It doesn’t even matter if you’re Sir Paul McCartney, if Brazilian grasshoppers don’t like your music they’re going to let you know about it – so was the message the feisty insects gave to Macca as he performed on stage in Brazil recently.

In fairness to the grasshoppers, not all of them were out there lambasting the former Beatle’s performance, with one – who the artist called Harold – sitting on his shoulder for most of his show in front of 47,000 people. In fairness to McCartney too he didn’t let the sudden swarm stop him from completing his mighty near-three hour set in Goiania either. With ‘Harold’ on his shoulder for his big hit ‘Hey Jude,’ The Independent reports that McCartney turned to him as he sang the words "the movement you need is on your shoulder", adding "it certainly is now".

It’s still early days for McCartney’s Out There! tour in Brazil, with the star having only just kicked off proceedings this week. He is also due to travel across six countries in the coming months and fans should be in for a treat, given that his set lists so far have included rarely performed songs such as ‘Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite’, ‘All Together Now’ and ‘Eight Days A Week’, which he played live only once before the tour began, with The Beatles in 1965.
