Matthews fans meet him in need of ride to his show

Posted:
HERSHEY, Pa. (AP) -

Dave Matthews may jet to performances around the world, but that doesn't mean his bicycle never breaks down.

That's what happened before the singer's show Saturday in Hershey when one of his fans pulled over to give the stranded cyclist a ride and realized the hitchhiker was none other than Matthews. He didn't have a cellphone on him.

Emily Kraus tells WHP-TV in Harrisburg that she and her boyfriend helped Matthews stow his bicycle on their bike rack and he got in their car for the rest of the ride.

Kraus says he invited them to dinner, signed their tickets, took them back stage and got them front-row seats.

Kraus says Matthews was a humble guy and that she woke up the next morning still amazed at what had happened.
