Metallica to perform at BlizzCon

Metallica will perform at the BlizzCon 2014 gaming convention in Anaheim, California next month.

The band will perform the event’s closing concert on November 8.

“BlizzCon is on!,” posted Metallica. “The annual gathering of those around the globe who are part of the gaming communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment’s huge games Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft is taking place in Anaheim, CA and lucky for us, they have invited us to their party.”

BlizzCon fetaures developer panels, exclusive interviews, intense eSports tournaments, the legendary Friday night contests, and now Metallica.

“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.”

BlizzCon is sold-out, but fans can watch the action online with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, which offers comprehensive coverage of both days of the event - including the community contests hosted by Chris Hardwick on Friday evening and Metallica’s performance on Saturday night.

In addition to the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, DIRECTV customers in the United States have the option to watch the show from home by ordering the BlizzCon 2014 Pay Per View event, priced at $39.99 USD (includes access to the Virtual Ticket online stream).
