File this one under "so crazy it just might work." Remembering that basically anyone can edit a Wikipedia page but that, for some reason, people still trust it as a source for information, a bloke in Manchester elevated his status to that of a celebrity by making it look like he was a family member to someone in the band. Rather than being mad at him, the band, The Sherlocks, seem impressed with his resourcefulness!
Regular concert goers know the importance of arriving early at a venue when there isn't any assigned seating. After all, no one wants to get stuck in the very back of a GA show, craning to see the stage over everyone's bobbing heads and cell phone lights. This is infinitely more important if the band playing happens to be popular in your area because you know the place is bound to be packed.
Adam Boyd went to see The Sherlocks perform in Manchester, UK with a few friends, but got to the venue late and as a result had a pretty crappy view. Where Adam Boyd failed, Drunk Adam Boyd came to the rescue with a creative solution that made him the envy of every rule-following concert goer in the world.
The band consists of two pairs of brothers, but they got another family member courtesy of Boyd's fast-moving Wikipedia edit.
This isn't the first time a fan has used a Wikipedia edit to get a better view of the band, and it most likely won't be the last. He shared evidence of his shenanigans on Facebook, who in turn shared it with the rest of the world. No word on whether the bouncer charged with guarding the VIP room faced any repercussions, but after hearing about the story, it seems like the headliners for the night didn't mind.
