SITE crew preparing for Sir Paul McCartney’s show at Perth’s nib Stadium on December 2 have been told caterers will provide them with vegan food only.
“All the crew members have to eat vegan food,” a crew member said.
“No one’s allowed to eat meat for three weeks on site.”
“It has to be vegan food rider.”
It’s not the first time the animal activist has encouraged others to follow his diet.
McCartney, pictured, reportedly demanded only vegan food be sold in the concourse at his concert in Illinois in July. Offerings included vegan chilli fries, vegan nacho grande and buffalo cauliflower and fries.
Also in July, employees at Intrust Bank Arena in Kansas reported they received emails informing them no meat products would be allowed backstage. Those who wanted to eat meat were confined to a designated area on the upper concourse after the concert started. The 75-year-old has banned animal food products from his rider when he performed in Canada in 2013.
It was reported he would not perform unless show organisers confirmed no meat would be eaten backstage.
He also said he did not want any furniture in his dressing room to be made of animals at his Driving USA Tour, as in 2002.
