Mick Jagger, who underwent heart surgery in April, has been reported by British tabloids to refuse to sleep on the same mattress two nights in a row during the latest Rolling Stones No Filter tour.
According to the tabloids, Jagger, whose reported net worth this year is $360 million, insists the plastic wrapping remain on the mattress while a member of the hotel staff sleeps on it for one night to break it in.
An insider added: “Mick always asks for a new mattress in his room no matter how posh the hotel.”
No Filter Tour
The Rolling Stones were forced to cancel concert dates in the U.S. and Canada in March after doctors told the legendary frontman he was not well enough to travel. Jagger returned to the stage just 11 weeks after heart surgery.
Some Crazy Rider Clause Demands from Stars
You know you are a start when you can order off the menu and make crazy demands. Many big tour musicians have a rider clause in the contract- a list of requirements to fit the needs and requests of the musicians for each venue.
Madonna demands a brand new lavatory seat for every venue.
Lady Gaga wants a mannequin in her dressing room with pink pubic hair.
Paul McCartney, the richest musician estimated at $1.2 Billion, requires six full and leafy plants.
Van Halen – The original line up, wanted a bowl of M&Ms in the backstage before each gig with the specification of eliminating all the brown ones. Once a brown chocolate candy was found and the band trashed the joint. Ain’t it great to be rich and famous.
