Foo Fighters are confirmed of the headline act at the closing concert at BlizzCon 2011 taking place at the Anaheim Convention Center October 21-22. Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. made the announcement on September 28th, with CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime stating, “There’s no better way to cap off two days of gaming entertainment than by blowing the roof off the convention center with an awesome rock concert. Everyone attending BlizzCon and watching from home can look forward to ending the show with a bang when Foo Fighters bring the house down.”
Tickets are already sold out to the event, however Foo Fighters fans can watch the show online (as well as other coverage from the event) by ordering a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket thru www.blizzcon.com/live-stream.
The Artist Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain will open up for Foo Fighters, playing familiar and new songs “drawn from the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo universes.”
“We’re pretty sure that in the future, music historians will look back at BlizzCon 2011 as the unquestionable pinnacle of Foo Fighters’ long and illustrious career,” commented Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters founder and frontman. “We look forward to living up to that prediction by bringing the Horde and Alliance together to rock the hell out of Anaheim next month.”
