This concert was the second of two dates in Austin, Texas.
From Paul McCartney Honors PETA’s Most Vegan-Friendly City, June 6, 2013:
Like most people, we love us some Paul McCartney at The PETA Files—although my man crush has nothing on the adoration of one blogger who shall remain nameless (but here’s a hint)—and here’s yet another reason why: Between his two sold-out performances at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, Paul joined PETA Senior Vice President Dan Mathews to present Mayor Lee Leffingwell with an award recognizing Austin as PETA’s Most Vegan-Friendly City in the U.S.!
[…] As Paul pointed out, “The influx of forward-thinking musicians and techies, the thriving university, and the food trucks all over the city run by young veg-friendly hipsters have made Austin the absolute cutting-edge place for green eating.”
As Sir Paul McCartney performed in Austin for the first time in history, Mayor Lee Leffingwell presented McCartney with a Key to the City of Austin and an honorary certificate of Austin citizenship.
The exchange happened Thursday while McCartney, a supporter of the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals presented Mayor Leffingwell with an award from PETA declaring Austin the Most Vegan-Friendly City in the U.S.
Leffingwell said he was honored to accept the award, adding “We’re especially proud to be a vegan-friendly city and appreciate the advocacy of groups like PETA and leaders like Sir Paul McCartney, who are helping to bring healthier food choices into the mainstream.”
In a letter asking Mayor Leffingwell to accept the award, Sir McCartney wrote, “The influx of forward-thinking musicians and techies, the thriving university, and the food trucks all over the city run by young veg-friendly hipsters have made Austin the absolute cutting-edge place for green eating.”
Prior to the Thursday night concert, Mayor Leffingwell told McCartney, “Here in the Live Music Capital of the World, we love music almost more than anything and our admiration and appreciation for the music of Paul McCartney – as an individual and as a Beatle, knows no bounds.”
