I'm With The Band: Dave Matthews Hitches Ride To Gig With Fan

Emuly Kraus was casually going about her business, driving to the Dave Matthews Band show in Hershey, Pennsylvania when something caught her eye. Is that? Was that?

Yes, it was. Dave Matthews himself stranded by the side of the road with his bicycle. The good guy of rock was planning on cycling to the show at Hersheypark stadium when the back tire of his bike popped. "I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'Sh*t," he recalled to CNN that night at his show, "And then a nice lady named Emily rode up in a red car with a bicycle rack on it and gave me a ride on to the gig."

Speaking to CNN affiliate WHP, Kraus said she and her boyfriend were running late for the show and spotted man who seemed extremely familiar at the side of the road.

They picked him up and chatted about the tour, Dave's daughter's summer camp schedules and, well, stuff. "We didn't know how to make conversation with him," said Emily, "My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long ... this will always be remembered."

Matthews was sure to sign the couple's concert tickets, writing "Thanks for the ride."

The Dave Matthews Band continues its tour this week in Tampa and West Palm Beach before heading to Charlotte and Virginia Beach.
