I had to post this story because I can truly see myself having done this exact thing.
A British guy thought he got cheap tickets to see the RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS . . . but just days before the show, he realized they were tickets to see a BAGPIPE band called the RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS.
If you can get RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS tickets for $41 each, you jump on that deal. Just make sure you check and re-check the spelling.
A British guy named Duncan Robb found tickets for a show in Ireland at that price, so he bought a pair as a Christmas gift for his girlfriend. The concert was this past Sunday. But right before they left, they realized that Duncan had made a mistake.
They didn't have tickets for the actual Chili Peppers . . . they had tickets for the RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS, the self-proclaimed "most famous BAGPIPE band on the planet." Oh, and they call their style BAGROCK. (!!!)

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
The best part of the story is that they WENT TO THE SHOW ANYWAY. He was man enough to Tweet about his mistake . . . but so far he hasn't given us a review of the show.
I knew about the Chili PIPERS because some time ago I thought I was tagging The Chili Peppers on Twitter but tagged the Pipers instead! Doh!
