Robb found cheap tickets for her favorite band the Red Hot Chili Peppers — and they were great seats. When the tickets arrived, they were for the Red Hot Chili Pipers, a bagpipe band.

RACHEL MARTIN, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Rachel Martin. Duncan Robb thought he was getting his girlfriend the best gift ever. He found cheap tickets for her favorite band, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and they were great concert seats. What a deal, right? But days before the show when the tickets actually arrived in the mail, they realized they were not going to see the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They had scored tickets for the Red Hot Chilli Pipers, a bagpipe band.

(SOUNDBITE OF SONG, "EVERYBODY DANCE NOW")

RED HOT CHILLI PIPERS: (Singing) Everybody dance now.

(Playing bagpipes).

MARTIN: It's MORNING EDITION.
