Prince once requested $10,000 worth of flowers on his rider for one of his concerts.

Concert promoter Danny Zelisko - who presented shows for legendary artists such as Sir Paul McCartney, Queen and Bruce Springsteen - has spilled all in his new tome, 'All Exce$$ - Occupation Concert Promoter', and revealed Prince's unique ask for his dressing room.

“One rider that I thought was really out there was Prince’s. His rider asked for this special kind of roses or carnations – from Holland. He wanted an entire dressing room filled with these flowers, and it was going to cost $10,000.”

Since they were coming from Holland I assume must have been a Concert in Europe?
