Default No Meat on Macca Tour

While I respect Paul's right to be a vegetarian, I think it's ridiculous for him to insist that his tour staff not eat meat (or wear leather) during the entire tour.


McCartney issues a no-meat decree

Paul McCartney is keeping the set of his concert meat-free.

Paul McCartney is performing without Wings. Or thighs or drumsticks.

Crew members on the set of the singer’s concert are up in arms because the staunch vegetarian has banned the eating of meat by anyone working on the tour.

“It’s completely crazy,” one worker in Oslo, Norway, where the former Beatle is performing tonight, told the paper Aftenposten, according to our translator. “We’re supposed to work from eight till eight each day, and aren’t served anything but salad and vegetarian food. I can’t live without meat doing this kind of work, and will defy the ban and bring my own lunch packet with meat.” According to another local report, the crew is also forbidden from wearing leather belts or shoes.

“We can’t control what they do in their spare time,” a spokesman for the concert organizers told Aftenposten. “But as long as they’re inside the stadium area, it’s correct that they are banned from eating meat.”
