2 elderly men sneak out of nursing home to attend heavy metal festival





You don’t need to be young for being a fan of rock. Breaking Benjamin, Three Days Grace, Evanescence, Foo Fighters, Guns N’ Roses, the Beatles, Metallica, Led Zeppelin, the Rolling Stones, Queen, Pink Floyd, Nirvana, Nickelback… the list of awesome rock bands is never-ending.

No wonder two elderly men attended the world’s largest heavy metal festival, the Wacken Open Air, in 2018. But there’s nothing to be surprised about in that, is there?

No, what’s bizarre is that these two men slipped away from their nursing home in Germany to attend the event!

On August 3, 2018, the pair was found after the festival ended at 3 AM local time.

The two men were reported missing by their retirement home in Dithmarscher, after which, Itzehoe police found them. The pair seemed too dazed and disoriented when found, according to the police.
The police also said that the men didn’t want to leave the four-day festival.

Indeed, things went so far, the police had to take precautionary measures to take the pair back safely to their retirement home. The men had to be escorted with a patrol car and a taxi, said the police.

Festival organizers even gave a shoutout to the elderly fans, saying that no one is ever too old to rock.
2018 saw the world-renowned festival being attended by around 75,000 people. The acts put on by Hatebreed, Danzig, In Flames, and Judas Priest at the event made headlines.

The Wacken open Air festival has been held in northern Germany since 1990.

Rock on, fellas!
