LA’s Staples Centre to go vegetarian for Morrissey concert
Los Angeles (dpa) – Former Smiths frontman Morrissey has taken meat off the menu at Los Angeles’ Staples Center for his sold out show there on March 1, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.
Morrissey, a well-known vegan, who in his heyday with the Smiths proclaimed ”meat is murder,” reportedly demanded the shuttering of the venue’s McDonalds stands and a ban on meat sales from other vendors as a condition of appearing.
The report said it was the first time the venue had agreed to such a condition, despite a similar request in the past by Paul McCartney.
