LADs Take Teen Under Their Wings To Catfish Gig After His Friend Cancelled On His Birthday

When Adam Mavin and his friend went to buy a stranger's ticket for Catfish and the Bottlemen, he thought it would be a quick exchange before going for a pint.

That was until he met up with Jake Murray who was supposed to be celebrating his 18th birthday at his first ever gig - until his pal cancelled at the last minute due to a mix-up with plans.

When Adam, 23, asked Jake what time he was meeting his mates to celebrate, the teen explained the situation and told him that he was alone.

This was when Adam and his friend Kyle Dobson, 24, immediately invited Jake along to watch the concert with them and they even bought him some birthday bevs as well.

Speaking to LADbible, Adam from Bedlington in Northumberland, said: "My mate Kyle already had a ticket to go and see Catfish and the Bottlemen in Newcastle. So I looked on Twitter to see if I could get a ticket and some lad was selling some, I didn't know who he was.

"I went to meet him and went to walk to a cash point with him. We were cracking on asking how old he was and stuff and he said it was his 18th birthday so I asked when he was meeting his mates and he said, 'no they're not coming, they've bailed on us last minute' so we were just like, 'stay with us, we're going for a few pints first'.

"He stayed with us and we took him out on the drink and then we went to the arena, seen the gig - it was his first gig - and then we got him a bit p**sed and put him on his train home afterwards."

The two LADs made sure they celebrated Jake's birthday properly as green keeper Adam revealed: "He was 18 at midnight, we gave him a cuddle and told him happy birthday."

Adam continued: "It was his first gig as well, you normally remember them - hopefully he will remember this.

"His mam and dad messaged us on Facebook, thanking us and that. I told them I would meet up for a pint with him some time soon. They just said thanks for looking after him and he had a great night."

We also spoke to Jake who said: "I was really looking forward to Catfish due to them being one of my favourite bands and it was the first concert I've been to so I was really excited for it.

"My friend and I had originally planned on going, but he got his dates mixed up and I only checked with him late at night the day before, so he couldn't come with me due to family reasons and during the morning of the concert I couldn't find someone else since it was such short notice.

"In the end I had a really good birthday, Adam and Kyle were so nice and I had a really good time and on my actual birthday I got the day off of college and went out for a meal with my family."

We hope this is the beginning of a budding friendship.
