We're always told "remember to read the fine print" as a key to life but no one ever reminds you to re-read the very large print. A Twitter user learned this lesson the hard way when he didn't double check the Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets he thought he was getting a great deal on.
Duncan Robb found a steal for Chili Peppers tickets meant as a Christmas present for his partner and only paid £30 ($41) online. Turns out there was a very good reason that the tickets were so cheap. He realized his mistake after flying to Belfast and ended up seeing the 'worlds best bagpipe band,' the Red Hot Chilli Pipers.
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— Duncan Robb (@Dunc_Cfc) February 10, 2018
Clearly, Duncan should have proofread the tickets because they clearly say "Red Hot Chilli Pipers," who describe themselves as "the most famous bagpipe band on the planet."
Duncan told 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."
The couple still went to the show and if you're going to see one bagpipe band, it may as well be the Chilli Pipers, who have amassed over 4 million views on YouTube for their cover of Avicii's "Wake Me Up."
