Man accidentally buys tickets to Red Hot Chili Pipers, a bagpipe band

A well-meaning man who wanted to surprise his girlfriend with tickets to see her favorite band accidentally ended up with tickets to see the Red Hot Chili Pipers, a bagpipe band.

When Duncan Robb purchased the tickets to what he thought was for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, he thought he could make a romantic weekend out of it, as the show was scheduled for February 10.

"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," Robb said. "Also, I saw the date was February 10, so I could make it into a Valentine's Day weekend -- kill two birds with one stone."

Robb told his girlfriend about the tickets on Christmas day, but neither party noticed the mistake until months later.

"We just had to laugh about it -- what else was there to do!"

Despite the mistake, the couple ended up attending the concert and having a great time.
