General consensus is that celebrities have everything they could ever want or need … except, it turns out, a ride.

Alongside guests Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, stars of the new movie Ride Along, Conan O'Brien set out to share a drive with an unsuspecting stranger thanks to the mobile app Lyft, which allows users to signal for a driver to pick them up.

Emily Kraus was on her way to a Dave Matthews concert in Hershey, Pa., on Saturday, when she saw someone stranded on the side of the road with a popped bicycle tire.

Imagine her surprise when the rider was revealed to be none other than Dave Matthews himself! She decided to offer him a ride.

"I did not have a cell phone on the bicycle. So I thought, 'S––,' " Matthews, 46, 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."

Roberts started the night off by introducing her good pal and his band to the raucous New York fans: "I cannot tell you how excited I am to be in the greatest city in the world to introduce one of the greatest bands of the world!"

Julia Roberts and her pal Dave Matthews are teaming up again.

Roberts – who joked to PEOPLE in 2005 that she is the Dave Matthews Band's "mascot" – will introduce the group when it performs at the Stand Up for a Cure 2008 Concert Series at New York City's Madison Square Garden on Sept. 10.

"The charity is honored that she will be introducing the band at the concert," says a rep for the event. "Her support will make a huge difference."

The concert will raise money and awareness for lung cancer research.

The last time Roberts worked with Matthews was in 2005, when she appeared in his "Dreamgirl" video. It was her first acting gig after she gave birth to twins Hazel and Phinnaeus, who are now 3 ½. She and her husband Danny Moder had a third child, Henry Daniel, in June 2007.
