From Billboard, September 30, 2023:
Bono and The Edge wrapped up “Desire” – also from Rattle and Hum – with a little taste of The Beatles’ “Love Me Do” before letting the audience in on another secret. “Macca is in the house tonight,” Bono announced. “Paul McCartney is here. … Just know that we love you and we’ve stolen a lot of your songs,” he quipped. Bono also acknowledged the Fab Four’s possible early inspiration for Sphere. “Actually, I’m thinking that the Sphere may have come into existence [because of Sphere Entertainment president] Jim Dolan trying to solve the problem that The Beatles started when they played Shea Stadium [in 1965]. Nobody could hear you. You couldn’t hear yourselves. Well, the Sphere’s here – can you hear us?”
Bono referenced The Beatles twice more to wrap up the final song of the night, 2000’s “Beautiful Day,” singing a bit of “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)” (“We hope you have enjoyed the show”) followed by a few lines of “Blackbird” (“All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise”).
Adele, Paul McCartney, LeBron James, Rich Paul, Jeff Bezos and Martin Short were all in attendance at Adele’s Las Vegas residency on September 30, 2023.
