Media Review:

U2: Elevation - Live In Boston

By Mark Reed, DrownedinSound.com

And so the world's biggest band, and the one who've managed to last longer than near enough anyone else without going completely shit - though the most recent album seems to have been treading water somewhat - release their first long form DVD. To make up for the fact that tickets were astronomically overpriced, and venues obscenely small for their audience (or, how shall one put it, about 10% of the people who bought the album and wanted to see them managed to get tickets), there's more than enough U2 here.

Firstly a very well put-together, slick but accurate live video that matches the alleged intimacy of the tour and moves away from the spectacle of the TV to the power of the musicians within the group. Secondly a half hour documentary that seems intent on interviewing anybody who has anything to do with U2 without actually revealing anything about the group at all, which is one of the most curious things about them, the fact that after 23 years they've managed to maintain both the same lineup and not gone shit. Even if Bono's heart-on-sleeve sincerity is a bit erm, grating. God, he really really does mean it doesn't he?

Thirdly you get a multi-angle version of the same gig, a Bootleg Fancam shot on cheap VHS is the venue completely with wonky angles and crap sound, and a Directorcam - who wants to watch the control room for the video cameras alongside the director barking instructions into the mikes for "more closeups! rocking!" - which is completely superflous.

On top of those you get three extra live tracks, including a sort-of-demo of Stuck In A Moment, and a smattering of trailers for other live videos and DVD-links that I can't be bothered to mess around with. Overall, packed to the gills with value, but not entirely necessary to anyone unless you love U2. And if you love U2, this'll make you a very happy bunny.

T he Las Vegas Strip's most spectacular venue for music headliners is Sphere Entertainment's  ( SPHR )  $2.3 billion Sphere which opened Sept. 29, 2023, with superstar rock band U2 taking the stage for its 40-show U2/UV Achtung Baby Live at the Sphere residency.

Dead & Company Prove Las Vegas’ Sphere Isn’t Just for U2, but Them, Too, in Residency’s Astounding Opening Night: Concert Review

Dead & Company's 'Dead Forever - Live At Sphere' concert review vegas

Memo to anyone who “isn’t really into the Dead” but has been cajoled by a friend or loved one into attending an upcoming Dead & Company concert, as a plus-one: Your chances of enjoying the show just went up by approximately 10,000%.

Let’s not stop there, though. If you’re a faithful Deadhead with tickets for “Dead Forever — Live at Sphere ,” the Las Vegas residency that is taking place off the Strip over the next eight weekends, you already enjoy insurmountable odds of being fully invested in any show. But expect your already preordained ecstasy level to go up by 50, 70… ah, sure, let’s say 100%.

U2’s residency still holds an edge in terms of the degree of artistry employed for the big screen; the effects employed by Dead & Company are sometimes (emphasis on sometimes) a little cruder in the animation or less ambitious in the conceptualization. That doesn’t really matter. There are a couple of setpieces that feel like the dazzling equal of anything in U2’s show, and when other pieces go for something far simpler or goofier (like a giant rainbow with live images of Bob Weir , et al., underneath the arch), they’re still wholly effective.

All of this to say: If you were knocked out by what U2 accomplished in the fall and worried that some augmentation might be necessarily in order to effectively give Dead & Company’s setup a handicap… well, proceed with whatever microdosing you feel is warranted, but “Dear Forever” is a stone-cold-sober knockout.

Still, a few moments in Thursday’s show felt so signature that it’s hard to believe they would not be repeated in some form every night in the engagement. One of these arrived with the second number Thursday, “Mississippi Half-Step,” and maybe the fact that the visuals of San Francisco accompanied a song that evokes the South bodes well for the filmic accompaniment to be used on different songs over the engagement. Fans first saw a shot of quaint SF row homes — helpfully subtitled “Haight Ashbury,” for any newbies in this world — which then panned out over the neighborhood, the city, the west coast and finally the earth, with convincing enough photorealism that you could probably talk either a kid or a stoner into believing that it was the world’s most technically advanced drone shot. That journey, from the seat of the 1960s counterculture into the reaches of outer-space culture, reversed itself during the penultimate number, “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door,” which started its trip aloft in the cosmos and ended up knocking on 710 Ashbury St.’s door.

Another piece that feels most integral to the show, as first seen, is an epic-length animation of the Grateful Dead’s Steal Your Face skeleton, rising from the grave, doing a little jig and grinningly mounting a motorcycle to go journeying through a psychedelic landscape. (The audience probably would have been happy to watch that dude all night.)

A highlight that will almost certainly be a nightly feature, however else the setlist may experience total turnover, is the visual sequence that accompanies Mickey Hart’s traditional mid-act-2 “Drums”/”Space” percussion quasi-solo (now augmented by Jay Lane as the second drummer in place of the apparently now-retired Bill Kreutzmann). This section, in which the rest of the band takes six, lasted 16 minutes during Thursday’s show, and not a second of that was wasted visually, starting with a phalanx of hundreds of animated percussion instruments that made rare use of Sphere’s “ceiling” as well as every other square foot. (Drummers of the world may want to sell off spare parts of their kits just to buy some secondary-market tickets to come out and see this extravagant celebration of everything that was ever built to be struck.) Eventually all those instruments gave way to visuals that were more abstract — along with a few random shots of downhill LSD skiing — before landing firmly in the Milky Way. Speaking as someone who has prayed for a lot of drum solos to be over, it actually felt slightly anticlimactic when the full band returned to the stage.

If not much has been said yet about the band’s place in all this, that’s coming — first of all, through a mention of how ingeniously the big screen does (or quite often doesn’t) depict the players on stage. If you’re a truly veteran concertgoer, maybe you’ve experienced what feels like the tyranny of the overhead screens at major shows, where it feels like our attention is being forced away from the figures on stage to their LED avatars at every moment. “Dead Forever — Live at Sphere” achieves a healthy balance for this, similar to what went down at the U2 residency, but with just a lot more running time available for some operator to decide whether we should be looking at, say, John Mayer ‘s hands or face or none of the above at any given time or not. Each song’s design provided a different template for where to fit in shots of the musicians, of any, giving us just enough breaks from their grizzled faces that they became a welcome sight whenever they popped up as dexterous 50-foot giants again.

The designers and operators made smart use of split-screen effects, although there was never anything so basic as an actual, literal split screens, but other frameworks in which to place two opposing images. Sometimes the portrayals of the live band were really diffuse — like the moment during Hart’s epic “Drums” when hundreds of tiny images of his playing filled the vast expanse. On a very few occasions, the production just went with one huge widescreen image over the stage. This was particularly useful for catching and magnifying some of the interplay between band members, most of which took place between Mayer and fan-favorite keyboardist Jeff Chimenti, two guys who like to egg each other on with some mugging when their parts align. (OK, Mayer does most of the mugging, and Chimenti plays the beatific straight man… but it’s delightful when it’s captured as beautifully as it was Thursday.)

The six-piece band, as it now stands, can fairly be said to be on fire… but not too flammable, because things have to be paced over four hours. The photography on the overhead screens is necessarily more static a lot of the time than it was for U2, because when a song lasts 10 minutes or more, the visual for that needs to be something you can relax into, not a Zoo TV-style assault. We didn’t catch the recent single weekend Phish did at Sphere, and jam-band heads will no doubt be weighing in on the relative pacing of the visuals assembled for these two bands. What we do know is that just about every choice made for Dead & Company felt just right — not doing anything to detract from the jazz interplay of the band members at their expansive best, but hardly lazy about giving periodic wakeup calls to an audience that came to Sphere not just to lounge, but to thrill-seek.

And sometimes you need pure nostalgia and sentiment. The show’s end brought a montage of black-and-white photos of Dead band members and associated personalities, living or dead. And it was a sweet instance of using the highest tech humanly available to remind the audience that this is a gathering of family unlike virtually anything else in rock. There’s no mistaking that everyone on-stage and in the audience is getting on in years, and not taking any of this commingling for granted. Not a word was uttered from the stage during the four hours, so it’s not as if Bob Weir is going to step up and celebrate the occasion, when it’s understood by all anyway — this residency coming after what was billed as the close of the final Dead & Company tour last summer.

When a long, strange trip it’s been… and in the vast expanse of Sphere, now, what a long, tall and wide trip. If this has a chance of being a last stand, attending fans will go out happy, crying and overstimulated.

Michael Block explains why he uses a 2001 Odyssey 2-ball putter covered in lead tape

Change Text Size

GolfWRX.com

The switch was especially significant for Block because it meant that he finally changed out of irons that he was playing for over a decade.

Still squarely in his bag, however, is an even older club that came out in 2001. Block still uses an original Odyssey White Hot 2-Ball putter, which first hit the retail market 23 years ago.

Block’s Odyssey White Hot 2-ball is unique for two main reasons:

1. It has a sharpie-drawn line on the crown for an added alignment feature.

2. It’s covered in lead tape, both on the sole of the club and in the putter’s channel between the crown and the sole.

On Tuesday at the 2024 Charles Schwab Challenge, PGATOUR.com caught up with Block to talk equipment, where he revealed why he uses so much lead tape on his classic putter.

“The lead tape on the putter, I’ve done this with all my putters,” Block said. “I really feel like most putters when they come out of a store, they’re very, very light. I like to have good tempo in my putting stroke, and I feel when I can really feel the weight in the head my tempo…has a lot more flow to it. I don’t rush my backstroke. When I do that, I tend to putt a little better. It’s all because of feel, and slowing down my tempo with the putter.”

Adding lead tape to his putter helps achieve a heavier overall weight, and a heavier swing weight, too.

For amateurs, this is a trick that’s easy to try for yourself, and it will only cost you about $8-15 for a roll of lead tape at your nearest sporting goods store.

In general, heavier putter heads can feel slightly more stable, or smoother, than lighter putter heads throughout the stroke because they require less manipulation, or force, to achieve the intended speed of the putt. Heavier putter heads require less energy to be applied throughout the putting stroke, which can effectively slow down the tempo and the hands, as Block spoke about on Tuesday.

A common rule of thumb used in the equipment world is that heavier putter heads are effective for controlling speed on fast greens, whereas lighter putter heads are better to use on slower putting greens, where a faster-paced stroke tempo can be beneficial. Tiger Woods , for example, tends to add lead tape to his putter on slower greens, and take it off when he plays faster greens.

The best way to find out what putter weight is right for you is to simply try out different weights. With your current putter and a roll of lead tape handy, try hitting putts where you progressively add more lead tape to the head, until the feel matches your preference. The great thing about lead tape is that you can always remove it if you’ve gone too far.

Maybe for you it’s not necessary to add any lead tape, or maybe, like Block, you find it best to add a whole heap of the substance. It’s all about finding that right feel on the greens.
