Paul McCartney is set to perform at a benefit concert that will help both the Old Vic Theatre in London and his Meat Free Monday campaign.
According to Contact Music, the vegetarian musician was recruited by Kevin Spacey to play to raise money for the theatre who’s roof is leaking and is in need of repairs since it was damaged during World War II.
The event, which also includes an art auction, will have a portion of the proceeds go towards McCartney’s Meat Free Monday campaign.
“We are thrilled Paul McCartney will lend his extraordinary talents on the evening alongside brilliant artists who’ve generously donated their artworks for auction,” said Spacey. “It’s set to be quite a night.”
The concert will take place at The Boiler House at Battersea Power Station and tickets are available starting from $750 (£500) up to $15,000 (£10,000) for a premium table for 10.
No word on if vegetarian snacks will be served, but if Sir McCartney has anything to do with it, concert goers might be in for a tasty meatless treat in addition to Lady Madonna and Michelle.
