After canceling a series of shows due to health issues, Morrissey is playing a sold out show at LA's Staples Center, but there's a unique caveat: At the singer's request, the entire arena has agreed to go completely vegetarian for the show. They've also agreed to shut down the on-site McDonald's.
"I don't look upon it as a victory for me," said Morrissey, "but a victory for the animals."
Although PETA has rated the arena among the top vegetarian-friendly venues, the singer's victory comes after a similar request was denied Paul McCartney, which strikes us here at Zumic as marginally puzzling. Perhaps Morrissey has finally surpassed The Beatles in animal rights clout.
