Backstage Riders Of The Day
You've heard about ridiculous requests that some performers make when they tour (no brown M&M's, etc.). Here are actual contract riders for backstage demands. Click names to see what they gotta have on tour. From The Smoking Gun.
JLo - I think she likes white.
Elton John - and the loo should be precisely 68.5 degrees
The Beebs - Swedish Fish, please.
Janet Jackson - no fish ice!
Barely Manenough - "Barely's fan club shows up at 11 a.m. to decorate his dressing room."
Styx - two pizzas? Not a problem.
The Beatles - "four cots, mirrors, an ice cooler, portable TV set and clean towels."
Busta Rhymes - Moet, KFC and Rough Riders
Mandy Moore - refreshingly undemanding, unlike SOME celebs :::coughJLOcough:::
U2 - found what they're looking for: booze.
Diana Krall - hard to top JLo, but she did
Van Halen - nobody likes crappy tequila
Prince - expects gifts and flowers from fans. GET OFF THE STAGE!
Sheryl Crow - at least she won't need much TP
Willie Nelson - smoke-free. Right.
