Leg One

Final Thoughts from Leg One Phish Survey

We had some pretty interesting results yesterday in the first part of our survey results about the first leg of Phish Summer Tour 2011. In addition to results on everything from fan perception of the songs, the shows, the runs, the prices, the stream, the jamming, who’s going to IX and many others, Hidden Track was thrilled to be recognized by fans so highly. Only Phish.net, Phish.com & YEMBlog ranked higher as a go-to source of information about Phish. So while we recognize the inherent advantage we had by running the survey, thanks for reading and recognizing the coverage Hidden Track provides.

Now on to the business at hand…

The questions from the survey that remain to be answered are perception of the venues, three words to describe tour, general thoughts about tour and favorite moments and jams.

Three Words to describe Tour

As we did last summer, we created a Wordle from your responses. The larger the word, the more often it appeared in results. Though of course if someone answered “not much jams”, that would make “jams” a larger result. So while not scientifically accurate, this is fun nevertheless. We have included the individual responses below the graphic.

Phish Summer 2011 Leg One Survey Results

Phish Summer 2011 Summer Tour Leg One is now nothing but a memory. Super Ball IX, which will undoubtedly create unbelievable memories for the fans that are there and also those listening at home, is knocking on the door. But what about the memories of Leg One? What did everyone think? Well over 1,000 fans took the time to fill out our survey and shared their thoughts on the venues, the songs, the jamming, the ticket prices and even the band’s legendary ‘Fleezer.’

We will follow up with another survey at the end of the summer after what may be the last tour for a while. Until that time, read on for a snapshot of what fans are thinking about Phish right now.

So is Phish just going through the motions? Or performing at the top of their ability? The very first question sums up the general consensus: Phish is ROCKING! Only 14% of fans rated the First Leg at “Average” or lower. Overwhelmingly, “Phenomenal” or “Very Good, Some Gems.”
