BACKSTAGE RIDER: Divas

Celine Dion '08

Celine Dion

Celine Dion cares deeply about the comfort of those attending her concerts, according to the singer's 2008-09 tour rider, excerpts of which you'll find here.

The Canadian songbird requires promoters to provide "soft seated chairs for the audience," since the rears of Dion fans should never touch a folding chair. The rider also requires Dion's medium-size dressing room to be kept at 73 degrees, and outlaws Ruffles-style potato chips. And as for the performer's fresh breath, credit goes to a small pack of Clorets gum. (4 pages)
