Brazil greets Paul McCartney with a plague of grasshoppers in his face

BEING a Beatle isn’t easy. When you’re trying to do a show, you’re met by most gussets and a wall of screams. However, in Brazil, they like to do things a bit more Biblical.

And so, to Sir Paul McCartney who played a show in South America and found himself hit by a plague of grasshoppers.

During his 3 hour gig in Goiania, Macca was bombarded by the insects. Tom Jones gets a hail of knickers, and poor old Paul gets a mouth filled with horrible bugs. But, then, he is Beatle (geddit?!).

At one point in the show, with typical thumbs-aloft-wackiness, Macca introduced the 47,000 members of the audience to his new friend “Harold”.

During his rendition of Hey Jude, McCartney looked to Harold while singing the lines “the movement you need is on your shoulder”, adding “it certainly is now”.
