Only a few days remain before British rockers Coldplay make their Colombian debut in the country’s capital and they’re expected to draw huge crowds. But what have the group demanded during their stay? Here’s the band’s rider, according to website estereofonica.
Members Chris Martin (piano, vocals), Jon Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums) and Guy Berriman (bass), will allegedly be arriving in Colombia in a fleet of 12 ultramodern tour buses and flanked by a 75-strong entourage, which will go directly to a undisclosed hotel in the north of Bogota. There the group will occupy an entire floor of the establishment.
At the hotel they will be presented with twenty bottles of specially imported French and New Zealand wine, as well as some of the best local produce that Colombia has to offer in terms of tropical fruit and cut flowers.
However, they’re not all extravagant demands – each band member will also be given a postcard to send their families at home, a tradition that the band keeps in every new location that they visit.
