Elderly men escape nursing home for German heavy metal festival

Elderly men escape nursing home for German heavy metal festival

Anxious staff at the German nursing home alerted the police after the pair vanished.

According to the German news outlet Deutsche Welle, nursing home officials contacted police when they noticed that the two men were missing from the facility. They were said to be, "disoriented and dazed". But this year's festival also featured a couple of on-the-run metalheads who were clearly enticed by a stunning bill of bands.

Police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld said they were clearly fans. The festival, sometimes called the "the Metal Mecca", takes place each year in the small town of Wacken in Germany. Among this year's scheduled performers: Walking Dead on Broadway, Judas Priest, Arch Enemy, Cannibal Corpse and Die from Sorrow.

The elderly gentlemen aren't the only people from an older generation to appreciate harder music.
