Paul McCartney has banned meat from his latest tour - he's serving vegetarian meals to all his crew members. The Beatles' star is taking his "Up and Coming Tour" through the U.S., South America and Europe, and the staunch animal rights activist is making sure all his employees give up meat for the duration of the trek.

A spokesman for the veteran rocker tells Britain's Sunday Express newspaper, "We will serve some 480 vegetarian meals a day to keep the crew going."

British singer Leona Lewis is also taking steps to make her upcoming tour meat-free - she's wiped animal products from the menu when she hits the road in May. She said, "The meat industry is polluting the environment. I've banned all meat from photoshoots to the tour itself simply because I don't support the meat industry."

On this planet, there is a difference of what is here now and what was here a couple of million years ago. 2+2=4

Free meat? He's offering unconscious drunk girls to the audience? Weird.

The heading should read "Meat-Free", NOT "Free-Meat". There is a HUGE difference.

educate yourself on what mass producing meat is doing to our bodies as well as the earth, not to mention the animals.
