McCartney bans meat on music tourApril 6th, 2010 - 1:47 am ICT by IANS
London, April 6 (IANS) Beatle legend Sir Paul McCartney has banned meat from his latest tour, as he’s serving vegetarian meals to all his crewmembers.
Macca, as he is fondly called, is taking his “Up and Coming Tour” through the US, South America and Europe, and the staunch animal rights activist is making sure all his employees give up meat for the duration of the trek, reports telegraph.co.uk.
“We will serve some 480 vegetarian meals a day to keep the crew going,” said a spokesman for McCartney.
British singer Leona Lewis is also taking steps to make her upcoming tour meat-free. She’s wiped animal products from the menu when she hits the road in May.
