10 Outrageous Claims Musicians Have Ever Made Part Four

After all, you must admit: 18 page touring rider, which includes "the obligatory newspaper with stories about morbidly obese people", or, say, twelve foot boa, - such requirements seem at least strange and at most ridiculous ... However, their failure to comply is fraught with the cancellation of the long-awaited concert. So: today we remember the most outrageous demands ever put forward by musicians! We are sure that some of the conditions of star riders will lead you into bewilderment ...

AC/DC: oxygen masks

It is still unclear why AC/DC needed oxygen cylinders and masks on tour, but apparently they were really needed. In 2008, in addition to the attributes mentioned, the group requested chocolate "funny shaped" bars and a case of beer. However, beer was not allowed in the dressing room before the concert. Maybe that's why they refueled with oxygen?

The Beach Boys: special brand paper towels

Tourist rider Iggy Popa notorious for his not-quite-colorful jokes. Here is just one example: “Chop the cauliflower/broccoli and throw it in the trash immediately. I fucking hate this!" Another stupid condition of his rider is that he needs an English-language newspaper such as The New York Times (but you can USA Today) - the main thing is that it should contain "stories about people suffering from morbid obesity." It's really hard to imagine how this helps Iggy in front of the stage, but apparently it really means a lot to him...

Another pop diva with some pretty interesting and outlandish requests, Beyonce very picky about all aspects of her backstage life. Some of her requirements for the tour included that all staff must wear clothing. made of 100% cotton, as well as titanium straws for drinks, water, which must be supplied evenly 21 degrees, and that the walls be freshly painted white... However, perhaps the strangest request is to have hand-carved ice balls on hand to help her throat and vocals. However, why they should be hand-carved by someone, and not frozen in the form of balls, apparently will remain a mystery ...

She used to need an assistant whose only task was to dispose of used chewing gum, and she also insisted that her dressing room be 75 degrees heat with a lamp or clamp lamp and two dozen white roses, and Cristal champagne with flexible straws and glasses! However, her most famous request is a dressing room filled with puppies, rabbits, kittens, and any other furry animal, which she says helps calm her nerves. However, in recent years Careyreportedly left her whims behind and made up a much more humble rider…

During the world tour, there were many standard requirements in the rider of this American group, however, the request for a particularly interesting room along with the standard food and locker rooms was rather strange: a games room ...
