2 elderly men escape nursing home to attend huge heavy metal festival

Festival Crowd

Then spare a thought for the two elderly gentlemen who escaped from a German care home and were found at a heavy metal music festival. Police had to escort them back to the nursing home with a taxi and a patrol vehicle.

Just to give you a taste of what they most likely took in, here's Sepultura with their cover of Black Sabbath's "Symptom Of The Universe".

Every year the German town of Wacken plays host to the Wacken Open Air Festival.

The nursing home alerted police after the men were discovered to be missing from the home.

Police are also investigating an eleventh murder- a 32-year-old woman who was found dead around 9 p.m. Chicago police are working with federal authorities to help prevent more violent crimes in the city.

As dw.com reports, the men were found at the festival - which saw the likes of Danzig and Judas Priest perform - at 3am and police said they were "disorientated and dazed". The four-day event is said to be the world's largest heavy metal festival.

"Both were disoriented and apathetic", Merle Neufeld, a local police spokesman, told NDR broadcaster.

Authorities later located the senior headbangers at 3 a.m.at the festival, and the two golden-aged metalheads apparently were reluctant to leave. Perhaps they can get some matching tattoos to mark the occasion.

The pair disappeared without warning from an old people's home in the rural Dithmarschen area of northern Germany on Friday night, prompting staff to call in the emergency services.
