BACKSTAGE RIDER: Crooners

Barry Manilow

Barry Manilow

Just in case you think all those women wearing Barry Manilow sweatshirts and sweatpants speak to the enormity of his legion of devotees, think again. Seems that Barry's climate control of the concert hall might serve to chill his fans, creating a run to the concession counters for additional layers of clothing.

And you have to love the fact that Barry's brigade arrives early to decorate their dreamboat's dressing room (no doubt some of these misguided gals imagine a future life as the first Mrs. Manilow). (8 pages)

Funny how the DIVAism of some artists can't help but shine through their technical rider. Manilow,, yeah he is one,, at one event someone I knew worked at, his manager came into the hallway and told everyone to turn around and face the wall, so that Barry would walk through. Who does he think he is?

One (1) New Toilet Seat

Mary J. Blige demands a new toilet seat at every concert venue. Yes, no more drama.
