All you need are vegetables, former Beatle Paul McCartney says as he prepares to show his well-being by undertaking a new concert tour.

McCartney, 59, who is ready to hit the road again for the first time in eight years, says being vegetarian for the past quarter of a century has kept him going strong.

The singer-songwriter became vegetarian more than 25 years ago along with his late wife Linda.

“The benefit of a vegetarian diet is that it gives you more energy,” McCartney said in a statement released in London at the start of Britain’s National Vegetarian Week.

“That’s certainly the case with me, seeing as I’m now looking at going out on tour again at an age when most people are thinking of retiring.”

McCartney revealed last month that he was planning a concert tour for around the time his new studio album comes out in September. He is currently recording in the United States.

“Recently I recorded 18 songs for this new album in just two weeks,” he said.
