Festival Organizers ‘Gobsmacked’ at Guns N’ Roses Tour Rider
According to the Daily Mirror, Guns N’ Roses raised some eyebrows with their backstage tour rider for their show at the Download Festival this past weekend in the UK. The Daily Mirror is quoted as saying:

Music stars nowadays are a far cry from the hotel-room-trashing, cars-in-the-pool hellraisers of old.
So I’m glad to see Guns N’ Roses still know how to rock ’n’ roll. And they’ve issued a few jaw-dropping demands on their backstage rider at Download Festival – including a porcelain toilet.
I’m told Axl Rose, Slash, Duff McKagan and the rest of the band flew in for their THREE HOUR headlining slot by helicopter, before being whisked off to a compound the size of a football pitch.
Access was denied to anyone who isn’t part of the tour group.
Inside they had home comforts from America flown over, including their favourite Hershey bars and extra cheesy pizzas. Anyone who’s ever been to a festival is familiar with the horror of the portaloo, so it’s understandable the band demanded special porcelain bogs to ease their… comfort.
I’m told super silky toilet paper was also requested for the lads. Well, all those dodgy festival burgers can take their toll…
A source reveals: “When organisers of Download got Guns N’ Roses’ requests they were gobsmacked. It is the biggest rider the festival has ever seen, they have never seen anything like it. But they made sure it was exactly as they wanted.”
Some of my favourite star demands include Jay Z having a personal cigar maker on his pay roll – and Mariah Carey asking for 20 white kittens and 100 white doves.
Rockers taking to the stage tonight at Donington Park near Derby include Ozzy Osbourne and Marilyn Manson. It might get loud…
