VIDEO: Metallica perform at BlizzCon 2014

Metallica performed the closing concert at the BlizzCon 2014 gaming convention in Anaheim, California on Saturday and video from the event has surfaced.

The band’s 14-song set opened with “Hit The Lights” before running through tracks from their 30-plus year career.

The annual BlizzCon features developer panels, exclusive interviews, intense eSports tournaments and the legendary Friday night contests.

Up next, Metallica will be featured among the artists to perform at The Concert For Valor on Tuesday, November 11, a first-of-its-kind event to honor America's veterans and their families.

The live three-hour concert on Veterans Day will include a wide variety of diverse artists including Bruce Springsteen, Eminem, Dave Grohl, Rihanna, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx and Carrie Underwood, among others.

In addition to honoring veterans, the concert will serve as a fundraising event supporting a number of veterans’ service organizations assisting servicemen and women with employment, education opportunities, health and wellness and integration back into civilian life.

“We’re excited to play for those who have given so much of themselves for others as the night shines the spotlight on the more than 20 million American veterans who have served,” said Metallica.

The Concert For Valor will be broadcast live on HBO from the National Mall in Washington, D.C on Tuesday, November 11 at 7:00 p.m. ET/4:00 p.m. PT.

The event will air on all HBO channels with an open signal allowing non-subscribers to view this unique event.
