Credit: Steve KerosA British Red Hot Chili Peppers fan got a big surprise recently when he realized he'd actually bought tickets to see Red Hot Chilli Pipers, self-described as "The Most Famous Bagpipe Band on the Planet."

The fan, Duncan Robb, purchased tickets for himself and his girlfriend to the Chilli Pipers' gig in Belfast, Northern Ireland, thinking they were going to see Anthony Kieids and company. Even after realizing the mix-up, they decided to make the trip anyway.

"Still can't believe we've flown over to Belfast not for the @ChiliPeppers but to see the 'worlds best bagpipe band' @chillipipers," Robb tweeted. "Thought I'd got a rate good deal on tickets n'all. Had a nightmare."

The couple even ended up going to the show by the Chilli Pipers, whose sets generally are made up of covers of tunes by classic-rock acts like Journey, Queen, ZZ Top and Deep Purple. Still, Robb probably doesn't ever want to feel like he did that day.
