Celebs are used to being treated like royalty. So it really shouldn’t come as a surprise to hear about their diva-ish backstage demands.
We all love to know how the stars relax backstage on tour. There have been plenty of reports around certain stars and their demands – so we’ve rounded up some of the best ‘reported’ celebrity rider requests. … What Do celebs includingEd Sheeran to Beyonce
Demand Have On Tour?
P!nk has given us an insight into her rider. Turns out that being a proud parent has changed the pop star’s backstage wishlist, but only a little bit. “There’s still whisky on my rider, thank you very much!” she insisted. “Also eco friendly pacifiers, string cheese…”
Another day, another celebrity rider uncovered. This time it’s the turn of One Direction and, in true boy band fashion, the former-band’s demands were pretty exhaustive and entertaining.
Much like her hubby Jay, Bey’s rider request extends to include the needs of Blue Ivy (“all rooms designated for Beyoncé’s use must be ‘baby-proofed'”) and, no doubt, now Sir and Rumi Carter.
“Dressing room should accommodate 8 people. In addition to the following food and beverages, Beyoncé’s primary dressing room should be furnished comfortably to create a “sitting room” atmosphere with the room temperature to be set at seventy-two (72) degrees.”
What is it with these guys and 72 degrees?!
Bey likes her food and bevs “presented on a table with a clean white tablecloth, linen napkins, silverware, disposable plates and silverware, drinking glasses and China plates, cups and saucers.” The food and beverages in question? A large turkey deli tray, eight bananas, five whole grapefruits, hard boiled eggs and one jar of jalapenos.
Justin Bieber went viral for the millionth time in his career back in May of this year when the alleged rider for his appearance in Mumbai was leaked by a music journalist. Are you ready for this? It’s beefy…
10 containers will be flown in with items like a ping pong table, playstation… sofa set, washing machine, refrigerator, upholstery, wardrobe cupboard, massage table that will be used backstage. Arrangements for a Jacuzzi have also been made for Bieber’s personal use to unwind before he takes to the stage.”
But that’s not all:
“A special Indian Yoga Casket containing aromatic essential oils: jasmine, mogra, rose and camphor incense sticks…”
We could go on. Really. It’s a long ol’ list. Let’s all spare a moment for the assistant in charge of sourcing all of Bieber’s must-haves. (Does anyone know what ‘mogra’ is?)
Lana Del Rey
He’s one of the biggest stars in the world – so it’s hardly surprising that Jay-Z’s alleged rider demands are lavish and extensive.
In a more recent tour rider for Jay’s and Ye’s ‘Watch The Throne’ Tour, the rapper factored in Blue Ivy’s needs, stating: “For starters, the entire suite must be childproofed with all corners, sharp edges, and electrical outlets all covered, and statues, lamps and breakable objects removed. Blue only drinks organic whole milk.
As backstage riders go, Adele’s is fairly simple.
Loud and clear, Adele. Loud and clear.
The red-head crooner has surprisingly modest taste for a platinum-selling international star, it seems. Channel 7’s Sunrise reported earlier this year that Sheeran wanted nothing more than ‘a bottle of Robinson’s squash, six cans of fizzy drink and one jar of Manuka honey.’
