When Kid Rock appears at Pala Casino on Wednesday, September 17, his dressing room requires a clothes rack with 12 hangers, a bottle of shampoo, a bottle of hair conditioner, a pack of white crew socks, a pack of white T-shirts (“size medium with pocket”), a pack of white boxer shorts (“Fruit of the Loom or Hanes”), a pack of white tank tops (“size large A-Line”), a toothbrush, a pack of Tums, and a tube of ChapStick.

Expected munchies include a large bag of pretzels, a large bag of Tostitos, a large bag of Munchos, a can of cheese dip, a tray of shrimp cocktail and sauce, a can of assorted mixed nuts, and a quart of potato salad (“chilled”). Drinks: a six-pack each of grape soda, orange soda, and Hawaiian Punch, and a half gallon of “vitamin D milk.”

Each truck driver and bus driver gets a sandwich (“no turkey”), fruit (“a piece”), chips, and candy. “Three of these sandwiches must be peanut butter and jelly.” (from thesmokinggun.com)

Let's hope Pala gets it right, or they may be in for a screaming yellow zonker of a surprise. Rock cancelled a recent gig in England over his rider demands He told a UK newspaper:

"They treated me like a f***. There was just one trailer for my whole band. We had no water, no bathroom, no rider."

"The final straw was when they wouldn’t give my crew any food or drinks vouchers."

"I called the promoter and told him he had two hours to get it sorted, or I was out. They did nothing, so I visited the promoter’s office, took a p**s on his couch, and left."
