How Accident Happen at the Sphere?

With 18,600 seats, stairs, open flooring, and thousands of people, there are many ways an accident can happen.

The Sphere will be host to all types of bands and events.

Crowds of screaming fans can get excited to see their favorite band in Las Vegas.

Overcrowding: When large groups surge towards the stage, many problems can happen. This can cause trampling, heat exhaustion, and crushing. Concertgoers have been known to push and shove one another, trying to get close to the stage.

Fights: Physical confrontations can lead to injury. If a fight breaks out, guests can be put in a dangerous situation. Fists and elbows can do serious damage to an innocent bystander trying to enjoy the concert. Injuries to the head and face can be damaging.

Flying Objects: There are many objects that can cause injury at a concert. A microphone can come flying off the stage into the crowd. A cell phone dropped off the balcony. Jewelry, food, and drinks can all cause damage. Sometimes the objects are thrown intentionally. Other times, it can be unintentional. Either way, serious injuries can happen from flying objects.

Intoxication: Alcohol can cause a lot of problems. When judgment and coordination are impaired, accidents can happen. Aggressive behavior can put everyone at risk. When alcohol and drugs are mixed together, there is potential for an overdose. An inebriated person can do a lot of harm to themselves and others in attendance.

Hearing injury: This can happen when the music is loud and the ears are unprotected. No one expects an explosion on the stage to blow out their eardrums. Unfortunately, loud decibels of sound at concerts have done serious damage to ticket holders. It is recommended to bring hearing protection when attending any concert. Long-term damage can be life-altering.

Mass Violence: This is an uncomfortable topic to discuss. Mass shootings, stabbings, and bombings have happened before. Unfortunately, Las Vegas has experienced mass violence in the past. Concerts and special events with large groups of people have the potential to turn tragic.


Slip and Fall Accidents at The Sphere

This is one of the most common accidents that can cause injury.

A person receiving some minor bumps and bruises can make a full recovery.

However, injuries from slips, trips, and falls can be some of the worst.

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and spinal injuries may require long-term care in severe cases.

Stairs: The Sphere does not seem to have a bad seat in the place. Getting to the seats can be a risk. Stairs can be very steep at some venues. One mistake can lead to a serious fall. The handrailing and lighting are vital to getting up and down the stairs safely. A defective or faulty product can create a hazardous situation for attendees.

Floors: Uneven surfaces and wet floors are hazardous. Food and drinks are served and will spill on the floor throughout the event. Floors will be extra dangerous if events are on a rainy night in Vegas. Bathrooms can be a dangerous place to be if water spills on the floor. Building operators must be on the lookout for any type of flooring issue. Wet floors should be mopped up and proper warning signage placed. Staff must make sure that debris on the floor is picked up in a timely manner.

Crowded Conditions: Falling in a large crowd can have detrimental results. Accidentally tripping on something or someone is easy to do in large groups. If a person loses their balance, they can get hurt. In the event of an emergency, a stampede situation can quickly evolve. Try to create some personal space when moving through a large crowd. This can be helpful if a fall happens.

Security is a Major Concern at Large Events

Having proper security is vital for the safety of everyone at the Sphere.

That means that they must be properly staffed and trained.

Venues like the Sphere must provide a safe environment for their guests.

If security is lacking, guests are put at risk.

Security must be prepared for threats and potential hazards.

Staff must be qualified, licensed, and experienced in handling large crowds and events.

Security guards who are overzealous can cause injuries to guests.

Their job should be to keep them safe.

Security must be prepared in the event of an emergency situation.

Crowd control is critical to a safe event.

Guests arriving should be entering in an orderly fashion.

When they exit, they should do the same. Crowds need to be monitored.

Communication is one of the main keys to success.

Having adequate security should be a top priority for the owners and operators.

Performers should also feel safe when performing to large crowds at the Sphere.

Large events with 20,000 people can also attract criminals.

Sometimes the attendees can be the target.

Security is there to prevent these dangerous situations from occurring.

This does not always happen. Guests, performers, and employees can all be victims of criminal acts.

Assault, battery, harassment, and theft have all happened at concert venues before in Las Vegas.


Preventative Steps To Avoid Injury

The Sphere has a ‘duty of care’ to provide a safe venue to their customers.

Any arena that invites guests to their property has this obligation.

Some of their responsibilities may include:

  1. Proper maintenance
  2. Routine inspections
  3. Hazards removed
  4. Cleared entrances and walkways
  5. Available emergency exits
  6. Crowd management
  7. Adequate lighting
  8. Prepared for weather conditions
  9. Warning signage


These are just a few steps that the Sphere can take in order to keep their guests safe.

They must be able to respond to threats in a reasonable manner.

If there is a hazardous condition, they must assist the attendee quickly.

Providing first aid to injuries can be the difference between life and death.

If you were injured, it is imperative to get an incident report from the Sphere.

This is important to show proof that the accident occurred on the property.

The Sphere

Madison Square Garden Company (MSG) proudly announced this magnificent venue in 2018.

After years of construction and around $2.3 billion later, it opened in 2023.

Currently owned and operated by Sphere Entertainment Co. It is located just off the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, NV.

U2 was the first band to perform here. If you include all the seating and the floor, the Sphere has a capacity of about 20,000.

It is one of the most technologically advanced concert spaces in the world.

Bringing so many people under one roof can be an amazing experience.

There is always the risk of an accident any time large crowds get together.

The cutting-edge lighting and sound technology create a fully immersive environment.

With steep stairs and a wet floor, it is easy to see how a serious accident can occur.

Balconies and bathrooms can be equally dangerous.

Crowds in arena-type environments have the potential for danger.

A hazardous defect on the property can also cause injury at an event.

No matter how mechanically advanced the property is, there will always be the risk of injury.

An injury accident at the Sphere can cause serious damage.

Medical costs alone can be a major burden. Lost wages can cause financial stress.

Pain and suffering can cause both physical and mental harm.
