Remember kids, close proof-reading is a virtue.

Twitter user Duncan Robb thought he’d found a bargain when he got Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets for £30 ($41), but as it turns out there was good reason for that.

That’s right, Robb and his girlfriend had bought tickets to a bagpipes cover band. He had got the tickets for his partner as a Christmas present.

“Fast forward a month and we get the actual tickets through the post – brilliant! Up they went on the board – still nobody had noticed my mistake,” he told Storyful. “It was only until the Wednesday before when my gf wanted to know who was supporting them. She couldn’t find anything about the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in Belfast.”

The pair still went to the concert, and even picked up some sweet, bagpipin’ merch.

As disappointing as it must have been to discover they had tickets to the wrong band, the Red Hot Chilli Pipers are pretty wicked. Silver linings all round!
