When the doors open for the Sphere’s inaugural events — U2’s “U2:UV Achtung Baby” concert Friday and Oct. 6’s “Postcard from Earth” film by Darren Aronofsky — bring plenty of money for parking.
On-site parking at the Sphere through Ticketmaster is limited because the grounds are still a construction zone for mid-November’s Formula One Las Vegas Gran Prix race.
However, there’s still one lot on-site, just southeast of the building, with prices of $100 for U2 and $47.50 for “Postcard.” An adjacent valet lot will cost $125 for U2 and $72.50 for the film. Reservations are available through Ticketmaster.
Adjacent parking garages at the Howard Hughes Center will be open for Sphere events, according to Brandon Myers, general manager of LAZ Parking. Those garages have more than 2,000 spaces.
Garages are open at 3763, 3773, 3883 and 3993 Howard Hughes Parkway. Myers said parking is $70 for U2 and $30 for “Postcard.”
Myers said there would be crosswalks and walkways for pedestrians crossing Manhattan Street from the Hughes Center to the Sphere.
Parking spaces can be purchased at the LAZ website, vegaseventparking.com.
Paid parking also is available at nearby resorts. The Venetian and Palazzo and Wynn and Encore Las Vegas have indicated they offer public parking, but have not said whether they would raise rates on dates of Sphere events.
Wynn has indicated the daily parking fee would be $20 per day in its two self-parking lots. Valet parking will be $40 per day.
Nonhotel guests rates at Venetian and Palazzo garages begin at $15 for up to four hours then $18 hourly up to 24 hours, Monday through Thursday, and $23 per day Friday through Sunday, according to a new policy. Valet parking is still $35 daily.
