Two fans on their way to a Dave Matthews Band concert got the surprise of a lifetime when they pulled over to assist a stranded bicyclist.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were heading to the concert in Hershey, Pa. when they stopped and discovered the stranded traveler was Dave Matthews himself.

Apparently Matthews had been out on a pre-show ride when his back tire blew out.

“I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, ‘Sh*t,” he recalled that night at the concert. “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.”

Matthews thanked the couple by buying them dinner, bringing them backstage and giving them front row seats to his concert.
