Valentine’s Day Fail: Couple’s Romantic Concert Trip Goes Hilariously Wrong

A British man flew his girlfriend to Northern Ireland for a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert on Valentine’s Day week — only to learn he’d actually bought tickets to the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a bagpipe band that’s more fit for a funeral.

One man flew his girlfriend to Northern Ireland for a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert on Valentine’s Day week — only to learn he’d actually bought tickets to the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a bagpipe band that’s more fit for a funeral.

Duncan Robb, of Chesterfield, England, was super surprised to find $53 tickets to the show in Belfast! The deal was so amazing, he snatched them up back in December, according to ABC.

“I thought, ‘What a bargain, there must not be many tickets left’ — and I snatched them up straight away,” he said, adding the Give It Away group is his girlfriend’s favourite band.

“I saw the date was February 10, so I could make it into a Valentine’s Day weekend.”

He hung up the tickets to a bulletin board in his house and never realized it was the Pipers, not the Peppers, until the couple flew to Northern Ireland last week, he said.

“It was only until the Wednesday before when my girlfriend wanted to know who was [opening for] them. She couldn’t find anything about the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in Belfast,” he said.

When he learned his romantic surprise had gone extremely wrong, he took to Twitter to share.

“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,”.

But Robb later said he and his girlfriend had an absolute blast in Belfast despite his mistake.
