LAS VEGAS, NV - Construction on MSG Sphere will be temporarily stopping work on the state of the art venue east of the strip over the next two weeks due to the global effects of the coronavirus pandemic.

In a press release today, the Madison Square Garden Company said "The widespread global effects of COVID-19 have resulted in significant impediments to construction that are beyond the Company’s control, including disruptions to its supply chain. As a result, the Company will implement a temporary suspension of construction, with all work ceasing over approximately the next two weeks. The Company looks forward to quickly and efficiently resuming construction as soon as practicable. As a result of this delay, the Company does not expect to achieve its goal of opening the venue in calendar year 2021."
