Rock Star Catches Ride To His Own Show After Being Stranded [VIDEO]
You're on the way to a concert and there, on the side of the road, is the person you're going to see. It's not a movie. It actually happened in Hershey Pennsylvania to Emily Kraus and her boyfriend who were off to see Dave Matthews. Figures! Why can't I find Keith Urban stranded on the side of the road? Although, I wouldn't be driving him to his show if I got him in my car :)
Matthews was riding his bicycle when his back tire blew. Emily pulled over, strapped his bike on her car and drove him to the show. She tells WHP-TV, '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. 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.'
Matthews invited the couple to dinner and gave them backstage passes as a way to say thank you. On their tickets, Matthews wrote 'Thanks for the ride!'
Matthews told the crowd at Hersheypark Stadium, 'My bike broke down. I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. 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.'
It's nice to hear some celebrities can be normal! I bet that wouldn't have happened if Emily picked up Brittney Spears or Lindsay Lohan. Then again, she may have left either standing on the side of the road.
You know Elvis is the King of Rock & Roll, Dr Ruth is a sex therapist, Michael Jordan is a basketball player and Dr Suess is a children's author, but I bet there's a few things you didn't know about these celebrities. Cracked.com posted 33 facts about famous people you won't believe are true.
