Reneé Rapp and Ed Sheeran were among the fans at Thursday night’s Celtics playoff game at the TD Garden.

The British singer-songwriter and “I Hate Boston” singer sat side-by-side and had a great view of the court during Game 2 of the NBA Eastern Conference Finals, when the Celtics beat the Indiana Pacers by a score of 126 to 110.

The NBA posted a video clip on Instagram of the pair sitting courtside for the game.

Sheeran and Rapp are both in town for the Boston Calling music festival. Rapp is scheduled to perform at 5:55 p.m. Friday, and Sheeran is slated to go on at 8:40 p.m. on the Green Stage at the Harvard Athletic Complex in Allston.


The Celtics also shared photos of the stars on the team’s Instagram account, including pics of Sheeran trying on a Boston Celtics sweatshirt and checking out other Celtics gear.
