Blizzard Entertainment has just announced that this year’s live concert to close out the convention will be performed by Linkin Park. The live performance has always been a key element to the two-day gaming convention. Last year, Metallica headlined the con with 26 thousand gamers in attendance.

Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime released a statement saying he is excited to host the band at this year’s event.

“We’re beyond excited to welcome SoCal natives Linkin Park to close out BlizzCon with a bang on Saturday night. We can’t think of a better way to bring two full days of gaming and action-packed eSports matches to an epic conclusion than with a band that’ll carry the weekend’s electricity through to the very end.”

Lead singer Chester Bennington commented on the announcement, saying it was a big first for the band and that he was “looking forward to giving all the gamers out there a killer rock show.”

The two-day event is already sold out, but there are still Virtual Tickets available where you can watch the all the panels, contest and even the live performance all from the confront of your own home.

BlizzCon takes place November 6 & 7 in Anaheim, CA.
