Get back! Sir Paul McCartney swaps Beatles for grasshoppers as his stage is invaded by the insects
Wednesday 08 May 2013
Sir Paul McCartney has swapped Beatles for grasshoppers - after a stage invasion by a swarm of the creatures.
The star managed to complete his performance despite being buzzed by a cloud of the insects as he played on stage in Brazil.
Animal-lover Sir Paul carried on for almost three hours in Goiania as he remained unfazed by the grasshoppers which even landed on him during the show.
One remained on his shoulder for much of the show and the musician introduced his new pal to the 47,000-strong crowd as Harold.
As he sang "Hey Jude", Sir Paul turned to Harold as he sang the words "the movement you need is on your shoulder", adding "it certainly is now".
The music superstar opened his Out There! tour in Brazil this week and he is due to travel across six countries in the coming months.
His set lists have included rarely performed songs such as "Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite", "All Together Now" and "Eight Days A Week", which he played live only once before the tour began, with The Beatles in 1965.
