BlizzCon, which is being held on November 7th and 8th in Anaheim, California this year, is the go-to fan gathering for those who enjoy Blizzards many-storied franchises, Including Warcraft, Starcraft, and Diablo; and is a place that fans can gather, mingle, and generally geek out over this collective love of all things Blizzard. This year, in addition to all the usual fun to be had, Metallica will also be hitting the stage to give the crowd a blast of heavy metal to put a fitting end to a weekend of fandom and fun.
“We’re thrilled to have Metallica blowing out our speakers at BlizzCon this year,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “After two full days of epic gaming and intense eSports action, an earth-shaking concert is the perfect sendoff for everyone at the show and watching from home.”
Tickets to the convention itself are currently sold out, but those wishing to view the festivities from home will be able to purchase a Virtual Ticket to the event through Blizzards website for $39.99 that will give them access to comprehensive online coverage of the event, including live streams of Saturday’s fan contest hosted by Comedian Chris Hardwick, host of Comedy Central’s @Midnight, and the Metallica concert on the last day of the con.
