First of all: I'm the new one, hi!
I found something pretty interesting. It's the Weezer 2009/2010 Tourrider. For those who don't know what it is: It's a kind of contract where everything from food in the wardrobe to lights needed on stage is defined. Maybe some of you would like to see it. So here it is: WEEZER_RIDER.pdf
30 pages full of bureaucratic stuff but still with some interesting lines.
Cool to see something like this surface. Unfortunately, I don't think I found a single bit of tasty gossip in there. Oh well. Thanks for posting!
what do you mean, no dirty gossip. You see how many damn towels they request?!?!?!
Towels: All towels must be soft and lint free and freshly laundered prior to event.
WEEZER total towel requirement: 6 dozen bath towels, 16 mid size towels and 18
6 dozen = 72 towels. Wonder what they do with them all.
I'm mainly kidding with this. It's only kind of weird.
I also found this funny:
Please supply all hot cups, plates and bowls using paper products. NO
who do you think drinks Coors light? Scooooooooooooooott
(sorry if this double-posted, having browser issues today) I love reading riders. Foo Fighters have a really good one that explains some of their requests and is just a fun read, giving some insight into life on the road. When I worked in the production field, I found that the more specific, the better for everyone involved. (Most of the towels are probably for the crew. Or maybe to clean up after the wild parties.)
I wish weezer's current rider specified a good high-speed wifi connection in the dressing room so we could get more awesome ustream broadcasts.
what a bunch of f****** divas!
