Did Nancy Pelosi break bread with Matt Damon at U2 show? More celebity sightings at the Baltimore show

In what is likely my last post on U2 in a while, I bring you the celebrity sightings at the show, for those of you who care about this stuff. A source at Live Nation spotted Matt Damon and John Krasinski, "The Office's" Jim, at the VIP Riser hanging out with show opener Florence Welch.

And while the Guv could not make it to the show, he did send an envoy. His wife Katie made an appearance.

From late last night: "Our Head of Digital Trif Alatzas spotted House Minority Leader and Baltimore native Nancy Pelosi in the audience. Apparently the California Democrat decided to watch U2 rather than President Obama's speech on Afghanistan."

Saw both Nancy and Matt walk out of the tunnel together right before the band came out. Snapped a nice photo of Matt.

Is Nancy Pelosi "f*cking Matt Damon" too?

I saw and said hi to Adam Jones down on the field before the show. Guess he got out of Pittsburgh in a hurry

Nancy Pelosi was just one of many poseurs at the show.

guess got out of the budget meetings early eh?
