Couple gives stranded Dave Matthews a ride to Hershey concert


HERSHEY, Pa. - A Pennsylvania couple was on their way to a Dave Matthews concert in Hershey when they noticed the rock star stranded on the side of the road.

Matthews was on a pre-concert bike ride when his bicycle got a flat tire, and he didn’t have a cellphone on him to call for help.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend noticed the singer, and they offered him a ride.

“We didn’t know how to make conversation with him, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from,” Kraus said. “I woke up this morning and said, ‘OK, yeah, that really happened.’ It was surreal.”

Matthews invited the couple to dinner and back stage before they enjoyed the show from the front row. He also signed their tickets with the inscription, “Thanks for the ride.”
