Dave Matthews Stranded While Cycling, Fan Gives Him Ride To Hershey Show

Imagine how shocked Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were when they pulled over to help a stranded cyclist, and realized it was Dave Matthews trying to get to his concert in Hershey, PA. Matthews didn’t have a cell phone on him and was having trouble with his bike.

According to WHP-TV, the couple loaded up Matthews’ bike onto their car’s bike rack…and gave him a ride to the show.

‘‘We didn’t know how to make conversation with him, in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from,’’ Kraus said. ‘‘He had just been in Cincinnati and he said, ‘I’m taking a short break after this one because I have to drop my daughters off at camp.’ … He was just a very humble guy.’’

The lead singer invited them to dinner, took them back stage and got them front row seats to the show. He even signed their tickets. When she woke up the next morning, the Dave Matthews fan thought the whole experience was just a dream.

‘‘I rolled over and I said, ‘OK, yeah that really happened yesterday,’’’ she said with a laugh, recalling that Matthews autographed their concert tickets and thanked them for the ride. ‘‘It was surreal. We couldn’t believe it.’’
