Tony Bennett has a list of bizarre requests while he is on tour - he refuses to travel in white limousines and only stays in hotel rooms with a nice view.

The veteran crooner insists that whenever he travels to a gig, he should be met at the airport by a "dark blue or black" car but "no white limousine".

In Bennett's tour rider, obtained by, the star is adamant he will only stay in hotel suites with "a view", and he also bans the serving of any food or drink at the concert venue while he is on stage.

However, the Rags to Riches singer's dressing room demands remain modest - he doesn't ask for any alcohol and simply suggests venue bosses provide him with bread and crackers, water, fruit juice, coffee and soda.
