In tandem with the opening of U2’s Las Vegas residency ‘U2:UV Achtung Baby Live At Sphere’ on September 29th, the band will launch a special fan portal called ‘Zoo Station: A U2:UV Experience.’
Zoo Station: A U2:UV Experience, designed by U2 and the band’s longtime creative director Gavin Friday, will boast over 12,000 square feet of space across two floors within The Venetian Resort in Las Vegas. Fans will be able to access interactive exhibit space inside Zoo Station, which includes Anton Corbijn Gallery, featuring five decades’ worth of video footage and photography work from photographer and curator Anton Corbin. Fans can also purchase merchandise from the U2 Pop-Up Shop, which will offer music titles from U2, as well as brand-new merchandise.
The ground floor of Zoo Station will hold the gallery, the pop-up shop, and interactive installations, and will be open to the public and free to enter. The top floor will feature Zoo TV Cinema (curated by U2’s The Edge), will show five film screenings daily including rare and unreleased concert footage from international U2 shows, as well as new documentary films, like Beyond The Tour and A Day In The Life Of The Edge. Only ticket-holders will be granted access to to this floor. Visit U2’s Vibee page for more information.
