Police Chief Praises Phish Crowd

I was very pleased and very appreciative for the cooperation of the crowd. They were very pleasant to deal with. I’ve been in the business for 33 years, and I can’t ever remember dealing with a crowd of that size that was so pleasant to deal with.

that is great. pretty typical i would say, contrarty to what i am sure many believe. i would love to see a record of violent crimes that resulted in arrests at phish shows compared to other bands without all the negative press regarding the arrest issue. i bet it would be eye opening.

Bungalow_Bill At my first show, a guy turned to me and said "I love you man!". Have not seen him since. But would give him a hug when I see him again. Nobody can touch that.

So happy to hear some kind words for the Phish community, especially when I witnessed a lit cigarette being thrown at a cop at this very show. Let's be human people.
