"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.
