SOI @ MSG we were sitting a few rows back from Bill an Hilary. The entire venue cheered them and they stood up and waved. After they sat down my friend poked me in the ribs and whispered, "Isn't that Bruce sitting next to Bill?" It was and no one noticed!

In Vegas at 360 I saw Paris Hilton. Same tour I saw Brad Pitt (in GA) and Ali a couple of times. She wore the best shoes. . .

I saw Joe Manganiello, Salman Rushdie and Conan O'Brien at MSG in 2005.

Joe was taller than everyone else in the circle, Salman was in the VIP section near the sound booth - and, somehow, I had a better seat than Conan, who was a few rows behind me at the side of the circle.

I don't want to be the one to steal the story, but Denise Richards and Chris Kattan were at an Elevation show cutting in front of everyone in GA. People were letting them through because they were famous, but GT wouldn't let them past her since she had been waiting in line for hours. They were very rude to her to say the least.

Gwyneth Paltrow was at Los Angeles Night One just a couple days ago. She was crying and singing and every word. Kind of intense. The little VIP area in front of the sound booth had a few other celebs

Noel Gallagher IE Tour London night 4. He left during Beautiful Day and the VIP exit was right next to our block. He saw us pumping our arms in the air in time with the beat and he did the same to us.

I stood in front of Robin Williams and Sean Penn at an Oakland Vertigo show, and then Paul McGuinness stood in front of me and started jumping up and down because Bono and Adam were having some sort of a tender moment on stage.

At the i+e show in San Jose, I saw Bruce Bochy (Mgr. of the SF Giants) and two players – Ryan Vogelson and Hunter Pence. All of them were there for the entire show, and Pence was in the GA. We got to talk to Bochy briefly after the gig.

I think @U2 staffer, Aaron G. has the best story though…

Backstage at one of the London i+e gigs, Aaron was putting his jacket on and accidentally smacked Noel Gallagher in the face.
Noel wasn’t too happy.

I'm terrible at recognizing famous people or anyone for that matter. I would make a horrible witness. I just don't pay attention to what people look like. Funny, the only people I would recognize would be the four guys, oh, and probably Oprah. I'm not really into who's who and "famous" people. I think they are over-rated, over-paid, and too many are egomaniacs!

Lmao at Paul McG acting like a fan girl or something! (Or maybe he thinks it's bad for business?) Now I want to look up youtube clips of Oakland Vertigo.

Ok, these celebs have posted the U2 JT30 stage on their instagram. Surprisingly they were not up close to the stage at all.

- Garrett Clayton at Rose Bowl. Very hot 20-something actor (Hairspray, other such musicals)
- Darren Hayes (probably at Rose Bowl too?). Singer in Savage Garden.

I attend shows in the Midwest, so no celebs. Chicago attendees might see some celebs, idk.

GT should have yelled at him, "You can't-a have-a de Bono!"
