Blizzard Entertainment has announced that Blink-182 will perform at this year’s BlizzCon gaming festival . The band will headline the closing concert at the festival, which takes place on November 8-9 at the Anaheim Convention Center. While tickets to the convention are sold out, viewers can watch the festivities at home by ordering the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket for $39.99 online or on DirecTV for $49.99, which features comprehensive live coverage of the event, including Blink-182’s performance.

In a statement, guitarist Tom DeLonge says he’s excited about performing at the festival. “Nothing beats touring and playing in front of a live crowd,” notes DeLonge.“Our roots are in Southern California, so playing at BlizzCon will be like having a show in our own backyard -- only with a couple thousand more orcs and elves in loincloths and bikini armor.” For non-gamers, orcs and elves are characters in World of Warcraft , one of Blizzard Entertainment’s most popular games. You're welcome.
