Forget Beatles… now he’s all about the grasshoppers! Paul McCartney’s stage is invaded by insects during Brazilian show

His band The Beatles are arguably the most  famous musical group of all time.

But on Tuesday night, Paul McCartney was more  about the grasshoppers as he found his stage invaded by a swarm of the insects  during a concert in Goiania, Brazil.

The 70-year-old musician was forced to  complete his three-hour performance as clouds of the Esperanca  Grilo creatures buzzed around  him.

However, animal-lover Macca appeared unfazed  by the stage intrusion as he pushed through and delighted the 47,000 crowd with  his songs.

Sir Paul even introduced one of the little  grasshoppers as Harold during a performance of hit song Hey Jude.

As he sang the track, Sir Paul turned to  Harold as he sang the words ‘the movement you need is on your shoulder’, adding  ‘it certainly is now’.

Also during the show, Sir Paul was seen  inviting a young woman up onto  the stage so he could sign the Beatles tattoo  she has on her ribcage.

And it appears the fans certainly appreciated  Sir Paul pushing through the infestation – holding up banners thanking him for  the concert.

Sir Paul had kicked off his Out There! tour  in Brazil earlier this week, and  will be travelling to countries including Poland, Italy and Austria as well as various venues  in  America before the tour draws to a close in Seattle on July 19th.

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.
