Staples Center to Offer Veg Menus for Morrissey

The Staples Center will create meat-free menus for Morrissey fans during his upcoming show.

Long-time animal activist and former The Smiths singer Morrissey asked that Los Angeles’ Staples Center not serve meat during his concert on March 1st. While the venue stated that cutting out all meat goes against its philosophy of offering a wide variety of food options, during the show, the Staples Center will expand its menu to include more veg dishes and provide solely plant-based catering backstage. Promoter Goldenvoice will donate a portion of the proceeds generated from the concert to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. The singer released a statement saying he considers this move more of a victory for animals everywhere than one for himself.
