TAHOE TOPS SECONDARY MARKET

Dylan at SeatGeek sent over an analysis of top venues to see Phish during their 2011 summer tour, based on average ticket prices. The results as of 6/15/2011 are as follows:

1. Lake Tahoe Outdoor Arena at Harveys, Stateline, NV - 8/9 & 8/10
2. Hollywood Bowl, Hollywood, CA - 8/8
3. UIC Pavilion, Chicago, IL - 8/15 - 8/17
4. Riverbend Music Center, Cincinnati, OH - 6/5
5. nTelos Pavilion, Portsmouth, VA - 6/19
6. Blossom Music Center, Cuyahoga Falls, OH - 6/4
7. Dick's Sporting Goods Park, Commerce City, CO - 9/2 - 9/4
8. Darien Lake Performing Arts Center, Darien, NY - 6/8
9. DTE Energy Music Theatre, Clarkston, MI - 6/3
10. Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Charlotte, NC - 6/17

SeatGeek - a search engine that allows comparison shopping across major secondary markets including StubHub, TicketsNow, and TicketNetwork - shows that of Phish's 30-show summer, the overall average price is $92.47 (excluding Super Ball IX).

Thanks for the study, Dylan! Very effective system you developed there.

Lemuria As noted, it's based on average ticket prices in the secondary market. Tahoe is the most expensive ticket (duh), then Hollywood (which surprises me).

User_11821_ I feel Bethel was a steal then.

Dressed_In_Gray Having mail ordered for my tickets, all my prices were the same. :)

Interesting that as the avg ticket price went up for the midwest run, the shows deteriorated. The 1st, 2nd, 3rd of Riverbend-Blossom-DTE was reversed in terms of show quality.

Extending that trend, you had better watch out UIC and Tahoe, cuz Dick's is gonna kick your azz.

CannedWalrus Gorge isn't here, therefore this is void.

Banff Charlotte should be # 1 based on setlist alone. At least it made the list !
