Dave Matthews picked up hitchhikingA pair of fans on their way to see the Dave Matthews Band in concert in Hershey, Pennsylvania Saturday night were late — but right on time.

Instead of rushing past a stranded cyclist whose tire had blown, they stopped to help. Guess who the rider turned out to be? Dave Matthews himself, taking a pre-concert ride in the country without a cell phone, needed a ride back to the show.

Emily Kraus’s car even had a bike rack that was given to her recently by her mom.

On the way to the gig, Matthews, who lives in Virginia, chatted with the couple about his summer tour and driving his daughter to camp.

In appreciation for their help, the superstar invited them to dinner, then, backstage and gave them front row tickets, autographed with these words, “Thanks for the ride!”

My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long,” said Emily, who has been a fan since she was nine years-old.
