Met...
Adam Clayton (U2). I've got an autograph and a hug from him on two separate occasions. This is my biggest claim to fame! :lol:
The Edge (U2). I managed to say one (1) entire sentence to him. :D
Bono (yeah, U2)... Kind of. I've stood at an arms length, does that count? :D
BP Fallon (an Irish media personality, DJ etc.)
Anton Corbijn (a Dutch photographer)
With these last two I was in a group of people and I didn't actually talk to either one. I do have a pic of Mr Corbijn where my silly face can be seen too. :p

Seen:
The last of the U2-ers, Larry Mullen. From a little distance at a hotel.
Naomi Campbell (on stage with U2)
Daniel Lanois (in concert & briefly offstage)
David Bowie (in concert)
U2 (in concert, multiple times)
Hothouse Flowers, Something Happens and a bunch of other bands at a festival.
Various bands who were opening for U2 but I've forgotten their names... :p (on stage)

Then there are the odd Finnish celebrities and politicians that I've come across, who I won't mention as no one's heard of them outside this country!

I had the pleasure of meeting John Travolta and have to say this man is not only the most inspiring celebrity I've ever met but probably the most inspiring person I ever got the chance to talk to. He's such a sweet and beautiful guy. And very humble.
Reminds me of Michael.

Aww, I love Travolta. He's a good guy. My favorite movie of all times is Grease. Olivia has always been my idol too. Wish I could meet her.

Well, since we are listing concerts we've been to also...

Olivia Newton-John - Physical tour, 1982 (my first concert ever).

Chicago (the band) - Many, many, many times since 2000 (I'm a big fan and have met all of the current band members and some of the past ones).

Linda Ronstadt - Beacon Theatre a few years ago.

Barry manilow - In Las Vegas

Toto

Gin Blossoms

Paul McCartney - Twice at Madison Square Garden

Earth, Wind & Fire - Sharing a double bill with Chicago, several times.

Danny Ganz - Las Vegas (RIP).

Diana Ross - Free Concert in Central Park, 1982. Well, I almost saw her. I heard her, lol. We actually camped out overnight in the park. Just before the show was to begin, I left the Great Lawn to use a porta potty (when you gotta go...) and couldn't get back in because of the crowds. And then it started to thunderstorm so I went home. My sister remained and saw Diana perform until she stopped the show because of the dangerous lightning. We returned to the park the next day (or 2 days later, I forget) and listened to the concert from a tree far from the stage. My wild and crazy youth.

I smiled and laughed at this. What a nice guy!
My mum would be sooo jealous. She did a big project on him as a part of a leadership course for her diploma.

I haven't met anyone famous, that I remember. I did meet an Australian author names Isobell Carmody at a writers festival and I saw Michael Klim, the former olympic swimmer, at my local footy ground was I was about 8 but I was too shy to say anything.
