Backstage

The Smoking Gun has put together a collection of documents sent to concert venues outlining requirements of the performing band. It appears that in the music industry this document is called a rider. Some of them are humorous:

Rolling Stones travel with their own furniture and require a Snooker table, 5 video games and a ping-pong table.

Both Ozzy Ozbourne and John Mellencamp require a doctor to be present during the show.

Creed asks venues to avoid asian, vegetarian and exotic dishes.

Moby asks for 10 pairs of white underwear?

Third Eye Blind asks for a different kind of cereal each day of the week.

And of course, Britney Spears says that if the rider isn't kept strictly confidential there may be "irreparable harm which may not be compensable in monetary damages."
