Backstreet Booze

Band Requires

Beer at Shows

2/13/2009 5:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Bad Idea: Contractually binding a concert venue to provide a band with booze, when half of said band's members have alcohol problems ... like the Backstreet Boys.

But alas, clear as day in the rider for the Backstreet Boys' current tour, is the demand for 24 bottles of beer and two bottles of "high quality Italian or French red wine." A votre sante!

What makes this particularly funny (or sad, depending on your point of view) is that we have gotten video of both AJ McLean and Nick Carter out drinking within the last month -- both of whom have claimed to be sober.

I bet that half that beer is for others involved in the tour and not just the 4 bsb members! wow.... I bet that MANY other celebrities ask for piles of beer and no one makes a big deal about them!

it doesnt matter how long ago the list was written because the beers could have been for anybody. it's called having a posse.. and crew members. the company provides general food and drinks for crew members; it's a requirement.
