A Beatle takes on the Grasshoppers

Paul McCartney has had some problems with insects.  A giant swarm of leaping grasshoppers decided to get in on his show May 6th in Brazil.  Those who attended say that there were so many grasshoppers swarming during the second stop on his Out There world tour, that they covered the stage at some points in the show.  Being the animal lover he is, McCartney made a friend of one of the hoppers perched on his shoulder, calling him “Harold.”  Paul McCartney continues his tour May 18th in Orlando, Florida.
