Matthews fans meet him in need of ride to his show
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 in Hershey on Saturday when one of his fans pulled over to give a stranded cyclist a ride and realized the hitchhiker was none other than Matthews, who didn't have a cellphone on him.
Emily Kraus told WHP-TV in Harrisburg (http://bit.ly/15xd2Wx ) that 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.
"We didn't know how to make conversation with him, in fact, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from," Kraus said. "He had just been in Cincinnati and he said, 'I'm taking a short break after this one because I have to drop my daughters off at camp.' ... He was just a very humble guy."
He invited them to dinner, took them back stage and got them front-row seats. Kraus said she woke up the next morning still amazed at what had happened.
"I rolled over and I said, 'OK, yeah that really happened yesterday,'" she said with a laugh, recalling that Matthews autographed their concert tickets and thanked them for the ride. "It was surreal. We couldn't believe it."
