May 1, 2015

Moira Colley 202-483-7382

Morrissey has a general touring policy that forbids meat to be served at venues where he plays. Menus have been adapted all over the world, or burger, chicken and fish stands have simply closed for the night. He also has PETA info tables at each show and screens slaughterhouse footage when he plays “Meat Is Murder.”

— Dan Matthews, Senior Vice President, PETA
