Morrissey - Los Angeles Venue Agrees To Go Veggie For Morrissey

Morrissey has been given a big meat-free boost as he prepares for his live comeback after illness after bosses at the Staples Center in Los Angeles agreed to go vegetarian for the rocker's show on 1 March (13).

The concert will mark the first time the 20,000-capacity venue goes all-veggie as all vendors will keep their meat products out of sight during the show - and the venue's MCDonald's outlets will be shuttered.

According to a press release from Morrissey's representative, the same request had previously been denied to Sir Paul MCCartney.

The decision is a big win for animal rights group People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta), who will benefit from a portion of ticket sales.

Morrissey plans to resume his North American tour on 26 February (13) after cancelling a string of dates to recover from a bleeding ulcer.
