first_imgPhoto: Andrew Blackstein On Friday night, Phish made their triumphant return to New York City’s Madison Square Garden, opening up their sold-out four-night run of New Year’s shows at The World’s Most Famous Arena. Flying high off of an incredibly creative and well-received Las Vegas Halloween run, the seasoned four-piece picked right up from where they left off in early November, delivering a high-octane two-set performance. Everyone in the Manhattan arena felt the feelings they’d forgotten, as Phish worked through some impressive second-takes on Kasvot Växt material, and also brought back memories of 2017’s untouchable 13-night Baker’s Dozen run.Phish got the show on the road with “We Are Come To Outlive Our Brains”, or as some have already started to refer to as “WACTOOB”, immediately bringing the sold-out crowd back to the brilliance the band first unveiled at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, and also counted as a first for many in attendance. The second delivery ever of “We Are Outcome To Live Our Brains” had some serious girth to it, as Trey Anastasio got his chance to take the jam out twice as far, clearly indicating his intents for another rowdy night in arguably Phish’s favorite venue.Following a brief pause, “Martian Monster” came next, as Vermont’s finest quartet locked into the tune’s signature infectious groove. Anastasio once again took things into his own hands, spitting out some firey hot guitar licks, with Page McConnell following closely behind. It was evident Jon Fishman and Mike Gordon were loose and ready to attack, as the rhythm section anchored the band’s uncontainable energy moving forward with “Axilla”. The standard “Axilla” led way to “Free”, as the Madison Square Garden crowd immediately silenced themselves and locked in with the four masterminds on stage.Gordon laid down his first bass-bombs of the night leading into “Free”, as a breezy sensation drifted across the room, accompanied by Anastasio’s opening lyrics. With Fishman strutting his stuff into a contagious hi-hat centered rhythm, Anastasio quickly looked to his pedalboard, charging into a roaring guitar solo.  A solid take on “The Wedge” was next, before Gordon led his bandmates into “Meat”. Friday night’s rendition of “Meat” was particularly slowed down and funky, with the band utilizing their rhythmic breakdowns as a creative outlet for Anastasio and McConnell to bounce off of.Following a final segment of Page hammering away on his grand piano, the jam smoothly segued into “Ghost”, as Trey stared directly into the center of the venue’s ceiling with a deadly glare in his eyes. Trey and Page took no time to move away from the compositional structure of “Ghost”, quickly finding themselves in some delicate interplay, as all four members eventually locked in and slowed down the groove. Longtime lighting designer Chris Kuroda left the latch unhooked throughout the night, rocking his ever-evolving monstrosity of a light rig in all dimensions, as rainbow beams blasted the enthusiastic crowd.As “Ghost” fizzled out, the band quickly hopped into “Sparkle”, which led way to the somewhat rarity “If I Could, despite being played 2 shows prior in Las Vegas. Anastasio, Gordon, and McConnell shined as a vocal unit, belting out, “flipping backwards through the doors and through the windows”, before moving forward with “Maze”. Following Anastasio’s opening lyrics, Fishman and Gordon paved the way for McConnell to blaze into his solo on the clav, before quickly hopping in between his grand piano, dazzling the crowd with an electric whirlwind of a solo. Fishman continued to hold down the pocket, as Anastasio let it all hang out with a tenacious, ever-evolving solo. A rocking take on “Walls Of The Cave” brought Phish’s ambitious first set to a close.Following a brief set break, Trey let out the opening riff for “Set Your Soul Free”, immediately setting a launchpad for his bandmates to dive head-first into Type II territory. “Set Your Soul Free”, which was debuted earlier this summer at the Gorge, allowed McConnell to flex his chops on the keys, as the band soared into a blissful, free-flowing segment. Fishman continued pushing forward, with Anastasio jumping around between his complex assortment of effects. Up next was the glorious return of “Swept Away” into “Steep”, played for the first time this year, and last played at Phish’s  “maple” themed night during their now iconic Baker’s Dozen run.Although the segue didn’t contain an extended jam à la Baker’s Dozen, the Madison Square Garden crowd was bouncing around the room, as Phish stealthily whipped out their second 2018 Halloween song back into the mix with “The Final Hurrah”. In similar suit as the show opening “We Are Come To Outlive Our Brains”, Phish took “The Final Hurrah” out for a silky-smooth ride, ambitiously pushing deep into improvisational territory. The band was beaming with shit-eating grins from ear-to-ear, as they showered the crowd with the beloved recent debut, adding an extra element of funk-fueled treatment.Following a quick chance to catch their breaths, the band moved into “Fuego”, setting the mood for the remainder of the evening  which was chock-full of free-flowing psychedelic Phish. Trey and Page made sure to keep things rolling, as Page powered through a continuous path of explosive work on his grand piano. The band continued down their heavily-focused exploratory path with “Shade”, before moving into a noteworthy take on “Bathtub Gin”. Friday night’s “Gin” encompassed the band’s deepest desires to continue pushing their creative bar with scents and subtle sounds of their Halloween show, before bringing the second set to a close with “Possum”. The soul-drenched one-two punch of “Bouncing Around The Room” and “Slave to the Traffic Light” in the encore slot suggests that Phish is ready to continue their quest of burning Madison Square Garden down.Setlist: Phish | Madison Square Garden | New York, NY | 12/28/2018Set One : We Are Come To Outlive Our Brains, Martian Monster, Axilla > Free, The Wedge, Meat > Ghost > Sparkle, If I Could, Maze, Walls Of The CaveSet Two: Set Your Soul Free > Swept Away > Steep, The Final Hurrah, Fuego > Shade > Bathtub Gin > PossumEncore: Bouncing Around The Room, Slave To The Traffic Light Load remaining imageslast_img read more

first_imgGhana U17 assistant coach Isaac Opeele Boateng has replied his critics following the team’s disappointing campaign at the African U17 Championship.Opeele has been pilloried for talking much and doing very little as a coach due to his media job.The former Asante Kotoko coach is a columnist in the state-owned Graphic Sports Newspaper and also a pundit on radio and television.Opeele has been tagged as boastful and disrespectful to other coaches in country in most of his post-match analysis in the media.His critics have questioned why he did not put his knowledge on tactics and techniques to good use at the tournament in Morocco.But the Mourinho-esque character has sent a stinker to his detractors in his response. “It’s just jealousy. I am still the special one of Ghana football,” Opeele told Asempa FM.“I’ve heard people say I am a talkative but I will still talk because that gives me money, it helps me to feed my family.“I can never be intimidated; I will be who I am because that’s how God created me. I will never change.“I’ve changed so many things in coaching in the country; I’ve forced coaches to talk about system and tactics after games rather than thanking God, and am proud of that.”Opeele has coached a lot of clubs in his young coaching career including Tudu Mighty Jets, defunct Kessben FC, Sekondi Hasaacas and Asante Kotoko.last_img read more

first_img– Raucous atmosphere –Both clubs were allocated 25,000 tickets, with 5,000 of those reserved for residents of Argentina. The fear had been most of those buying would be tourists and neutrals, but the atmosphere suggested different.Both teams had initially refused to play in Spain’s capital but as the losers, Boca’s sense of grievance will now become more entrenched.They felt River were responsible for the chaos two weeks ago and should have forfeited the trophy. They took their case to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, but the appeal was rejected on Saturday.When the players shuffled out two hours before kick-off to inspect the pitch, they held up their phones to capture the thousands already inside and the view of a stadium most of them had never played in before.The cheers grew louder when they came out for kick-off. Then there were whistles as the teams swapped ends and each were greeted by their opponent’s fans behind the goal.Jonatan Maidana was playing for Boca when they last won the Copa Libertadores 11 years ago and, now in the red and white of River, he almost gave his former club an early lead, slicing just over his own crossbar.The game lacked quality but came alive one minute before half-time. Nahitan Nandez’s superb pass split two River defenders and Benedetto kept a cool head, guiding into the corner, before taunting the beaten Gonzalo Montiel.River had been inferior but improved. Their first real attacking move was also a brilliant one as Leonardo Ponzio and Quintero exchanged passes before the latter pulled back for Pratto to sweep home.The game meandered towards full-time and seemed destined for penalties until Quintero intervened. It was a goal worthy of winning the tournament, as he collected 25 yards out, glanced up and whipped the ball in off the underside of the crossbar.Leonardo Jara almost snatched a late Boca goal but his shot nicked the outside of the post. Then, with goalkeeper Esteban Andrada up for a corner, River added the final touch.Share on: WhatsApp Madrid, Spain | AFP | River Plate won the Copa Libertadores by beating their fiercest rivals Boca Juniors 3-1 after extra time on Sunday, bringing an end to a final tainted by violence and moved more than six thousand miles away from Argentina.Boca took the lead through Dario Benedetto but Lucas Pratto equalised before Juan Quintero and Gonzalo Martinez both scored in extra time to win a fittingly dramatic contest for River.It means River prevailed 5-3 on aggregate after the first leg finished 2-2 and the club reclaim the trophy they had last won in 2015, lifting it for the fourth time in their history.Postponed on three occasions and then relocated from Buenos Aires to Madrid, the supporters of these two great clubs showed in the Santiago Bernabeu why this fixture had been billed as one of football’s greatest ever.Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Diego Godin were among the 62,200 in attendance.But, despite the bouncing huddles in the streets, the plumes of blue and red smoke, the swinging scarves, fluttering flags and fans that were chanting in their seats three hours before kick-off, there was nothing to extinguish the lingering sense of regret.There was no repeat of the scenes that cast a shadow over Argentinian football and saw the original game at River’s El Monumental on November 24 postponed, when around 50 fans attacked Boca’s team bus and left some of their players injured.Madrid, which will also host the Champions League final in June, was chosen in part because of its record of hosting major events and the security, which included around 2,500 police officers, did its job before kick-off.Fans were separated into zones either side of the stadium and had to go through checks even to enter the area immediately surrounding it.The shame was only that the operation was not as thorough 15 days ago and that a minority decided to take advantage.last_img read more
