Paul McCartney: All You Need is Vegetables
es! Yes! I know 'All You Need Is Love' is a John song, but I thought it sounded better than 'Let it Beet' or 'The Long and Winding Rutabaga.'" - Sir Paul McCartney
All this vegetable talk is in regards to Sir Paul's recent appeal for everyone to go meatless on Mondays.
Sir Paul continues: "The ultimate goal of these meatless Mondays is to cut down on the amount of gaseous emissions from farm animals and thus slow down the effects of global warming. Apparently farm animals "emit" more greenhouse gases than all the world's cars combined -- sounds like we need hybrid cows not hybrid cars."
While it sounds a little odd to ask people to give up their Whoppers in order to stop bovine flatulence, Sir Paul has been a vegetarian for decades. Besides, this type of culinary activism certainly hasn't hurt the sale of Paul McCartney tickets.
Sir James Paul McCartney was born on June 18th, 1942 and is a former Beatle. McCartney is a multiple Grammy Award-winning English singer-songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, entrepreneur, film producer, record producer, painter, and animal rights activist. He gained worldwide fame as a member of The Beatles, alongside John Lennon, Ringo Starr and George Harrison.
This summer (2009), Paul is everywhere.
Just announced, the former Beatle is selling New York tickets for an added third show. This new date, the last of three Big Apple performances (July 17th and 18th), is scheduled for July 21st at the New York Mets' new ballpark, Citi Field.
These dates continue McCartney's tradition of performing at the Mets' home stadium. In 1965, the Beatles were the first music act to perform in the Mets' former home, Shea Stadium.
During Billy Joel's "Last Play at Shea," Sir Paul joined "Soused Billy" for one last sing-a-long before they tore the place down.
Now, Paul McCartney will be the first music act to perform at the Mets' new digs.
While it's definite that McCartney will play at the new Citi Field, rumors are swirling about Paul McCartney Boston tickets for two shows at venerated Fenway Park. Just imagine combining two great things, McCartney and Fenway!
The park's management has filed for a license to host two concerts, both with pyrotechnics, for August 5th and 6th. Those dates just happen to coincide with a Red Sox road trip.
Insiders believe Fenway management is waiting to reveal McCartney's first ever Fenway concerts until a June 22nd public hearing.
Fenway and Shea aren't the only historic North American performances Sir Paul has on his schedule in 2009. Paul McCartney Halifax tickets are on sale for a July 11th performance -- his only concert in Canada in 2009.
Sir Paul's gig in Halifax overlaps the famous Tall Ships Nova Scotia Festival. Promoters are expecting 60,000 fans to see McCartney rock the 'Fax.
Even at 67, Sir Paul McCartney is still delighting fans with his legendary music and he's still making rock and roll history. And just like when he was a Beatle, he's still trying to change the world, only now it's one meatless day at a time.
