DAVE MATTHEWS FAN DRIVES DAVE TO HIS OWN SHOW
AT HERSHEY PARK STADIUM IN PENNSYLVANIA
Emily Kraus has a concert story she will never soon forget. On her way to see the Dave Matthews Band
at Hershey Park Stadium on Saturday, Kraus pulled over to aid a stranded biker and it turned out to be none other than Dave Matthews himself. It seems Dave had gone for a pre-show bike ride, without his cell phone, and popped a tire on his bike. Kraus, a long-time fan, put Dave’s bike on her bike-rack and drove the rock star to the show. For her good deed she was rewarded with a backstage dinner with the band and an upgrade to front-row seats at the show.
The show itself featured two 2013 debuts for DMB as the band performed “Alligator Pie” and the Under The Table and Dreaming classic “Lover Lay Down” for the first time all year. DMB tour continues Wednesday at Live Nation Amphitheater at the Florida State Fairgrounds, Tampa, FL, and something tells us Dave’s tour manager might keep a closer eye on his pre-show whereabouts.
