SUPERSTAR DJ Fatboy Slim is set for Belfast next Saturday to play Giant’s Park at Dargan Road and his rider list is in.
I managed to get a sneak peak at the DJâ€™s backstage demands and surprisingly they arenâ€™t that bad despite being a little weird.
Famed for chart topping tracks such as Praise You and Right Here Right Now, Norman Cook (AKA Fatboy) has requested everything from Organic carrot juice, self-righteous organic peanut butter and two pints of fat-free milk to smoothies, mineral water, energy drinks â€“ nothing that out of the ordinary.
But a source at Planet Love Promotions, who are running the event, said thatâ€™s not all. My insider added: â€œNorman has asked for a â€˜A Louisville Slugger baseball bat + sponge ballâ€™ and even stated â€˜not a real baseball as things get brokenâ€™ as well as â€˜six air-hornsâ€™.â€
And I can also reveal he wonâ€™t be having a drink when heâ€™s here either.
Heâ€™s requested â€œno alcoholâ€ in his changing room because he â€œno longer drinksâ€ and is â€œfollowing a healthy lifestyleâ€ with wife Zoe Ball.
Also appearing on the bill at Giantâ€™s Park are Zane Lowe, who requested â€œfour limes and a copy of the latest edition of NMEâ€, and Kissy Sell Out, who want â€œfruit sandwichesâ€.
Joining them on stage will be Deadmau5, Sidney Samson, Thomas Gandey and Belfast’s very own DJ Mog.
If you missed out getting tickets to the sell-out gig I have some great news for you â€“ last night promoters released an additional 100 VIP tickets for sale via www.ticketmaster.ie and www.plmpromotions .
