Foo Fighters Unveil Hilarious Tour Rider Activity Book

Foo Fighters Unveil Hilarious Tour Rider Activity Book
They're one of the biggest rock bands in the world, but Foo Fighters have never lost their sense of fun. The band are currently in the midst of a massive world tour, and the group have concocted a crazy and hilarious tour rider just for the occasion.

The nine-page tour rider also serves as a colouring and activity book. The games range from a word search of undesirable foods ("cheap ass soda," "pubic hair") to maze that espouses the need for hired catering.

What's funniest about the tour rider is that, in addition to being a joke, it's also very passive aggressive. It contains a detailed breakdown of exactly which kind of ice is preferred, and complains about old deli meats and "promoter pasta." It even contains veiled threats like "You want us to come back" and "There MAY be an outbreak of burning cars in the parking lot." We're guessing that the promoters aren't laughing.

Head over to The Smoking Gun to read the whole thing. If you have a pack of crayons handy, you might even want to print it out and fill it in yourself. See the dates below.
