On Saturday, a DAVE MATTHEWS fan named Emily Kraus was driving to a Dave Matthews concert in Hershey, Pennsylvania, with her boyfriend, when she noticed a hitchhiker on the side of the road with a busted up bike.
Emily’s boyfriend realized that it was actually Dave Matthews . . . so they stopped and picked him up. Dave was stranded after his bike got a flat tire, and didn’t have his cell phone with him at the time. So they offered him a ride . . . TO HIS OWN SHOW.
Emily told CNN, quote, “We didn’t know how to make conversation with him,” but added that they ended up talking about how the tour was going, and his daughter’s summer camp schedule.
Dave, obviously, was grateful for the ride . . . so he invited them to dinner, gave them backstage passes, and front row tickets to the show.
