The ever-enthusiastic Zac Brown couldn’t veil his excitement as he shared, “It’s the greatest canvas ever created, and to be one of the first bands to go in there and do it, this is our masterpiece,” while speaking during an episode of comedian Theo Von’s stimulating YouTube podcast. He saw this as his band’s golden opportunity to demonstrate their tremendous capacity as artists.

The Sphere, an innovative auditorium, witnessed its inaugural residency previously in the fall with U2, then granting the reins to Phish. Next in line is Dead & Company with a scheduled slot from May 16th to July 13th.

The online community voiced a mixed reaction to this news, a metaphorical equivalent to puzzled looks and head tilts. “They are good but not Sphere good,” came a response from Twitter user @elbogz, expressing skepticism underneath the tweet from Las Vegas influencer @vegasstarfish, who first brought this news to light.

On the contrary, for anyone wondering about Zac Brown Band’s credentials, they are an established force to reckon with.
