Elderly men escape nursing home for German heavy metal festival

Wacken Open Air

This is as metal as it gets.

According to a report from German global broadcaster Deutsche Welle, two elderly men fled a nursing home on Friday to attend the world's largest heavy metal festival, Wacken Open Air.

Police found the pensioners at 3am, in the crowd at Wacken Open Air music festival in Wacken, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

The Metro reported that the ageing metal heads were reluctant to leave the party so police had to send them home in a taxi, escorted by a police vehicle. The four-day event is said to be the world's largest heavy metal festival.

Back in May, it was revealed that Chinese police had managed to take at least three suspects into custody after utilising the technology at concerts for Chinese pop star Jacky Cheung. This, likely after a day in which they circle pitted to the likes of Ghost, In Flames, Nightwish, Children of Bodom, Cannibal Corpse, Fozzy, Mr. Big, and a slew of others including the incredibly named Witch Taint.

Suffice to say, the runaways would have themselves a double kick drum pedal-fuelled time.
