Musician Dave Matthews hitched a ride with a fan to his show in Pennsylvania on Saturday after a tire on his bike was punctured. The Dave Matthews Band frontman went out for a pre-show cycle before the gig at Hersheypark Stadium, but he was left stranded by the side of the road after the bike’s back wheel deflated.
Concert-goer Emily Kraus and her boyfriend spotted the star and gave him a ride to the show. Matthews was so thankful he invited them to dinner and offered them front row seats. Recounting the story to fans at the concert, Matthews revealed, “I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, ‘s—‘ … and then a nice lady named Emily rode up in a red car with a bicycle rack on it and gave me a ride on to the gig.”
In a post on CBS 21 News’ Facebook page, Kraus adds, “My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long … this will always be remembered.”
