Thinking that they’d gotten a really good price on tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers, an unsuspecting Duncan Robb and his partner Sarah, who live in Chesterfield, Derbyshire UK, excitedly flew over to Belfast, Northern Ireland only to find out that they had not purchased tickets for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, but rather The Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a really talented Scottish bagpipe band who performs all over the world. While the pair was disappointed in not seeing their favorite band, they seemed to be pleasantly surprised with the show.
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

This isn’t the first time this error has occurred and probably won’t be the last.
