When I’m old and grey, I’ll look back on this period in my life with extreme fondness as I recall being an absolute pest in the club smoker’s at 3 am and going full on festival-mode while surrounded by my nearest and dearest.
However, if these two old fellas are anything to go by, I could very well be partying hard until I dance my way to the grave, tinnie in hand and jaw going in a completely different direction.
Two elderly German blokes recently escaped their nursing home, went to a heavy metal festival and were eventually found at 3 am going absolutely off their chops.
Although when they were found they were a bit dazed and confused, “They obviously liked the metal festival,” police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld told public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk.
Thankfully, after a bit of persuading the care home was able to organise a lift home for the old fellas after the police had picked them up.
Over 75,000 people turned up to Wacken Open Air, a legendary heavy metal festival that’s often lauded as the best in the world.
Headline acts included Danzig, Judas Priest, Hatebreed, In Flames, Running Wild, Arch Enemy, In Extremo and Eskimo Callboy… and if that sounds like someone hopped on a heavy metal name generator and kept pressing go to you, then I’m glad I’m not the only one.
