BACKSTAGE RIDER: Alternative

Pearl Jam '08

Pearl Jam

Along with "2 bottles of fine Italian red wine," Pearl Jam's 2008 tour rider specifies that the band only be served Ethos water (Starbucks owns the brand and contributes a portion of each purchase price to humanitarian water programs worldwide).

Eddie Vedder & Co. also enjoy creamy Jif peanut butter, miniature Dove chocolates, Peet's coffee, and a nice magazine assortment.

The group also requires "4 cartons Epsom salt," but does not further describe the "medical purposes" for which it is needed. (3 pages)
