1) That I, personally, would not take newborns out on a tour. As parent's it's 100% their call to do it.
2) That I think collecting money before a tour feels backwards. As the one's touring 100% their call to do it.
3) That asking for $100,000 is pretty crazy. I don't know many people that make that for a living in general. But if their fans want to pay for that and like the gifts -- that's 100% their call to do it.
4) Not the kind of thing I personally back on Kickstarter. I back pre-orders for awesome not made products (love my evolution dock), or movies I wanna see (Calvin Hobbes Documentary / Veronica Mars) that need the money to make the actual tangible products I'll then receive in the mail.
5) That as a music fan I want to support bands I love. I do this by buying their music, paying for streaming services, buying merch, and buying tickets to shows. If it got down to it to support a band ... I'd rather give a musician, directly, 30 bucks for a download of a new album so they can keep making music and releasing it ... then back something for a tour I probably won't go see, and items I don't really want. I believe that bands have the right to do what they'd like to raise funds to keep doing what they wanna do. And fans can choose to buy/donate/support or not. That's all their call.
I know it's starting to look like bad PR though the more and more these stories with huge goals come out.
