It’s A Dream Come True For Her

It’s never too late to experience your first mosh pit. Take it from this elderly fan who came to Slayer’s show in Nampa, Idaho and had the time of her life. And of course, it was well-documented and has since become viral on social media. In the video, you can see her in a wheelchair and being pushed and surrounded by fellow fans. The energy is amazing – with everyone headbanging and rocking out to the music.

And it’s all thanks to her son-in-law who wrote in the clip’s description:

“I took my mother-in-law to the Slayer farewell tour as she is an old metal head. She had never in all her years been into a mosh pit. I feel everyone should experience it at least once, so I took her in her wheelchair and asked a couple of big guys to help me keep her safe and off we went. She had the best time of her life.”


She’s been a huge longtime fan of the band and with their possible retirement (other metal legends don’t believe they’re calling it quits though and we don’t exactly know if they’re seriously retiring after this tour), her son-in-law grabbed the chance to give her a once-in-a-lifetime experience. And as you can see in the video, she’s clearly having a grand time. Oh and don’t worry about the danger because most metalheads know when to be a bit gentle when the occasion calls for it – and in this case, everyone in the mosh pit helped keep the lady safe.

And obviously they’re more than happy to accommodate another Slayer fan because nothing unites the metal community than making sure they all go home with smiles on their faces.

This will surely melt your ice cold heart.
