Linkin Park to Play at BlizzCon 2015

Linkin Park will cap off this year’s BlizzCon with a performance at its closing ceremony.

Every year BlizzCon hires a big-name musical artist to perform for its closing ceremony, effectively giving convention-goers a free concert for the cost of their ticket. Last year, Metallica rocked the show, which is a pretty hard act to follow. This year, we’ve got Linkin Park, which i’m sure will be met with… mixed, reactions.

“The Grammy Award-winning rock band-and the biggest band on Facebook, with 63 million fans and counting-will be taking the stage the evening of Saturday, November 7, to provide an epic send-off for everyone at this year’s convention,” wrote Blizzard in a blog post.

“We’re beyond excited to welcome SoCal natives Linkin Park to close out BlizzCon with a bang on Saturday night,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “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.”

“Playing BlizzCon will be one hell of a first for us,” said Chester Bennington, lead vocalist of Linkin Park. “We’re looking forward to giving all the gamers out there a killer rock show.”

If you weren’t lucky enough to snag a BlizzCon ticket in the seven seconds before they sold out, you can still watch the Linkin Park concert live from the comfort of your home by purchasing the BlizzCon virtual ticket.
