Wacken, Germany — Two elderly men escaped their nursing home in northern Germany for a night of heavy metal, according to a German news organization Deutsche Welle.
The men allegedly snuck out of their nursing home on Friday to attend Wacken Open Air, the world’s largest heavy metal festival.
Local police found the men at the festival around 3 am and told DW the men were ‘disoriented and dazed’.
The men were reportedly reluctant to leave the fest but were returned to the nursing home safely, according to DW.

My grandmother would get a call from NYPD to come and get him. This happened four or five times. The officers would end up putting him into a taxi and send him home.
NYPD called one night and told her that they had him in Harlem. She didn’t have enough money to pay that taxi fare. She told the officers to put him on the subway train pointed towards the Bronx. If he got off the train before he made it to the station, the next cops that found him would call, and the fare would be more affordable. She was right!
