Amanda Palmer & Neil Gaimen Raise $85,000 In Just 60 Hours On Kickstarter To Finance Tour

image from i831.photobucket.com (UPDATED) In just 2 and a half days, Amanda Palmer and her husband author Neil Gaimen have raised $85,000 on Kickstarter from more than $1780 backers to fund a joint U.S. tour.  That far surpasses their goal of $20,000 and the campaign has 23 more days to go.  Palmer is known for her use of both social media and crowdsourcing, often mobilizing her 500,000+ Twitter followers to shoot a video, to create and sell merch ($19K in 10 hours), or to come to an impromptu gig.

Buy-in for the Kicsktarter campaign range from $1 (a free download) to a variety of premium gifts for a $500 pledge.
