Guns N’ Roses made waves after reportedly insisting on a porcelain toilet as part of their rider for Download Festival 2018. They’re clearly flush with cash it would seem…
The rock icons headlined the Saturday night of the metal festival last weekend. According to The Mirror their rider included demands for a porcelain toilet as well as ‘super silky smooth toilet paper’ in the rockers’ private enclosure. It is alleged that they flew-in Hershey bars and ‘extra cheesy pizzas’.
According to a source speaking to the paper: “When organisers of Download got Guns N’ Roses’ requests they were gobsmacked. It is the biggest rider the festival has ever seen, they have never seen anything like it. But they made sure it was exactly as they wanted.” Quite an expensive Slash to spend a penny.
Meanwhile, Guns N’ Roses recently debuted their cover of Velvet Revolver’s ‘Slither’ live at a show in Berlin. Slash and Duff McKagan played with Scott Weiland in Velvet Revolver, so the performance was a fitting tribute to their fallen bandmate. There’s fan footage of the awesome cover available here.
The band’s also getting set to release their forthcoming box set reissue of their iconic album, ‘Appetite For Destruction’. With a lengthy track list of 73 songs, 49 of those unreleased tracks, the vinyl box set will cost roughly €970, and will be released on June 29th.
