Though he’s been sidetracked by a bleeding ulcer and Barrett’s esophagus, Morrissey did get a bit of good news about his upcoming concert at LA’s Staples Center on March 1st. For the first time ever, Staples Center will go completely vegetarian to appease Lord Moz. Via Pitchfork:
The Staples Center and promoter Goldenvoice will donate a portion of ticket proceeds to PETA.
Among the closed vendors are McDonald’s outlets. In a press release, Morrissey said, “I don’t look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals.” The release also states that the Staples Center previously denied that same request to Paul McCartney.
