Emily Kraus and her boyfriend were on their way to Hershey, Pennsylvania, to see Dave Matthews perform, and were running late as it was.
The singer had gone for a bike ride and suffered a flat tire, stranding him in the middle of nowhere.
"I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'Shit'," Matthews would later tell the audience at Hersheypark Stadium.
As incredible as it might seem to give your idol a lift to his own concert, Kraus and her partner were far too starstruck to make any meaningful conversation with Matthews along the way.
Matthews, however, was just as grateful to the couple for their act of kindness: He offered them dinner backstage and then front-row seats to the concert.
