Live Nation Goes Veg

Promoter chooses to ban meat at concerts thanks to Chrissie Hynde.

Legendary rocker and vegan restaurateur Chrissie Hynde is making more noise with her veg ways than ever before. Known for banning meat at her concerts, Hynde has been a long-time animal rights activist as well as the lead singer of The Pretenders. In order to avoid running into problems, concert promoter Live Nation has decided to completely ban meat sales from any upcoming concerts in which Hynde is performing. In lieu of cheeseburgers and corndogs, concert-goers can expect veggie burgers and dogs, and New Yorkers can even attend a pre-concert veggie barbecue. Live Nation certainly knows how to rock out the right way.
