BlizzCon 2013 to End with Blink-182 ConcertJohn Llewellyn Martin |
After you hear all of the big news at BlizzCon 2013, you can celebrate all the small things with a closing ceremony concert by Blink-182.
Blizzard Entertainment's BlizzCon 2013 will be two days of celebration centered around the Warcraft, StarCraft and Diablo game universes. To end the weekend of geeky revelry, Blizzard has snagged SoCal punk trio Blink-182. What better way to end a game show than with a rock show?
Mike Morhaime, CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Entertainment, said, "After two days of hard work watching games and playing games and talking about games, we can’t think of a better way to kick back and relax than to have your face melted by Blink-182. We’re thrilled to have such an awesome band helping us bring BlizzCon to an epic conclusion.”
Tom DeLonge, Blink-182 guitarist and vocalist, said, "Our roots are in Southern California, so playing at BlizzCon will be like having a show in our own backyard—only with a couple thousand more orcs and elves in loincloths and bikini armor.”
Though folk will be in costume (or various states of undress because of their costumes), and having fun, I think it's safe to say that Mark, Tom and Travis won't be running through the streets naked. Well, we'll see.
Even if you weren't lucky enough to grab a ticket for the convention, you can still catch all of the action with a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket. BlizzCon will take place Nov. 8-9.
