Duran Duran, now in the midst of its 2011 world tour, has a backstage rider with such specific wine requirements that concert promoters may require the services of a sommelier.

Included in the “Wine and Champagne” section of the band’s “STAR Dressing Room” demands are:

* “3 bottles of excellent quality Italian red wine - Sassicaia, Solaia or Tignanello - vintages between 89 and 97”

* “2 bottles of excellent quality white wine - Corton Charlemagne preferred - vintages 1996, 1999, 2001, 2002, 2004.”

* “2 bottles of good quality Champagne - Veuve Clicquot or Bollinger preferred.”

The group also wants a bottle of “reasonable quality white wine – Chardonnay or local favorite” and a bottle of Patron Silver tequila. “Do not Supply Regular Tequila,” the rider warns promoters.

We recently had the chance to do a Duran Duran rock poster for the LA Show...
If push comes to shove these dodo's probably would'nt know the difference between what they are asking for and some cheap vino that goes for .99 cents a bottle.
