British pop sensation Robbie Williams is set to take the stage in Tel Aviv's Park Hayarkon Saturday night, for his first ever concert in Israel. Like any true megastar diva, he made a number of special requests of his Israeli hosts.

Williams arrived for this stop on his “Let Me Entertain You” world tour on a private jet with his wife, two kids and their dog. Among his entourage was a personal make-up artist, a personal trainer, and a personal masseuse, Army Radio reported.

The backstage area prepared for him is 120 meters squared, and boasts a relaxation room and a massage room, Army Radio said. There is also a play room, with a playstation, X-box and 40-inch TV. There is even a hosting area, just in case President Reuven Rivlin, or former President Shimon Peres, pay the crooner a visit, Army Radio said. After all, you never know who might drop in.

But that's not all. Williams also requested a variety of flavored chewing gum, and healthy vegan food. As for a color scheme, the star specifically asked for purple and mocha.
