A Dave Matthews fan got an unexpected surprise as she was driving to her idol's concert on Saturday. She found him stranded on the street after his bike broke down.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend, Joe, were running late to a Dave Matthews Band concert when they saw a stranded cyclist and decided to stop and help him, much to their surprise, the stranded cyclist was Dave Matthews.

The singer was reportedly out for a pre-concert bike ride when he got a flat tire, and he didn't have a phone to call for help.

Kraus, who luckily had a bike rack on her car, drove both the singer and his bicycle to the concert where Matthews thanked her with front-row tickets, backstage passes, a dinner invitation and a mention during the show.
