When Boyz II Men appear tonight at the House of Blues, they want only “white meat chicken, no fried.” They’d also like baked salmon, steamed lobster, grilled jumbo shrimp, grilled tuna, and pasta (“prepared in virgin olive oil”), all served on “fine china and dinnerware…
along with glasses. No Styrofoam or plastic utensils will be accepted.”
For snacks, they want one large tin of King Leo peppermint candy, one large bag of Archway Oatmeal cookies (“low fat”), and one large bag of Life Savers (“assorted flavors”). The drink list includes a case each of spring water and assorted Fruitopias and a gallon each of cranberry and pineapple juice.
Their backing band gets a deli tray and a case of Heineken beer to split between them. No liquor for the male and female dancers, though they do get soft drinks, water, and a “basket of assorted breads.”
At this writing, ticketcity.com is selling general-admission seats for $142 each.
