MSG Sphere would create thousands of jobs, and we want to inspire the next generation of talented young people in East London to think about a career in music and live events. That’s why we created MSG Next Generation.
Launched in November 2018 with a week-long tour, we gave 300 students from seven local schools a chance to learn from some of the industry’s most experienced tour managers, production crews and technical specialists.
If our plans are approved, MSG Entertainment would build on the success of this tour by:
• Exploring the possibility of partnering with local schools and colleges
• Creating a programme that will provide development and training opportunities to young people in Newham over the longer-term
• Focusing on a range of technical, artistic, hospitality and managerial skills, all of which will be needed at MSG Sphere
• Ensuring this skills training prepares them to be successful in an industry in which technology continues to evolve
