Chances are, you heard about the poor woman over the holidays who asked for Lorde tickets and whose clueless parents ended up getting her tickets to 'A Night With Our Lord and Savior' with Joel Osteen. The disappointment she felt is now probably very relatable to Duncan Robb of Chesterfield in the United Kingdom.
He recently purchased tickets for him and his girlfriend to see what he thought was a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Belfast. The best thing? They were just £30, or about $41. What a bargain!
But look a little closer at those tickets...
The Red Hot Chilli... Pipers? According to their website, they're a bagpipes cover band, which none of us knew was a thing until this very moment.
Robb explained to Storyful:
"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. 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."
And in case you're wondering, yes, they still went.
And now everyone on Twitter wants to see The Red Hot Chili Pipers.

Had flights and hotel already booked, didn’t make any sense to be over there and not at least check them out!— Duncan Robb (@Dunc_Cfc) February 13, 2018
Yeah it was this Saturday just gone .. it was an experience to say the least!— Duncan Robb (@Dunc_Cfc) February 13, 2018
Others just wanted to make jokes.
Someone else made the mistake.
Fella I did the exact same thing and ended up posting the tickets to a mate who lives over in Belfast 😂— TD (@TomDaveChubs) February 13, 2018
Well, you got a trip to Ireland and a story for the ages. I'd say that's a pretty good present mate.— Dave's Not Here (@Weirddave0) February 13, 2018
