The Rolling Stones - Rolling Stones Demand Cricket Scores And Snooker Table On Tour

Veteran rockers The Rolling Stones take a snooker table with them on tour and demand a Tv showing the latest cricket games.

The band is preparing to kick off a North American trek next month (May13), as well as a handful of shows in the U.K., marking their first real return to the road since their 2005-2007 A Bigger Bang Tour.

It has now emerged the musicians like to take a snooker table to all their gig venues while they are on tour and they demand to be near a Tv showing the latest cricket updates.

The band's backstage rider, issued for the A Bigger Bang shows and obtained by Thesmokinggun.com, also reveals the stars all like having a bouquet of lillies in their dressing room, apart from frontman Sir Mick Jagger, who bans flowers from his backstage area.

The rockers also have personal nicknames for their dressing rooms - Jagger's is called Work Out, guitarist Keith Richards relaxes in Camp X-Ray, Ronnie Wood's room is named Recovery, and Charlie Watts has called his Cotton Club.

The 50 and Counting Tour kicks off in California in May (13).
