London: British singer John Newman has revealed he insists on being supplied with white socks, every venue he performs at.

The 25-year-old "Love Me Again" hitmaker said his tour rider, which includes grooming items to ensure he looks good, also has 50 socks, reported Female First.

"I have clean white socks. I have a lot of them on my rider. We keep them in my stage clothes bag, there's got to be 50 pairs in there," the singer said.

The singer said wherever he goes, he has "normal" requests for food, juice and alcohol. "I have hair spray, hair gel, and a leather shoe-polish brush. They're the weirdest things I think.

"And then the normal things. I have loads of vegetables and juice and things to keep me feeling alright. And then plenty of booze for when the evening gets good," he said.
