Fake Metallica Tour Rider

Tour Riders are full of notoriously wacky requests from bands. Remember the "No Brown M&Ms" in Van Halen's? We found Metallica's 2004, 24-page rider and there are some, let's say, interesting things on there. But we added one that is a fake. Can you figure it out?

METALLICA TOUR RIDER:

  • 2 Gallons of Orange Juice
  • 24 bottles of non-carbonated mineral water
  • 16 20-lb bags of ice
  • Bacon must be served at every meal
  • A washing machine hookup must be provided
  • Coleman's hot English mustard
  • 1 bottle of Absinthe with glasses and sugar cubes
  • A fresh vegetable tray, heavy on carrots and celery
  • Toaster
  • Pancake mix

See below for the answer.

 


Metallica are at MetLife on Sunday and then at Nassau Veteran's Memorial Coliseum on Wednesday. 


 

Give up?

 

Ok. Here it is: 

  • 1 bottle of Absinthe with glasses and sugar cubes

We totally made that one up.


The washing machine is totally real, BTW. It's the most metal washing machine ever:
