You’re heading to see the Dave Matthews Band in concert, but you’re running late. On the side of the road is a guy pushing a bike who looks oddly like Dave Matthews himself, so you stop out of curiosity. Turns out, it is Dave Matthews whom you’ve discovered stranded with no cell phone and a busted bike tire!
That is the true story of what happened to one fan in Pennsylvania. Yahoo! News reports that Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were running late to see the Dave Matthews Band in concert. While driving down the road, they spotted front man Dave Matthews pushing his bicycle up the road. They offered him a ride to the gig and put his bike on their car’s bike rack.
As a thank you, Matthews bought their dinner, invited them backstage, and gave them front row tickets. He also signed the tickets, “Thanks for the ride.”
