Paul McCartney Battles Grasshoppers Onstage

On Thursday, May 9, during Paul McCartney‘s show in Goiânia, Brazil—the second  in the first trio of shows in his Out There! tour—the stage was invaded by a swarm of grasshoppers.

A consummate performer, McCartney endured thebugs and finished his song before pausing to comment on the odd moment., which released an exclusive video from the gig, shared the Amagansett resident and rock legend’s thoughts about the performance.

“Brazilian audiences are incredible so that’s why we keep coming back. All of the shows this week were incredible,” McCartney said, adding, “The crowds were just amazing and of course in Goiânia we had the grasshoppers join us, which was unbelievable. No one could see that coming!”

The Out There! tour will make its way to the Barclays Center in Brooklyn on June 8 and 10. Visit for tour info.
