Iggy Pop's amazing tour rider

Some bands ask for brown M & M's.

Others, a case of Jack Daniels.

But the tour rider for Iggy Pop & The Stooges might be one of the most amazing things I've ever read.

The Smoking Gun has obtained a copy of the document, which does have some actual band requirements listed, but the rest of the stuff is clearly hilarious.

First of all, the rider is entitled "Iggy Pop & The Seven Stooges & The Seven Dwarfs," and starts off with this requirement: 1 monitor man who speaks good English and is not afraid of death. {Only joking, or am I?"}

Here are some of the convoluted highlights:

*About keeping the front of the stage clear: No lighting or monitor cables, no power cables, no toy robots, no television evangelists, no television camera men, no plastic seahorses, no bailiwicks... (and so on) Now Iggy can run around in his customary manner, like a crazed running-around type thing and we can all relax in a haze of self-satisfied panic."

*Concerning food and catering: At load out time, we would like to be supplied with two enormous pizzas (either to eat, or to leave on the bus until we find a truckstop trashcan with an entrance 10cm/2in round, then we desperately try to fold the enormous still pizza box so that it's small enough to go in, which it never is.. (and then it veers off into the similarity of abandoned pizzas to Salvador Dali's famous melted clock painting.

*Regarding a limo driver for Iggy: do not get overexcited/starstruck, do not turn around and look at the back of the car whilst driving..driver is not to ask for an autograph..


You can read the entire rider here. I highly recommend page 20, which includes a lengthy discussion of badgers. Not Badgers, but the furry creature type badgers.

Venue Rider
Not to be outdone, venue managers have united to insert riders in all Stooges' performance contracts requiring Iggy to wear a shirt at all times. :) Kraig

If the venue rider is enforced, it will mark the first time since 1972 that clothing has adorned Iggy Pop's upper torso. (I am not certain, but there may be a factual basis for this joke). KB

To Kraig
That would be a very wise idea. Agreed.
