Hosted by Vice Magazine and EA, the game-inspired concert will also feature Canadian thrashers 3 Inches of Blood, all-girl band Unholy Pink and a DJ set by former Black Flag and Circle Jerks frontman Keith Morris. Even cooler, the show is free, the only downside being that in order to get in you have to sign up and then be selected for admittance, and you have to be over 21.
A few sites have mentioned the possibility that Jack Black could show up to the event, either as part of Tenacious D or simply as the star of Brutal Legend, or that Tim Schafer himself could put in an appearance. There's been absolutely no indication whatsoever that this will happen but since the show just happens to be taking place on the opening night of Comic Con, who knows? Anything's possible.
The Brutal Legend Metal Meltdown will take place at 4th and B in San Diego on July 23. Metal Meltdown and Comic Con - Two great reasons to visit the city. What more could you ask for?
