The Grammy-winning musician had gone out for a pre-show ride Saturday when the back tire of his bike popped.
"I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'Sh*t," he recalled that night at his show at Hersheypark Stadium.
"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."Matthews, grateful for the gesture, invited the couple for dinner. Then, backstage. And then, to front row seats to the show.
Oh, and during the concert, Matthews recounted the incident, referring to Emily by name.
"My cheeks still hurt from smiling, giggling and laughing all night long ... this will always be remembered,"
Ah, the joy of life without a cell phone...
