The Rolling Stones return to Omaha this weekend for the first time in four decades. Their contractual perks are tame compared to other top acts but they will insist on a few items.
Mick Jagger has been singing about "no satisfaction" for years but face it, it's just a song. These guys are rock stars and their contracts guarantee that they'll get what they want.
Stan Benis knows that. He's been looking after rock stars' needs almost as long as the Stones have been touring and he says in that time performance contracts have changed a lot.
He says those contracts are a, "lot tamer now than what they used to be, you know. It was a lot more partying going on in the late 70s and early 80s than there is now."
Now the plants the stars ask for are flowers. That's where Piccolos florists come in.
Jill Overkamp of Piccolos says, "They came to us. We actually just did Paul McCartney too so they have a certain list of requirements that they like to see in the back rooms or on the stages."
Most of the Stones requested white Casablanca lilies, an uncommon flower special order.
Back at the hotel, each musician gets a room with a large mirror. While the accommodations look Spartan, Benis says they're quite luxurious.
"Most of them are locker rooms and just like, you know, we have four of those as well as, very few of them will have four star dressing rooms like this."
The Stones' contract calls for a number of other things. The most important is a satellite television connection complete with a channel showing cricket.
A snooker table might be more important. They bring their own.
