He might be performing in beef country, but Sir Paul McCartney does not want beef products anywhere near him. Several employees and ushers at Intrust Bank Arena are reporting today that they received e-mails informing them that no meat products will be allowed backstage at tonight’s concert, as McCartney – an outspoken vegetarian and animal rights activist – conducts a “no meat tour.”Read MoreWhat you need to know if you’re going to Paul McCartney tonightWhat you need to know if you’re going to Paul McCartney tonightIn the e-mail, employees who planned to bring lunches that included meat were asked to eat them discreetly in their offices or in the locker area. Those who want to enjoy meaty concession items can do so if they take them to a designated area on the upper concourse after the concert starts.The concession stands serving attendees at the concert will still serve their regular meat-filled fare, said Christine Pileckas, the arena’s director of sales and marketing. But many of the concessionaires will be adding vegetarian options as an ode to the guest of honor.“It is a vegetarian tour and as a venue, we will try to do everything we can to respect that,” Pileckas said.In other McCartney food news, a few concession items (including some that include meat) will be renamed tonight in a McCartney-esque manner. For example, the arena’s Wild Leaf concessionaire will be serving a Banh Mi On the Run. Also available: A Let it B-B-Q sandwich, a Sgt. Pepperoni Pizza and some Live and Eat Fries.
