BACKSTAGE RIDER: Bieber

The backstage rider, presented to promoters by every touring act, details specifications on stage design, sound systems, lighting, as well as an artist's wish list--from travel and billing to dressing room accommodations and meals.

Made famous by Van Halen’s contractual demand that brown M&M's be plucked from the group’s candy bowl, the rider often reflects the delightful (Foo Fighters, Iggy Pop) or difficult (Jennifer Lopez) nature of the individual artists. Below you’ll find our ever-expanding list of 300+ riders, covering performers from Frank Sinatra and U2 to Lady Gaga and Kenny G.
