Morrissey has been given a big meat-free boost as he prepares for his live comeback after illness after bosses at the Staples Center in Los Angeles agreed to go vegetarian for the rocker’s show on 1 March.
The concert will mark the first time the 20,000-capacity venue goes all-veggie as all vendors will keep their meat products out of sight during the show – and the venue’s McDonald’s outlets will be shuttered.
According to a press release from Morrissey’s representative, the same request had previously been denied to Sir Paul McCartney.
The decision is a big win for animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), who will benefit from a portion of ticket sales.
Morrissey plans to resume his North American tour on 26 February after cancelling a string of dates to recover from a bleeding ulcer.
