Written by on February 14, 2018

AN UNWITTING fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers got a Scottish surprise when he turned up at the SSE Arena in Belfast.

Duncan Robb thought he had got a bargain to see the rock but had instead purchased tickets to see the Red Hot Chili PIPERS.

One rock fan got an awkward surprise when he thought he was buying Red Hot Chili Peppers tickets

Mr Robb, from Derbyshire, got the £30 tickets for the SSE Arena as a Christmas present along with flights to Northern Ireland and accommodation in what he hoped would be a weekend to remember but his error turned it into something of a “nightmare”.


Twitter Reaction…


He wrote on Twitter: “Still can’t believe we’ve flown over to Belfast not for the Chili Peppers but to see the ‘worlds best bagpipe band’ Chilli Pipers… thought I’d got a rate good deal on tickets n’all.

“Had a nightmare.”

Mr Robb said: “When I clicked on and got tickets in row Q and for £30 each I thought ‘what a bargain’, there must not be many tickets left and snatched them up straight away. ”

He said the pair went ahead with their trip despite the mistake, saying it was “definitely an experience”.

But he actually paid to see bagpipe band the Red Hot Chilli Pipers

RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS

Sadly Duncan and his girlfriend didn’t get to see Flea and the rest of the Chili Peppers – but hope they’ll have another opportunity
