While running late to a Dave Matthews show in Hershey, Pennsylvania Emily Kraus and her boyfriend spotted a lone hitchhiker who turned out to be Dave Matthews.
Matthews, who was riding his bike to the show without carrying a cell phone fell victim to a flat tire leaving him stranded on the side of the road. Luckily they recognized him and had a newly installed bike rack ready to go.
“I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, ‘Shit’,” Matthews would later tell the audience at Hersheypark Stadium in the video below.
A thankful Matthews offered the couple dinner backstage as well as front-row seats to the concert. A dream come true for Kraus who had been a fan since age 9. He even signed the tickets “Thanks for the ride.”
