Elton’s eccentric tour rider

Elton John has outdone himself by requesting an extra hotel room at each location on his recent Brazilian tour, just to store his collection of eyewear.  The rooms were kept at a constant temperature of 60 degrees in order to preserve his precious glasses and accessories.  Also on the Rocket Man’s tour rider are fresh flowers for his dressing room and hotel rooms, and something called pão de queijo, a popular Brazilian snack.
