Imagine being on your way to see your favorite band in concert and you run into the lead singer on the side of the road on your way there!

That's exactly what happened to Emily Kraus and her boyfriend when they were driving to the Dave Matthews Band show in Hershey, Pa on Saturday.

They were on their way to the show when they spotted a very familiar face pulled over on the side of a road with a flat bicycle tire. Freaking out, we're sure, they stopped to help the man and of course, it WAS Dave Matthews! He was reportedly on a pre-show bike ride. The singer had no cell phone and of course, a flat tire.

So what did the fans do to help him?

They gave the rocker a ride to his show! That IS where they were heading to anyway!

"We didn't know how to make conversation with him, so we were talking about his tour and where he had come from," Emily said.

"I woke up this morning and said, 'OK, yeah, that really happened.' It was surreal."

Dave made sure to pay them back for their help. He invited the couple to dinner and back stage before they enjoyed the show from the front row. He also signed their tickets with the inscription, "Thanks for the ride."

Can you say coolest moment ever?
