He is not giving his music away for "free." He is giving them away with the purchase of what will likely be very expensive concert tickets. BIG difference.


i was just going to say the samething.


I still think this is a step in the right direction. Anything closer to recordings being given away for dirt cheap or included with what people are still actually paying for is a help.


Yes, $90+ tickets so I think this more shows that TP's management (which has been somewhat forward thinking over the years) is trying to maintain a sense of fairness while still understanding the current nature of music and the economy.

It's a nice gesture. More value for the same (enormous) ticket price.
