Russell Crowe and his band rocked before an all-star audience last weekend at Stubb’s Barbeque in Austin, Texas, reports PEOPLE. Among those in the VIP section: Jodie Foster, Sandra Bullock and Ron Howard (though no Meg Ryan, amid tabloid reports that she has stopped keeping company with Crowe and returned to husband Dennis Quaid — to which her publicist has no comment). Bullock was accompanied by Bob Schneider of Austin band The Scabs. With the exception of Howard, Foster and a few others, the VIP balcony was particularly noisy during most of the show, which attracted 2,500 people in all. The racket prompted the “Gladiator” star to shout up to the balcony several times during the concert, “Shut up and p— off, you Hollywood bastards!” But they paid him no heed.
