This Guy Snuck Into A Band's VIP Section By Editing Their Wikipedia Page

Seeing your favourite artist live is a different experience altogether. But what if you could get to see them from the VIP section without having to pay for it?

That’s what Adam Boyd did when he went to see The Sherlocks at the Royal Albert Hall in Manchester. Taking to Facebook to tell his story, he wrote:

So last night I went to see a band, but we got in late and our view was shite. In my drunken state I edited the band’s Wikipedia page to say I was family, and it worked! I got into the roped off VIP area because of it.

Editing the band’s Wikipedia page, he wrote that he was the lead singer Kiaran Crook‘s cousin, even going to add that their debut single ‘Live for the Moment‘ was influenced by him.

Talking about the whole incident, he said:

I cannot believe it worked. I was expecting to be kicked out for trying. The Wikipedia idea came about due to my frustration of not being able to see any of the supporting band and worrying if I’d have the same problem with The Sherlocks when they came on. Because we were next to the bar downstairs, I looked up and saw the VIP entrance and told my friends ‘I’m going to try and get up there’ but they were calling me an idiot and saying I wouldn’t get in.

Regardless I went up, made my way to the area, and realised I had no way of actually getting in. I needed an excuse, a reason to be let in. I don’t know how the idea climbed to the top of all the other drunken ones I was probably having then, but it came to me to change their Wiki page so I was included in it.

Who knew getting into the VIP section would be so easy? We wonder if this will work in India though.
