Tour riders are often some of the most interesting parts of any artist or band’s tour. They often offer an inside look into just how high-maintenance some artists can be. This is often exemplified by how specific their requests might be.

Some rock stars require specific kinds of food and drink, while others clearly want a dressing room that sets a certain mood. Some tour riders feature requests so outrageous they must be a joke. Other tour riders — like one infamous one at the very end of our list — feature details that are actually requests to see if you read the rider at all.

Our list below highlights eight tour riders. The first from Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band is the latest to make headlines. (Make no mistake: When a tour rider is leaked, it almost always makes headlines. There are at least a few items on it that leave you asking, “Umm…really?!”)

Without further ado, keep scrolling and find out which of your favorite rock stars have interesting requests on their tour riders.
