Live and Let Veg: Meatless Monday Joins Paul McCartney on Tour

August 1st, 2016


We rock with Paul!
Meatless Monday will be rocking out with Sir Paul McCartney Aug. 7 when he takes his “One on One” tour to Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. While most of us here at Meatless Monday only play air guitar, we share something hugely important with this great cultural icon: the commitment to encourage people to improve their health and the health of the planet by going meat free one day a week.

A passionate advocate of many causes, McCartney in 2009 launched Meat Free Monday within the UK after many years of being a staunch vegetarian. Since then, along with his daughters Mary and Stella, he has created a website, a cookbook, and a vehicle to inspire activism at the grassroots level. Like Meatless Monday in the U.S., Sir Paul’s Meat Free Monday has inspired chefs, schools, parents, and students to make conscious choices to change their eating habits. Between us, all this effort has inspired over 40 countries worldwide to adopt their own versions of Meatless Monday!

Meatless Monday is excited to host a table at the “One on One” concert, so stop by and say hello. We’ll be featuring a photo booth with a special frame commemorating the concert and raffling off prizes for cookbooks and more. Plus, you’ll get an intimate chance to chat with us and get great tips on how to adopt Meatless Monday both in your home and in your community.

So, in honor of Sir Paul’s unbelievable 700 million albums sold across the globe, let’s “Come Together” on Aug. 7 and have a really “Beautiful Night”!
