At a recent concert in Goiania, Brazil, Paul McCartney competed for stage time with thousands of grasshoppers. One lady who attended the event described the “grim situation,” saying that “Paul was constantly shaking and scratching his head to escape locusts.”

McCartney however, handled it with professional aplomb matching his superstar status. Along with playing through the ordeal, at one point he even named one of the grasshoppers and introduced his new friend “Harold” to the audience.
