Elderly metalheads escape nursing home to attend Wacken Open Air

Proving that you're never too old to rock, two elderly men snuck out of a German nursing home on Friday (Aug. 3rd) to make their way to Wacken Open Air, which is billed as the biggest heavy metal festival in the world.

After a frantic search, police found the metal-heads "disoriented and dazed" at 3am in the grounds of Wacken Open Air, the world's biggest heavy metal festival.

And my gran can't even stay up past 8:30pm.

The aging metalheads were reluctant to leave the party so police had to send them home in a taxi, escorted by a police auto.

After being alerted by the nursing home, authorities reportedly located the missing pair at a casual 3 a.m.at the festival - that's when the last stages finish up for the night, so these guys are pretty hardcore.

"They obviously liked the metal festival", police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld told German public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk.

The 29th edition of the legendary festival was fully sold out, with an expected 75,000 people expected to attend the four-day festival.

Headliners this year included Judas Priest, Dimmu Borgir, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gojira and Children of Bodom.

Police praised revelers this year for good behavior with little interference needed from police beside a few minor drug seizures.

We can't help but wonder whether they're going to go for round two next year but one thing's for sure, if they need any help we're all over it.
