There's no way that he could have announced this after the fact without it looking like a move to save face.

I feel that if it were in the works for a while it could have been mentioned at any single point before it sold out. Especially in his previous statement where he said he had to feed his family.

But whatever I really don't care, haha. People will find issues with this no matter what happens.

the pre-order package itself wasn't a big deal in the first place

It's ok to hate man - this whole cancer thing is incredibly contrived

Even if this is helping a poor kid, you can't help but feel this announcement is disingenuous.

(edit)
The action itself isn't bad - it's the motivation behind it

Still don't see what the problem was in the first place...

I'm glad to see some of the money is going to a great cause though.

Welp, glad this thing is over. He should have said that it was for cancer funds in the very beginning to avoid backlash AND make more money for the cause.

Damned if you do damned if you dont. Leave this dude alone the package was probably never his idea in the first place the label and management probably came up with it.

Nice save and I'm assuming this is the same kid from the reddit thread from earlier. But anyway, I'm not a fan of this band but I didn't think the package was that ridiculous. Tickets to shows of this size (electric factory an the like) typically cost 40 dollars to begin with. So the package really isn't ridiculously expensive when you consider it includes a ticket to the show as well. I think the backlash was more due to a misunderstanding and a general dislike for this band. Anyway I've seen bands that are far more well liked on this site and by me-Bayside and Anberlin are 2 examples- that have had far more ridiculous VIP fan packages (Anberlins was a bus tour for 100 dollars that didn't include a ticket to the show) but didn't get nearly the backlash
