Tour Riders, the Strange Requests of Artists When They Are On Tour

When a band or celebrity is booked to perform , not only is there a contract but there is this document called a tour document.  It is a list of things that the band or artist request to be provided to them and some times, it is a list of outrageous requests.

Here are a few of the items they request.
