Live Nation Reality Series focuses on Contract Riders

The Rider Challenge from Live Nation is sponsored by Ford Fiesta.  The concept is that challengers must find and bring in the sometimes outlandish demands that are included in the Hospitality Riders in bands’ contracts.  Having lived those challenges, it may really be pretty darn funny to watch others have to “dance to that tune” also.  It debuts online September 30.


The bands involved are:  Fall Out Boy, the Lumineers, Kid Cudi,  Fitz & the Tantrums,  Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros.

If you go to the link at the Smoking Gun, they have  a huge list of the contract riders from singers and bands to even politicians.

Contract riders are almost always a challenge, getting the 36 new white towels are always the easiest.  What was your biggest (worst) request?

    Hi there! This is kind of off topic but I need some guidance from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to start. Do you have any points or suggestions? Appreciate it

      Isidro, I’m not very technical either but the most well known are Word Press (and . You can find videos on YouTube explaining how to use each platform or do a web search and find lots of help and forums on each. My main advise to to follow your passion. It may sound a little corny but sincerity goes a long way and being authentic will bring followers. Hope this helps. Please let me know how you are doing.
