Adele is rather specific with this list, but one has to wonder if the smokes will get cut off the list after her recent vocal issues.  I do like the part about charity donations for comp tickets.  Here is the story from


Marlboro Lights cigarettes and good quality European beer are among Adele’s tour rider requests.

Adele’s tour rider includes cigarettes and good quality European beer.

The ‘Someone Like You’ hitmaker recently had to cancel all of her remaining tour dates for 2011 to have surgery on a vocal chord haemorrhage, but a copy of her tour demands have been released which show alcohol and Marlboro Lights are essential for the singer.

Adele requested two bottles of the “very best quality red wine” and 12 bottles of “best quality European lager beer. ie Becks, Stella Artois, Peroni etc”.

In the document obtained by website The Smoking Gun, she added: “North American beer is NOT acceptable.”

Adele also asked for an assortment of chewing gum, a small plate of “freshly made, individually wrapped sandwiches which must NOT contain tomatoes, vinegar, chilli or citrus fruit”.

Following a concert, her tour bus must be stocked with “bite-size chocolate bars, including Twix, Aero, Milky Way, and Mars, organic muesli and six cereal bars”.

However, the 23-year-old singer also showed her charitable side insisting anyone who receives free concert tickets must make a donation of at least $20 to the organisation SANDS (Stillborn And Neonatal Death Charity).

The document states: “All guests at all Adele shows will be asked for a minimum donation to charity of $20 per person, in cash, when they collect their tickets. There will be no exception to this rule.

“We will also expect that all guests of the Promoter and/or Venue to also make the same donation when collecting their tickets.”
