Brilliant moment hardcore dance act gatecrash Scottish wedding of one of their biggest fans


A HILARIOUS video shows what happened when a Scottish wedding was gatecrashed by one of the world’s biggest hardstyle dance acts.

Gerard McKeown was devastated to learn that his wedding clashed with a gig by his favourite band Gunz For Hire.

His sister, Linsay McKeown, secretly arranged for Dutch duo to turn up at the evening do – and the result was amazing.

Video shows Gerard, arm-in-arm with Gunz For Hire, jumping to the thumping beat as wedding guests – young and old – put their arms in the air.

The wild scenes were filmed at the reception in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire, for Gerard, 30, and his bride, Nicola Johnston, 27.

Gunz For Hire were playing the O2 Academy in Glasgow last Saturday but agreed that if Gerard couldn’t come to them, they would go to him.

The pair turned up at the venue at 9pm and performed three songs to a stunned Gerard and a rapturous wedding party before heading 11 miles back to Glasgow for their 10.30pm set.

The top-selling act have played on some of the world’s biggest stages, from Australia, Chile, South Korea, and the US.

Gerard, known as Ged, said: “I was gobsmacked when they came in, I couldn’t believe it. I still can’t believe it happened.

“They were up with me on floor dancing, singing, entertaining the crowd. They are great guys for even doing something like that for me and Nicola. She doesn’t usually like that sort of music but I think she might be a fan now.”

He added: “By the end everyone was loving it. In the video you can see the old men down the front giving it large.”

Newlyweds Gerard and Nicola were excited at the Dutch DJ’s surprise appearance

The band posted a minute long clip to their Facebook page with the caption: “Ged almost cancelled their upcoming wedding ’cause of us coming to town. What to do when you hear this story? There was only one option and we did it! We crashed their wedding. Nothing will beat this wedding anymore!

“Nicola, we hope that Ged brought the rushing adrenaline to your ‘after-party’.”

The video now has over 418,000 views and 8,700 likes.

Gunz for Hire said: “When our show for Glasgow was announced there was that one message that stood out. Ged was gutted that he couldn’t come to the show because of his upcoming wedding.

“At that time we called our management to see what options we had to surprise this huge fan. The rest is history.

“Glasgow is special for us. The crowd is always so dedicated. They live for the music and every single time it gets better and better. We are already looking forward to our next show in Glasgow.”
