Over the weekend, Morrissey played what was supposed to be a meat-free show at Madison Square Garden. While it was completely void of any meat products in the general admission areas, those in corporate suites were offered platters of brisket, sushi, meatballs and more. A woman named Jessica Pearson offered photos, along with a brief statement, to Gothamist, which you can see below. Madison Square Garden shared this statement in regards to the mishap, “We changed the menu in the public areas for the show on Saturday night and didn’t make the same changes in the private areas. This was an oversight and will be fixed the next time.”
This weekend I attended the Morrissey show at Madison Square Garden. Moz proudly announced that it was a historic day as Madison Square Garden went fully Vegan. Turns out it was vegan everywhere BUT the corporate suites. MSG offered up House Made Meatball Sliders, Hill Country Brisket Sandwiches, Cereal-Crusted Chicken Fingers, and Fresh Sushi Platters. Friends on the main floor ate vegan hot dogs. Thought you would find it amusing—though I’m sure Mr. Morrissey will not.
