Red Hot Chili Peppers

Red Hot Chili Peppers were mistaken for Metallica by customs officials in Belarus.

The band are currently on tour in Europe in support of their new album ‘The Getaway’ when they were called into the customs office in the airport.

Once inside the office, the group were asked for their autographs, but were handed photos and memorabilia of James Hetfield’s band instead.

As Rolling Stone reports, bassist Flea wrote on Instagram: “We were called into customs officials office at an airport in Belarus and they asked us to sign a bunch of Metallica CD’s and photos.
