23, Feb. 24, March 1 and March 2.

Citing “unprecedented demand,” the band — who have nearly two dozen Grammys under their belt — first extended the residency last May, with the press release noting that there had been more than 1 million ticket requests at the time.

In September, U2 dropped a new single, “Atomic City,” to coincide with the launch of its new residency. The band released the music video teaser on the Sept. 28, and after a sold-out debut, ticket demand is expected to grow even more.

U2 has extended its residency multiple times, also citing demand for tickets in its decision to tack on more shows.

U2 also played back-to-back shows over Super Bowl weekend and performed live from the Sphere during the 2024 Grammys. The Sin City residency was originally announced in a Super Bowl commercial earlier this year.

“U2 hasn’t played live since December 2019 and we need to get back on stage and see the faces of our fans again,” Bono, The Edge and bassist Adam Clayton said in a previous statement announcing the Las Vegas residency at the new, state-of-the art theater at The Venetian. “And what a unique stage they’re building for us out there in the desert. We’re the right band, Achtung Baby the right album, and Sphere the right venue to take the live experience of music to the next level. That’s what U2’s been trying to do all along with our satellite stages and video installations, most memorably on the ZOO TV Tour, which ended in Tokyo 30 years ago this fall. Sphere is more than just a venue, it’s a gallery and U2’s music is going to be all over the walls.”

The band gave fans a deeper look inside the epic Sphere during an interview with Apple Music’s Zane Low.

“Walking in an actually seeing our stage there and seeing our instruments and light and the finished building was quite a moment,” U2’s The Edge explained to Low. “That’s when it really got real. When you’re actually imagining there’s going to be person in each one of these seats. The proximity is incredibly intimate that’s what so amazing. It’s only 18,000 (seats) but everyone is going to get this perfect view of the stage. Unfortunately, with this incredible visual we’re going to have our work cut out to get people’s attention. It’s like a throw down, how do you make this personal connection in this big venue?”

Opening night of the residency included a tribute to the band’s founding member Larry Mullen Jr. who missed the first night. Paul McCartney, Dr. Dre, Snoop Doog, Diplo, Luke Wilson, Jon Hamm, Dakota Fanning, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, Elizabeth Banks and Josh Duhamel were some of the celebs at the show opening night. Bono also paid tribute to Sinead O’Conner with a performance of “Nothing Compares 2 U” during a show and Harry Styles was spotted at the residency last November.

Katy Perry, Orlando Bloom, Oprah Winfrey and Gail King are some of the other celebs that have also been spotted taking in the show.
