Eminem Loves Pickles, And Other Rider Facts
Rock stars get their way. That’s what they do. But it’s always fun to find out what exactly “their way” is.
Recently, a tour “rider,” the document included in contracts between a concert promoter and an artist that specifies how the artist is to be treated while at the venue itself, for [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] surfaced.
What does Slim Shady require at every tour stop?
Pickles. The man likes his Gundelsheim pickles with his sandwiches (Boar’s Head meat at every stop, please) and jumbo shrimp cocktail.
What might be most impressive about the list (available at the Smoking Gun) is how clean it is. [lastfm]Eminem[/lastfm] is certainly taking his “Recovery” from addiction seriously. There is no alcohol anywhere on the rider – only a lot of Red Bull (six cans regular, 16 cans sugar free), water and soda.
Our favorite part: Synder’s Pretzels. Em knows his baked bread products.
Alright, so you’re a big international superstar. What would be on YOUR tour rider?
