"We're thrilled to have METALLICA blowing out our speakers at BlizzCon this year," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "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."
BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment's Warcraft, Diablo and StarCraft game universes. Taking place November 7 and 8 at the Anaheim Convention Center, this year's show featured a wide array of activities, including discussion panels, tournaments, contests, hands-on play time with the latest Blizzard Entertainment games, and more.
Previous BlizzCon performers have included FOO FIGHTERS, TENACIOUS D, BLINK-182 and OZZY OSBOURNE.
METALLICA will release a limited 12-inch vinyl single of the new song "The Lords Of Summer" on Record Store Day Black Friday, November 28.
