The Infamous Van Halen Concert Rider

Being backstage is part of life  in the radio biz, and over the years I’ve seen some strange stuff, but nothing like the Van Halen rider. Most venues have a table laden with fresh fruit and veggies, assorted meats, crackers and several cheeses and beverages for the band members. Some bands however have special requests. This one however takes the cake.

We decked out the dressing rooms backstage at the MTV European Video Awards. We didn’t get to check out any of the artists’ riders while we were there, but we’re fairly certain none were quite as demanding as the infamous Van Halen M&Ms rider. Curious as to what exactly the band required? The infographic below illustrates the rider in all its glory.
