These riders are common in the music business, and the requests made by Adele are mild compared to some that I've heard about.
Some stars'riders are legendary. Mick Jagger demands a specially-constructed running platform outside his dressing room, so he can practice leaping about before going on stage.
Pink Floyd once asked for (and got) a miniature golf putting course behind the stadium.
Stevie Wonder asked for a meal of Filet Mignon and lobster for his entire 150 strong crew.
Janet Jackson wants a brand new black toilet seat at each venue.
Blur demand four pairs of Marks and Spencer boxer shorts, still in their wrappers.
U2 asked for the entire backstage area at Wembley to be newly carpeted.
And at number one in this week's charts is Robbie Williams. Here's what you'll be providing for him when he performs in your local village hall:-
a Japanese ceremonial tea set, a Formula 1 Scaletrix racing game; Dr Scholl sandals complete with foot powder; Mr Kipling's fondant fancies; a small packet of Dreft hand washing powder; two pump action water pistols with a range of at least ten metres; fresh starfruit (“superstar size”); and a game of table-top blow football with one team in the colours of Port Vale.
