Elderly men escape nursing home to go to Wacken metal festival

Whether or not that happens will be a different story altogether.

The nursing home alerted police after the gentlemen were found to be missing from the center.

A pair of pensioners in Germany escaped their nursing home to attend the world's biggest metal festival.

A police spokesperson remarked, rather nonchalantly, that the men "obviously liked the metal festival" which is a statement that is likely to rank in the higher echelons of the Great Ders of History.

The nursing home then arranged for a vehicle to get the men back to the nursing home safely after police escorted them from the festival.

Citi Open: Murray Breaks Down After Reaching Quarters
Falling a set behind appeared to spark Murray to life and he grabbed an early break in the second against the world No. 93. They had met twice before in qualifying matches, most recently in 2014, but never during the real rounds of a tournament.

A local police officer Merle Neufeld said: 'Both were disoriented and apathetic'.

Then, Police found the elderly metalheads at 3 a.m.at Wacken Open Air.

The festival was sold out with 75,000 people expected to attend each of the four days and out of those 75,000 were a couple of grey-haired geriatrics. And potentially getting involved with a mosh pit or two.

This year's festival was headlined by the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Judas Priest, Danzig and Hatebreed, with performances by Vince Neil, Dokken, Tremonti, Cannibal Corpse and Fozzy, among many others.

Police praised festival-goers for good behaviour and said they had only been needed in relation to a few minor drug seizures.
