This Guy Mistakenly Bought His Girlfriend Tickets to See Her Favorite Band: The Red Hot Chili...Pipers?

This band may play Queen better than Queen!

February 13, 2018

Bagpipes are so hot right now. Red hot, in fact. And nobody knows that better than Duncan Robb and his girlfriend.

On Christmas Day, Robb gifted her tickets to see her favorite band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, in Belfast. For months, the couple had their tickets on display in anticipation of the concert.

“What a bargain,” thought Robb, who initially nabbed the tickets for just over $40 each, as ABC13 reports.

After realizing she didn’t know who the opening acts were, Robb’s girlfriend inspected the tickets to find that they actually had tickets to see none other than the Red Hot Chili Pipers, proving typos can be hard to catch and the Chili Peppers have some serious Celtic competition.

The below Twitter post (containing NSFW language) shows the couple’s reaction to the hilarious mix-up:

The group’s website boasts they’re “the most famous bagpipe band on the planet.” We don’t doubt it. Especially not after seeing this cover of Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls.”

According to news reports, the couple still attended the show and “had a good time,” with hopes to still see the Chili Peppers at some point in the future.
