'Meat Is Murder' singer Morrissey succeeds in turning LA's Staples Centre vegetarian
Singer Morrissey is to stage a totally vegetarian gig when he resumes his tour after a bout of illness which prompted him to pull a number of US shows.
The former Smiths star's performance at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles on 1 March will see food outlets selling nothing but meat-free food.
An on-site McDonald's will close for the evening as the venue becomes completely vegetarian for the first time. Some proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the charity Peta which campaigns against animal cruelty.
Morrissey has recently been treated for a bleeding ulcer and an oesophagus condition which prompted the cancellation of a number of shows as he was told to rest.
He is due to resume performing with an appearance on US TV on 26 February.
Morrissey said of his LA show: "I don't look upon it as a victory for me, but a victory for the animals."
