The Spin: Along with the regular general admission ticket option, Sleeping With Sirens is offering an $80 package that includes an autographed polaroid picture with lead vocalist Kellin Quinn, group Q/A with Quinn, a signing session with the band, a large double-sided autographed poster, early entry to that date of the tour, and a general admission ticket to that specific date.
What seems to have the scene in an uproar is the fact that the band is charging $80 dollars for a picture with Quinn. Many artists have commented on the package, including Oli Sykes (Bring Me The Horizon), Parker Cannon (The Story So Far), and Mat Kerekes (Citizen).
Due to the controversy, Quinn has spoken up and released an official statement of sorts on the situation. You can read what he had to say below.
I feel like this is an amazing deal for 80 dollars if you disagree then don’t buy it, no one is forcing you k?

keep in mind Polaroid film is super expensive, your getting the ticket to the show, you get front row over anyone else.. If you only want to pay general admission then just do that. However, if you do like the idea of doing all these things included.. It’s ONLY 80 dollars.. I would never charge someone money for just a picture with me.. I try and do anything and everything for my fans.. I do in fact have a family, and that family needs to be fed.. So thanks for supporting us and helping me continue to tour.. Without you there is no us! Love you Kellin
