A British man shared the story of how he and his girlfriend flew to Belfast for a show they thought was the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but they should have read more closely.
Duncan Robb of Chesterfield, England, said he had been searching for tickets to a boxing match when he spotted tickets he thought were for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but he later realized were for the Red Hot Chili Pipers, a bagpipe cover band.
Robb said he gave the tickets to his girlfriend for Christmas, but it was weeks before they noticed anything amiss.
The couple was in Belfast when they noticed the word “Pipers” on the tickets.
Robb tweeted a screenshot of the text conversation where his girlfriend pointed out his error and sent him a photo of the Pipers’ website, which calls them “the most famous bagpipe band on the planet.”
Still can’t believe we’ve flown over to Belfast not for the @ChiliPeppers but to see the ‘worlds best bagpipe band’ @chillipipers … thought I’d got a rate good deal on tickets n’all. Had a nightmare pic.twitter.com/YO72amVR4I
