Elton John requests separate hotel room for spectacles

Mar 6 2013, 5:59am CST | by

Sir Elton John asked for a separate hotel room for his glasses ahead of a gig in Brazil.

The 'Rocket Man' hitmaker requested the additional quarters to house his spectacles at the Ouro Minas five-star hotel in Belo Horizonte ahead of his show on Saturday (03.09.13), and he asked organizers of the gig to ensure the temperature of the extra room was maintained at 16 degrees Celsius (60.8 Fahrenheit).

A spokesperson for the show's production company told the Daily Telegraph newspaper: "Elton John asked for an extra room in the hotel for some of his collection of glasses because he needs a temperature of 16C to preserve the accessories."

The 65-year-old star also made a number of beverage requests including four bottles of cranberry juice, a pint of fresh skimmed milk and two bottles of good quality Pinot Grigio wine, as well as eight small bottles of French Evian water, and five large bottles or 12 small bottles of San Pellegrino sparkling water.

Elton - a former owner of English soccer club Watford FC - also asked for large vases of red and white roses and access to cable TV, specifically sports channels, as well as an international phone line, which took the spokesperson by surprise.

The spokesperson added: "What stands out is the request for a phone line with international access and, surprisingly, a television with access to local channels and cable.

"In the latter, there is yet another requirement: that among the channels, he specifically has the sports channels."

Elton will perform at the Mineirao stadium in front of 60,000 people on Saturday, and some tickets have cost up to $345.

When nobody wants to see your tits anymore, you’ve got two choices. Breastfeeding selfies or commissioning a street artist to paint you as a naked Marilyn Monroe. Lindsay Lohan’s probation terms don’t allow her to handle infants, so she paid a dude in London to paint her tits. The great families of Europe have been sitting for portraits for generations. The less great families have been paying street artists and latex sex toy ma ...

Oct 22 2014 8:54am CDT | Source: Music Week

As Patrick Bruel proves, there’s no right time for international artists to first come to the UK. The French singer has been compared to Bruce Springsteen and Michael Bublé, but his recent show at the Royal Albert Hall is his first in the UK, despite a career spanning three decades. Actually, Bruel thinks the UK is one of the toughest markets to break. “It’s the most important, but it’s the most difficult,” he tells Music Week. “More than America. Everybody say ...
