Who knew?

Apparently Morrissey, the former lead singer of The Smiths (the most over-rated band in the history of mankind, and yes I am including Oasis) is on tour. The PETA-freaky Morrissey apparently got the folks at the Staples Center in Los Angeles to bump up the meat-free options from center vendors for his show.  the center

Promoters for the show announced Monday that the downtown arena's food service will incorporate a greatly expanded vegan and vegetarian menu the night of Moz's concert.
Contrary to earlier reports from Morrissey's representatives, however, the venue will not be going entirely meat-free that night. Meat concessions will still be available from Staples Center vendors, though backstage catering will be all-vegetarian.
“As we have done in the past, we are happy to create a menu with a greater variety of vegetarian items for our guests who prefer these types of options,” said Lee Zeidman, Sr. Vice President and General Manager of Staples Center and L.A. LIVE., in a statement today. “We respect Morrissey’s lifestyle and his concern for the wishes of so many of his fans and are happy that we are able to honor his requests in this manner.”  
I don't care what Morrissey talks the Staples Center into selling during his concert. I comment on this only because I was stunned to learn that 1) Morrissey is still performing in public and b) that he needs to (or is even able to) book venues larger than a broom closet. Go figure.
