U2 Takes the 2024 Grammys to ‘Atomic City’ From Las Vegas’ Sphere

U2 took center stage at the 2024 Grammy Awards Sunday (Feb. 4) and performed “Atomic City” from Sphere in Las Vegas, where recording cameras were allowed inside the venue for the first time. 

The Sphere has been the home base for the legendary Irish rock group since September 2023, when they first began their residency. The group was in tip-top shape as they performed their latest record, “Atomic City,” which became their 14th No. 1 on Adult Alternative Airplay in November. Following their performance, U2 frontman Bono presented the best pop vocal album nominees, with Taylor Swift’s Midnights winning. 

As for the quartet’s upcoming string of performances for its U2: UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere residency, the band will continue through the spring after announcing new dates in December. The show will now run through March 2. U2 will also be playing back-to-back shows during Super Bowl weekend. During an interview with Zane Lowe in December, the group gave fans a glimpse of what consisted of the Sphere. 

“Walking in and actually seeing our stage there and seeing our instruments and light and the finished building was quite a moment,” U2’s The Edge relayed to Lowe. “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?”
