Before Willie Nelson plays Harrah’s Rincon Casino on Sunday, September 7, he requires the venue to post a $5000 deposit with the William Morris Agency and another $10,000 “shall be presented to the Artist’s representative, prior to performance.” Also, “Local promoter agrees to furnish management 50 complimentary tickets (the very best seats)…available the day of the show.”

The backstage contract instructs, “It is the sole responsibility of the purchaser to make sure each venue maintains a smoke-free environment.… Please note that the backstage area is not a rest area for security personnel on break.”

Nelson’s bus requirements include three butterfly-cut organic free-range pork chops (“thin cut lean”), two gallons of Horizon Organic two-percent milk, a six-pack of Dr Pepper, four organic white potatoes, a bunch of organic red grapes, and two gallons of George’s “Always Active” Aloe Vera.
