SHARE Bono hangs with Spike Lee, sports ‘Chi-raq’ hat

Bono and U2 are in town to rock the house. Spike Lee is here to rock the boat.

Perhaps it was inevitable that the two meet. Lee posted to his Instagram account on Tuesday morning about the moment:

Lee took time off from picnicking with Michael Pfleger and fending off critics of his next movie, “Chiraq,” to check out the Irish band’s show at United Center on Monday night.

Last Night The Lee’s Checked Out U2’s Great Show At The United Center Here In Chicago. Afterwards BONO Rocked His CHI-RAQ Baseball Hat. U2 Is Coming To The Worlds Most Famous Arena-Madison Square Garden For 8 SOLD OUT Joints. Awwwwwwwwww Sheeeeeeetttttt. Y’Know I’m Goin’ Back. YA-DIG? SHO-NUFF.

The Chi-raq stuff we’ll get over. But talking all that New York mess? Fighting words.

U2, meanwhile, finishes up a five-show set in Chicago on July 2.

They’ve been using the gigs to perform some older material, including “Gloria,” which has been mothballed for about 10 years.
