HELPING HAND - MATHEWS BAND

Idea

What would you do if you were driving to a concert and saw a hitch hiker stranded on the side of the road?

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were traveling to a concert in on Saturday, on their way to a Dave Mathews concert. They spotted someone who was stranded and turned out to be Matthews, who was on a bicycle ride when his bike broke down.

Needless to say, the 7-minute ride to the show was a bit surreal for these fans, who had Dave Matthews in the back seat.

The 46-year-old Grammy-winning singer-songwriter invited the pair to dinner and gave them backstage passes and memories that will last a lifetime—or at least until they pick up another stranded rock star. Dave Matthews also signed their tickets with a note: "Thanks for the ride."
