Elderly men escape nursing home for heavy metal concert

Wacken Open Air 2018

Two older German men defied societal norms though when they attended the Wacken Open Air Festival.

Deutsche Well is reporting that police are saying that the men escaped their nursing home on Friday and were located at 3 am in the heart of the festival grounds. They were said to be, "disoriented and dazed". It's unclear whether their original intent was to attend the festival.

Whether or not the rebels meant to end up at Wacken Open Air has not been confirmed, but police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld reportedly told public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk, "They obviously liked the metal festival".

It was a pretty hardcore festival, with bands such as Cannibal Corpse, Die From Sorrow and Centuries of Decay on the lineup.

The elderly pair were reluctant to abort their plans and police said they escorted the men's taxi back to the retirement home "as a precaution". "However, the men were reluctant to go home, so a patrol vehicle accompanied the taxi as a precaution".

A photo showing other elderly people rocking out at the festival was posted on Twitter.

Police Spokesperson Merle Neufeld told broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk: "They obviously liked the metal festival". "How cool is that, please?"

You're never too old to rock on.
