Duran Duran

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... http://tworabbits.bigcartel.com/product/duran-duran-poster
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.
