Mariah Carey's doves. Justin Bieber's jacuzzis. Van Halen's bowl of M&Ms with the brown ones taken out—the backstage demands of famous artists are part of music folklore.
So it's a matter of some intrigue to hear that Ed Sheeran's rather modest dressing room demands have been leaked ahead of his headline performance at Glastonbury 2017, arguably the biggest gig in Britain. According to the NME, Ed's rider is: a bottle of Robinsons Squash, a six-pack of Coca-Cola, a six-pack of Diet Coke, a six-pack of Fanta Orange, a six-pack of Sprite, and a jar of Manuka Honey.
The total bill for the list comes to £57.31, the bulk of which went to the honey, which presumably is to help soothe his voice.
Not even any booze here, and as we all know,.
Further evidence Ed is a nice, normal, down-to-earth bloke or that rock 'n' roll is well and truly dead? We'll let you decide.
Ed first broke the exciting news that he would be headlining Glastonbury back in March on his Instagram.
