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.

Ever since 2009, we’ve been teaming up with Parker Harrington, aka @TMWSIY, who created a comprehensive survey asking fans for their thoughts about the recently completed first leg of Phish Summer Tour 2011. Parker’s poll includes questions about the webcast, your reading habits, the venues and most importantly plenty of questions about the music from the leg. Next week we’ll provide the results.

Phish Summer Tour 2010 came to a close last night at Jones Beach on Long Island and now it’s time to start analyzing the 11-show second leg of the group’s excursion. Back in July we asked our readers to grade the first leg of the tour and a resounding 90% gave the quartet a B+ or above. How will they do this time? We’d like to find out with your help.
