The list of bizarre requests made by Jacko for comeback tourMarch 8th, 2009 - 4:34 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 8 (ANI): King of Pop Michael Jackson has made a list of bizarre requests for his comeback gigs at the O2 Arena in July.
The Thriller hitmaker has asked that his dressing room be equipped with no fewer than four hair driers.
His requests also include 24 hand towels, ten clothing rails, a nailbrush, odourless air freshener and even raspberry-scented candles.
This just doesnt sound like your regular rock gig at all, the Daily Star quoted American rock event planner Katie McCubbin, who has helped stage concerts at huge venues for megabands including the Rolling Stones and U2, as saying.
Some bands demand never-ending supplies of exotic foods, designer booze and the most expensive luxuries that money can buy.
Michaels rider isnt just modest by industry standards its downright weird.
McCubbin added: Who needs four hair driers? Who needs 24 hand towels? And whod bother to add a fifty-cent nail brush to the list?
Jackson made a demand of 11 dressing rooms, eight of which will be for his band, backing singers and dancers. Three will be for the singer himself and members of his inner circle.
The 50-year-old will have a direct dial international phone line with internet access as well as an entertainment system and a 42-inch flat screen TV.
And the singer is insisting on honey and fresh lemons and limes to soothe his throat.
His master dressing room must also have a dimmer switch, a trouser press and three over-sized leather chairs.
There will also be two holding areas for family and friends with sushi and dim sum platters plus wines and beers. (ANI)
