If you were a bajillion-selling megastar, what would be on your backstage rider? Most bands opt for crisps, booze, maybe a bit of hummus if they’re feeling healthy. Not this lot, though. From Foo Fighters’ Pot Noodles to Red Hot Chili Peppers’ clean underwear, here’s some of the weirdest leaked rider requests…
James Blunt would like venues in every town to understand he’s a bit of a “lad”. You know, not like the prim posh bloke he appears to be on all those records. No, he wants 120 beers, 12 bottles of Magners, four bottles of vodka, three bottles of white wine and two bottles of champagne. Grrrr.
Diva-ish demands are a given with Mariah Carey, who wants a dressing room festooned with fluffy kittens, puppies and bunnies. God knows what happens to them afterwards. Also, at a record store signing, she wanted all toilet paper replaced with her preferred pink brand. The royal arse must be pampered.
