Prince reportedly demands there be ‘no stairs’ at his hotels on his UK tour.
The Purple Rain hitmaker brought his Hit and Run tour to the UK in May after performing a series of impromptu gigs there earlier this year. And UK newspaper The Sun reports his rider includes a few unusual requests that must be filled before the shows go on. ‘Prince’s list of demands has been going out to all his hotels in the UK before he arrives at them. His requests all have to be fulfilled or he won’t turn up to play,’ a source said. In addition to the apparent ‘no stairs‘ rule, paintings or photos of animals or faces are also reportedly banned. And Prince has reportedly also demanded all books and ‘obstructive rugs’ be removed from his suite after each show.
The Sun reports it’s far from the first time Prince has made such bizarre demands.
