After rap giants become stranded...

A fan stepped in to give Public Enemy a lift to their Sheffield show after the rap giants became stranded.

The seminal hip-hop crew had stopped past the city's Record Collector music shop to sign copies of their new album, mingling with fans in the run up to the show.

A taxi had been booked for Public Enemy, with the rap group believing that winding Northern streets were too much of an obstacle for their tour bus.

Sadly, the taxi sped off, leading the group temporarily stranded - until fan Kevin Wells stepped in. Offering the group a lift, he drove them to the Motorpoint Arena just 15 minutes before Public Enemy were due onstage.

"They were such nice guys, we had a right laugh," he told The Star. "We were chatting away, but the phone was constantly going as their management were clearly worried."

"Then as we were coming through Attercliffe, Bohemian Rhapsody, by Queen, came on the radio," he added. "Everyone was singing the words and rocking out in the back of my car, it was like a Wayne’s World moment. I was looking in the rear view mirror thinking, 'is this actually happening?'"
