Talk about front-row seats.

Two Dave Matthews fans gave the musician a ride to his own concert after his bicycle broke down on the side of the road and he found himself stranded without a cell phone, CBS News reports.

Emily Kraus and her boyfriend, who were on their way to Matthews' concert in Hershey, Pa., spotted him and drove him to the show, even transporting his bike.

"He said, 'I've never seen a bike rack like this before,'" Kraus explained to CBS. Her boyfriend helped him with his bike and she held his helmet.

He then got into the car, and they got him to the stage on time.

"We didn't know how to make conversation with him," Kraus added. "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's just a very comfortable guy."

Matthews was so grateful, he invited the couple to dinner. They also went backstage and watched the concert from the front row.

"I rolled over this morning, and I said, 'Yeah, that really happened yesterday,' " Kraus recounted.
