USA Today reports the nursing home alerted police after the gentlemen were found to be missing from the center.
Police found the aging metalheads at 3 am at Wacken Open Air, the world’s biggest heavy metal festival. A police spokeswoman said they were “disoriented and dazed.”
The two men didn’t want to leave the four-day festival so police escorted them home with the help of a taxi and a patrol car.
“They obviously liked the metal festival,” police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld told public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk. “The care home quickly organized a return transport after police picked them up.”
The legendary festival, in its 29th year, was sold out with 75,000 people expected to attend the four-day festival.
Headline acts this year include Danzig, Judas Priest, Hatebreed, In Flames, Running Wild, Arch Enemy, In Extremo and Eskimo Callboy.
A heatwave in Germany forced organizers to warn fans against fire and dust risks.
Police said revelers behaved well this year and officers needed to do little outside of a few minor drug seizures.
