The list of backstage demands for some rock bands is borderline insane. Remember Van Halen's need for a huge bowl of M&M's backstage - with all the brown one's removed? That one was quite tame. Slayer once demanded 100 white goats and 4 Lite Brite boards. Metallica once demanded 16 banquet tables full of food - with bacon in every one.

Now, with the Foo Fighters ready to rock the Denny Sanford Premier Center on November 11, 2017 in Sioux Falls, we were wondering what Dave Grohl and the crew will require in their tour rider. Well, it's extremely healthy for a rock band but hey, we want them around for a long time so yes, this is fine!

According to NME, who got a copy of the tour rider from last weekend's concert in Glastonbury, here's what the Foo Fighters like before a show:

  • 1 Fiji water
  • 1 Schwepps soda water
  • 1 coconut water
  • 1 Pom Juice
  • 1 12-pack of Diet Coke
  • 1 fresh orange juice
  • 1 Ocean Spray cranberry juice
  • 1 case of Vitamin Water
  • 1 case of Red Bull
  • 1 case of Gatorade
  • 1 pack of Starbucks coffee beans
  • 1 fat free organic milk
  • 1 Edensoy milk
  • 1 pack of avocados
  • 1 pack of tomatoes
  • 1 dark chocolate bar
  • 1 pack of bananas
  • 1 pack of apples
  • 1 pack of pears
  • 1 pack of kiwi fruit
  • 1 pack of seedless grapes
  • 1 jar of peanut butter

While beer and a full bar may be a requirement on the tour rider for many rock bands, the Foo Fighters are setting a great example with a healthy living choice. perhaps this is why their shows and albums are always a huge success.

Well done!
