Ever meet someone famous at a U2 concert?

What celebrity would you want to randomly bump into in GA?

I was near Cindy Crawford in Anaheim in 2011. I took a picture of her shoes.

In Vegas 2009 we were by the soundboard, and I exchanged a thumbs up with Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas (I couldn't help it).

I chased Paul McGuinness through the crowd in Anaheim, slapped him on the back and told him happy birthday. (No, I wasn't drunk.)

In Seattle in 2005, I spotted Peter Buck and Starbucks' CEO in the VIP area.

Ta-da.

In 2010 I nearly got in several punch-ons with randoms who were disrespecting Jay-Z.

Did I ever tell you all about the two times I ran into Stellan Skarsgard in LA?

Are the odds of hooking up at a U2 concert better or worse than meeting someone famous at a U2 concert?

I almost leaped over two rails to go punch that prick Jon Bon Jovi in his bored looking face.

That was the show where Tom Cruise, Cameron Crowe, Cameron Diaz, Pat O'Brien, Hanson, Billy Zane and a handful of other celebrities were all standing in some sort of celebrity holding pen maybe 50 feet from our seats. Oh, you know who else was in there? Fucking Shifty Shellshock. Christ.

Was this in LA, cause they had the celebrity pen's there, and that was the first I'd seen something like that.

But, hey, I got to see Gavin Rossdale without needing to hear him sing as a result, so it's good. Beck too, but I wouldn't mind hearing him sing.

Yup. They're MAJOR fans. Of all the people in that pit, they were the most into it. I shit you not. I could not make my eyes off of them sometimes cos they were losing their shit all show long.

See, now this is an entirely different question than what's in the title. WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM US, OREGOROPA?????


I'd like to meet Gandhi, Mozart and Joan of Arc.


Oh sorry, those are my dinner party guests.

I'd love to randomly bump into Bono in GA. That would be pretty sweet.

Low fucking standards for celebrities that night.

I would have thrown my drink at Gavin Rossdale at LA3, but it was already in the garbage by the time I noticed he was in the celebrity pen.
