Boyfriend mistakenly buys tickets for bagpipe band instead of Red Hot Chili Peppers

Duncan Robb found out the difference a few letters can make when he picked up tickets for bagpipe band Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

CHESTERFIELD, England (WVEC) -- A man's plan to take his girlfriend to hear Red Hot Chili Peppers ended with the blare of bagpipes and men in kilts, instead.

Duncan Robb thought he found terrific ticket prices online for a Red Hot Chili Peppers concert in Belfast, Ireland. The California funk-rock band is his girlfriend's favorite group.

Robb purchased the tickets, but once he had hard copies of them, his girlfriend realized her significant other made a huge and pretty hilarious mistake.

Duncan Robb's girlfriend informed him via text that the tickets he thought were for Red Hot Chili Peppers were for Red Hot Chilli Pipers.

The tickets were for the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, which touts itself as "the most famous bagpipe band on the planet."
