Every artist has their own unique rider, otherwise known as a list of demands that they need fulfilled before they set foot on stage to perform. And each rider is like a birdseye lens into the mind, or rather the desires, of our favorite artists. Recently, TMZ got a hold of rising R&B star August Alsina’s tour rider and you might be surprised at how much food the singer requires before he puts on a show.
According to the alleged rider, August’s base pay for any show is $60K. He also requires the following food items to be stocked for him backstage:
-20 pieces of Popeyes chicken
-biscuits and mashed potatoes with gravy
-red beans and rice
August also has a list of various liquors that he must to have, as well.
-1 bottle of Patron
-1 bottle of Honey Jack Daniels
-1 case of Bud Light
-1 bottle of Cabernet
-2 bottles of Hennessy
August doesn’t just think of himself, though, when he’s making his tour rider. He also requires food for his 20-person staff.
-12 Rib-eye steaks
-24 fried prawns
-24 sauteed prawns
-baked lobster macaroni and cheese
Well, that’s definitely a food-heavy rider. However, it’s far simpler and cheaper than the riders of many other celebrities.
