U2 is performing 40 shows in Las Vegas in 2023 and 2024. The show called U2: UV (Ultra Violet) focuses on the album Achtung Baby which is played in full. A newly recorded song celebrating Las Vegas, "Atomic City", was released in advance of these shows and is being played during the performances.

The new venue has seating for 17,500 people, and can accommodate 20,000 people with general admission.

Larry Mullen Jr is undergoing treatment via surgery to fix medical issues caused by years of drumming, and will not be performing at any of these 36 shows. Adam Clayton shared in August, "He's doing what Larry does and that's taking his health very responsibly and he wants to come back, he wants to be able to have a long career and continue his drumming so he's taking care of these injuries." The band will welcome Dutch drummer, Bram van den Berg to play these shows on stage. Larry Mullen is expected to rejoin the band for their next album and tour.

Additionally a pop-up exhibit / shop is also being held at The Venetian while these shows are underway, called Zoo Station.
