Want to know what's on GUNS N' ROSES' tour rider? The contract for the band's September 23 concert in Belgrade, Serbia requested that Rose's dressing room be all black and decorated with fresh roses, with champagne, vodka, tequila, red wine and beer available in the room. The room was also to include a bed, a sofa, a coffee table, six lamps and a rug.
Rose also wanted fresh roses, 18 each of red and white, in the band's dressing room as well, along with "black napkins, a blender, a juice maker, a tea kettle, paper tissues, 18 glasses for wine and champagne, 15 glasses for stiff drinks, 40 paper glasses, six cutlery sets, two bottle openers and corkscrews, as well as one large and two smaller bread knives."
