After the home reported them missing, police found the two at 3 a.m.at Wacken Open Air, the world's biggest heavy metal festival. It took a bit of convincing, but the two were eventually escorted back to their nursing home with the help of a taxi and a patrol vehicle.

The men were reportedly not particularly keen on leaving the festival, so police had to escort them back to their nursing home via a taxi and a patrol vehicle.

Police found the pensioners at 3am, in the crowd at Wacken Open Air music festival in Wacken, Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.

Oil prices edge up after Saudi output dips, US drilling stalls

Whether or not the rebels meant to end up at Wacken Open Air has not been confirmed, but police spokeswoman Merle Neufeld reportedly told public broadcaster Norddeutscher Rundfunk, "They obviously liked the metal festival".

"They had obviously liked the metal festival", she told NDR, in a statement we use Google Translate to interpret.

A local officer, Merle Neufeld, said: "Both were disoriented and apathetic". "The care home quickly organised a return transport after police picked them up".

The renewed sanctions target the trade of automobiles, coal, gold and other metals, as well as Iranian purchases of U.S. dollars. The first round of USA sanctions on Iran goes into effect in August, followed by ones targeting Iran's oil exports in November.


Waken Open Air festival attracts more than 75,000 people each year.

Headliners this year included Judas Priest, Dimmu Borgir, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Gojira and Children of Bodom.

Police praised festival-goers for good behaviour and said they had only been needed in relation to a few minor drug seizures.
