Pharrell Williams Unusual Tour Rider Revealed: Pharrell News

(Radio.com) Pharrell Williams loves Carl Sagan so much that for his 2015 concert season, he demands a framed photo be placed in his dressing room, according to his tour rider.

That's just at a bare minimum, though. Mr. Williams would prefer that two framed photos of the astrophysicist in his dressing room.'I watched 'Cosmos' as a child and I was always blown away by Sagan's mind and the way he thought," Williams told The Today Show last June. 'When I look at that picture I realize how lucky we all are--to be on this planet and be able to do what we love to do every day. Seeing Carl's face reminds me of it."

For those who don't know, a tour rider is a list of the items that an artist requests of the concert promoters in each city they're playing. Typically, the lists consists of otherwise mundane items like clean towels, specialty foods, full-length mirrors, Internet connectivity etc. But some artists enjoy adding items to the list for comedy's sake.

According to The Smoking Gun, who acquired a copy of Williams' rider, the "Happy" singer also requires Nilla Wafers, alkaline water, and 'SUPER COLD" sodas. Does that mean each Coke can must be bathed in liquid nitrogen? Read more here.
