Sir Paul, His Kids & Yoko Host Meat-Free Monday!

Paul McCartney and Yoko Ono appeared together in London Monday to promote a new campaign for Meat-Free Mondays, reports ITN.

The purpose is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, McCartney said, in a video on his website.

"Hi there. Welcome to Paul And it's me speaking with my voice to you. Hey, listen, we're launching a campaign, me and the family, called "Meat Free Monday." And that's gonna be launched in the UK on June the 15th.

Now this is a campaign that's already happening in the U.S. and in Australia and basically what it is is maybe encouraging people to not eat meat on a Monday. It's been proved, or it's been suggested, anyway, that if this was to happen, it would have a hugely beneficial effect on the climate.

So this is something you could do for the environment. It's kind of easy to do. You've had too much over the weekend, anyway. And you're all running down to the gym to try and work it off. So just have a meat free Monday. It'd be a great thing to do. We're gonna launch it anyway in the UK on June 15th.

So have a think about it. If you're interested, look up the website for more details, Meat Free Monday website, that's soon gonna be available. And join us in this effort. Reduce meat. Cut it out on Mondays."

Paul Adds Third NYC Concert Date

After selling out two stadium shows at the Mets' Citi Field, Paul McCartney has added a third performance set for July 21. The addition of the third show follows the five minute sellout of the July 17 and July 18 concerts.

The trio of concerts - the first ever at Citi Field - will feature McCartney playing classics from his catalog, including Beatles, Wings and solo material.

These inaugural concert events at Citi Field mark the latest in a series of landmark performances that tie McCartney to the Mets home turf: First it was The Beatles' legendary musical christening of Shea Stadium in 1965 and then McCartney's special appearance at Billy Joel's "Last Play at Shea" show that closed the stadium last year.

Paul To Score Animated Children's Film

Paul McCartney is to score his first feature film in over 40 years after signing on to create the music for an animated kids movie he wrote.

It will mark McCartney’s first effort at composing music for a movie since 1967’s The Family Way.
