Glasses Hotel Room Story 'Has No Basis'
The Rocket Man’s special treatment for his beloved specs at Brazil’s plush five star Ouro Minas resort, were revealed when concert organisers claimed the diva insisted his frames were kept at the right temperature too – 16 degrees Celsius to be exact.
‘Elton John asked for an extra room in the hotel for some of his collection of glasses because he needs a temperature of 16C to preserve the accessories,’ said a production organizer ahead of the 65-year-old’s gig in Belo Horizonte on Saturday.
But of course Elt’s glassy requests were not the only requests for the football mad and former Watford FC owner
The concert spokesperson continued: ‘What stands out is the request for a phone line with international access and, surprisingly, a television with access to local channels and cable.’
‘In the latter, there is yet another requirement: that among the channels, he specifically has the sports channels.’
Other rider essentials included four bottles of cranberry juice, a pint of fresh skimmed milk and two bottles of good quality Pinot Grigio wine, as well as eight small bottles of French
Evian water, and five large bottles or 12 small bottles of San Pellegrino sparkling water.
A spokesman for the music legend rubbished the claims about the singer’s alleged request.
According to the Daily Mail, a spokesperson for the Elton camp has denied that the, “my glasses need their own hotel room” claims have any grounds.
