Valentine’s Day plans tend to have pretty high-stakes, so plenty of couples try to go all out. Unfortunately, this couple’s huge plans ended up being totally different than what they planned. The two mistakenly flew to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers and totally flubbed their Valentine’s Day plans. Duncan Robb thought he got his girlfriend tickets to see her favorite band the Red Hot Chili Peppers but he accidentally got tickets to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers — a bagpipe band.
Robb explained to Storyful, “When I clicked on and got tickets in row Q and for thirty pounds each, I thought what a bargain, there must not be many tickets left and snatched then up straight away. Also, I saw the date was so I could make it into a Valentine’s Day weekend — kill two birds with one stone.”
The tickets were a Christmas gift for her and Robb bought plane tickets to see the band in Ireland. No one realized the mistake until it was too late, so the couple went to the show. Robb said it was definitely an experience, especially because of the variety of songs the pipers could play. And, despite the lack of ‘Californication,’ his girlfriend got a souvenir T-shirt.
