TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) - Toledo man Dan McGurk got an incredible surprise at his 30th birthday party on October 27: Kid Rock showed up to celebrate with him.

Dan, who has Down Syndrome, is a huge Kid Rock fan. In August, he posted a video to YouTube showing his Kid Rock shirts, posters and other memorabilia, and inviting the Detroit rocker to his birthday party.

Dan's friends and family then took to social media to get the word out and convince Kid Rock to show up – and it worked.

On Monday night Kid Rock showed up at Dan's 30th birthday. Dan says it was a dream come true. 

 "I've been waiting for this ...Kid Rock finally came to my birthday," said Dan. "He came in singing happy birthday and my face light up and I as so excited to meet kid rock."

And Dan says he didn't come empty handed. 

"He got me lots of stuff, a hat, he got me lots of stuff...a picture frame and he signed my book," said Dan. "He told me if I be good to my family and all my friends at work I get free tickets to every Kid Rock concert."
