Prune Juice Is So Rock 'n' Roll

Before Kansas plays Valley View Casino on Saturday, September 12, they need an “articulate female volunteer for merchandise sales” who must be “available one hour prior to doors opening and to remain one hour after performance.” Dressing-room requirements include a bag of Jolly Rancher candy (“assorted”), a half-case each of Sharp’s and O’Doul’s nonalcoholic beer (“bottles only”), a six-pack of 7UP (“no Sprite”), a half-gallon of Ocean Spray Ruby Red Tangerine Juice, and one quart of prune juice.

When James Taylor takes the stage at Valley View Casino on Tuesday, September 15, “There are to be no uniformed guards in front of the stage” during his performance. He expects his dressing room stocked with two bars of Neutrogena soap, two boxes of Kleenex tissues, a box of Alacer’s lemon or lime Emergen-C packs, and that day’s copies of the New York Times, the Los Angeles Times, and USA Today (“except ‘Weekends’ ”).

When blink-182 appears at Cricket Amphitheatre on Wednesday, September 16, their backstage requirements include six malt nut Power Bars, a box of Cap’n Crunch cereal, three 16-ounce cans of salted cashews, a bag of M&M Crispies, a bottle of echinacea, and one Kodak color disposable camera.
