A name misreading led one couple to see the Red Hot Chilli Pipers bagpipe band on a Valentine’s Day getaway rather than the woman’s favorite band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. 

Duncan Robb thought he had snagged a great deal on the tickets and gave them to his girlfriend for Christmas as part of a weekend getaway, 6ABC reported. The couple planned to fly from England where they live to Belfast, Northern Ireland, for the show.

A few days before the show, Robb’s girlfriend figured out the mistake when she couldn’t find anything online or in the news about the Red Hot Chili Peppers performing in Belfast. They decided to keep their plans and go to the show anyway, and said they had a good time, NPR reported.

“(We) just had to laugh about it — what else was there to do!” Robb said, 6ABC reported. “The only saving grace was that we had found out three days before and not while we were in the arena.”

They hope to see the Chili Peppers in the near future, 6ABC reported. 

Red Hot Chilli Pipers bills itself as the most famous bagpipe band in the world and plays bagpipe versions of various classic rock and modern songs, but has not yet played any Red Hot Chili Peppers covers, NPR reported. 

The Chilli Pipers won a BBC reality competition in 2007 and played two sold-out shows in Bermuda last month.
