In A First: Staples Center McDonald’s Closing For Morrissey Concert
The vegan super powers of Morrissey managed to convince the Staples Center to go meat-free, an achievement even Paul McCartney couldn’t accomplish.
If you are planning to attend Morrissey’s sold-out March 1 concert beware: The LA venue will only offer vegetarian food, for the first time ever. That means all the McDonald’s outlets there will be closed, Billboard reports. McCartney had made the same request, but got turned down. “I don’t look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals,” Morrissey says in a statement.
A portion of the proceeds will benefit PETA… if there is a concert after all. Rolling Stone points out that Morrissey has canceled a few shows recently due to health concerns including a bleeding ulcer, but he’s set to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live a week from today and resume touring the following day.
