Beer, Cigarettes And What Else Is On [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]’s List Of Demands?
Before Adele had to leave her North American tour in support of her multi-platinum album “21” to have vocal chord surgery, she did quite a few shows. Most artists have a “rider” which specifies what they’d like to have available to them backstage.
Some riders are legendary. The one that always come to mind for me is the 1982 [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Van Halen[/lastfm] rider that stipulates “ABSOLUTELY NO BROWN M&M’s”! Buzz Feed has a Copy Of Van Halen’s Rider HERE!
Adele’s rider, in comparison, seems absolutely down to earth! Her requests include Marlboro cigarettes, a disposable lighter, bite size chocolate bars, good red wine, cereal bars and 12 bottles of the best European lager and states: “North American Beer Is Not Acceptable”! Hey, why not ask for what you want?
I also love the fact that if you’re getting complimentary tickets to the show you’re required to make a minimum $20 charitable donation to the UK based charity, Sands. Sands supports people who’ve been affected by the death of a baby and also supports research to minimize those deaths.
Go [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Adele[/lastfm]!!!
