I won't lie, I get some cool perks being in radio. I can go to most concerts I want, and have access that most people do not. With that being said, this KID IS THE SMARTEST DUDE EVER for pulling this off.
Meet Adam Boyd of England, Adam like most teens just wanted to see his fave band from a better spot in the venue. So what did he do? He updated the bands Wikipedia page to make it look like he was related to the lead singer!
According to Daily Mail
He and his friends arrived to the concert late after their train was delayed and found their view was so bad, they couldn’t see the support act.
Adam noticed a bouncer guarding a VIP section upstairs and decided he would take his chances at trying to get in.
His plan was to pretend he was a relative of the band.
To make his claim have a bit more substance, Adam wrote that he was the cousin of lead singer Kiaran Crook and he influenced the band’s first single, ‘Live for the moment’.
Adam 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 realized 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.’
