Far East Movement

The Tour Trip From HELL

The Far East Movement probably wished they had a G6 yesterday -- when their tour bus broke down in the middle of the New Mexico desert ... and they had to HITCHHIKE their way back to civilization.

A rep for the band tells us the guys were traveling from Missouri to Phoenix when their bus died ... stranding them 50 miles away from the nearest taxi service ... which refused to send a car that far.

We're told the band decided their only option was to try and hitchhike to Albuquerque and catch a flight to Phoenix -- and fortunately for them ... an angel in a Chevy Silverado came to the rescue.

After loading up their stuff in the bed and piling in the extended cab -- the band hooked up their savior with $200 in cash, tickets to Lil Wayne's "I Am Still Music" tour and even took a picture with the woman -- so she could prove the whole event to her kids.

F.E.M. got to the airport just in time for the flight -- but as soon as they sat in their seats, a MASSIVE hail storm broke out -- grounding the plane for hours.

But the story has a happy ending ... because the band EVENTUALLY got to Phoenix -- and they're back on schedule ... ready to perform in Irvine, CA tomorrow ... if they actually manage to get there.

These guys look like the least annoying band of all boy bands. They should get an award for that alone.
