Before Adele got sick and had to get vocal cord surgery, she had a slew of gigs lined up across North America. And today, her rider for the tour, which was canceled due to her illness, has been revealed. In it some have found what they believe to be the reason for her getting sick. Among various food stuffs, it mandates that she would get a pack of cigarettes, two bottles of the "very best quality red wine," and 12 bottles of the "best quality European lager beer."
Personally, I think the more interesting part of the rider is the fact that she requires anyone who receives a complimentary ticket to her shows to make a $20 donation. And that means anyone, no questions asked. You can read the full rider at The Smoking Gun. [The Daily Swarm]
