The British tabloids are rekindling those rumors, which we first reported back in September, of a Harry Styles residency at the MSG Sphere.

According to The Sun, the former One Direction singer, 29, had a four-hour meeting with top Sphere  execs after catching U2‘s show at the Sphere earlier this month, and has been offered $50 million for at least 10 shows at the globular marvel.

That meeting probably occurred around Nov. 1, the night U2 singer Bono reportedly tossed a snippet of Styles’ 2017 hit “Sign of the Times” into his rendition of U2’s 1988 hit, “All I Want is You.” (Styles had been photographed in the audience at a U2 Sphere show, though the date was never specified.)

In July, Styles wrapped his most successful tour to date, “Love on Tour,” which logged 169 shows since kicking off in September 2021. U2 wraps its Sphere residency on Feb. 18. No other Sphere concerts are scheduled after that.

In October, Sphere Entertainment CEO James Dolan told Fox News: “We love Harry and whenever Harry wants to come, we’re ready.”

Rumors of Harry’s Sphere talks come after Beyonce was also tipped to follow U2 into the Sphere with a $10 million production. Lady Gaga — who joined U2 on the Sphere stage last month — and Bon Jovi are also said to be jonesing to play the space-age venue.

Ringo in the New

Former Beatles drummer Ringo Starr will bring his All-Starr Band back to the Venetian next year. He last played in the resort’s Venetian Theatre in May.

The more-or-less annual tour, which featured a revolving cast of supporting members when it began 34 years ago, has settled on the relatively stable lineup of guitarists Steve Lukather and Edgar Winter, singer Colin Hay,  bassist Hamish Stuart, and co-drummer Gregg Bissonette for the past dozen or so years.

“I’ve always said I’m my happiest when I’m playing with great musicians, and this band is one of the very best.” Starr is quoted as saying in a Live Nation news release.

Starr, who drummed and sang on the recently chart-topping Beatles “reunion” single, “Now and Then,” will perform six Venetian dates: May 22, 24, 26, 29, and 31, and June 1.

Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 1 at 10 a.m. PST via Ticketmaster, with a presale for those with fan access starting Tuesday, Nov. 28.

Fontainebleau’s First

John Summit will perform the first residency at LIV, Fontainebleau’s nightclub, when it opens on the Las Vegas Strip on Dec. 13. The Chicago DJ — who has performed his techno music at Coachella, and Lollapalooza — appeared through last summer in Vegas exclusively at properties operated by Tao Group Hospitality, and is still featured on its website.
