Longtime rock band Metallica will play during the closing ceremony of BlizzCon 2014 next month, hitting the stage on November 8, Blizzard has confirmed. The event takes place at the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, California. The event is a celebration of the company's Diablo, Startcraft, and World of Warcraft franchises, and will host tournaments, panel presentations, and hands-on game demos.

"We're thrilled to have Metallica blowing out our speakers at BlizzCon this year," said Mike Morhaime, Blizzard CEO, in a press statement. "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."

 

For gamers unable to attend the event live, as BlizzCon 2014 is sold out, high-definition BlizzCon virtual tickets are available for $40.
