Vegan Celebrity – Morrissey Convinces Madison Square Garden To Go Vegan For His Concert

 

An upcoming Morrissey concert at Madison Square Garden will be meatless, thanks to the efforts by the tireless advocates for animal rights. Moz will play the NYC venue on June 27.

“We’d have to close half the floor,” one staffer told the New York Daily News, while Daily Burger owner Drew Nieporent claimed that it was “the first time I’m hearing about it.”

Daily Burger operates a location at MSG.

He added, “But I love my man Morrissey. He’s a wonderful artist, so I wouldn’t mind. He can do whatever he wants . . . We’ll just go and enjoy the music.”

A rep for PETA explained Moz’s position to Gigwise, saying, “Morrissey has a general touring policy that forbids meat to be served at venues where he plays. Menus have been adapted all over the world, or burger, chicken and fish stands have simply closed for the night. He also has PETA info tables at each show and screens slaughterhouse footage when he plays ‘Meat Is Murder.'”
