Blizzard Quote:

We are, give and take, a week away from BlizzCon 2010, the convention that celebrates all of our pretty properties. Fire it up with Deathwing, creep and conquer with Kerrigan and raise your horns for the big D…Diablo of course! Although Tenacious D would be an appropriate second choice at the closing concert.

But what is BlizzCon without the Sons of the Storm on board and representin’? We’ve got a one-hour signing session lined up on Saturday, 10AM to 11AM at the developer signing area. So be there early with whatever you want us to soil with our signatures. Also three of our own, Samwise, Raneman and Red Knuckle are going to do live sketching and painting demos at the artists’s stage. If you want to procure the secrets of the Storm, this is your chance.

See you in the field!

Tenacious D Live in Concert at BlizzCon 2010

Jack Black and Kyle Gass to Entertain a Sold-Out Crowd During Closing Ceremony of Blizzard Entertainment’s Epic Gaming Festival

IRVINE, Calif., Oct 11, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) — Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that the greatest band in the world*, Tenacious D, will perform at the closing concert during this year’s sold-out BlizzCon. Taking place October 22-23 at the Anaheim Convention Center, BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft game universes. While tickets to the convention are currently sold out, viewers can watch at home by ordering a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, offering over 50 hours of event coverage (including Tenacious D’s performance) globally over the Internet and also on DIRECTV in the United States.

Tenacious D is made up of musical visionaries Jack Black and Kyle Gass. After forming in 1994, the duo rose to rock god-dom following the release of the HBO cult-hit series Tenacious D: The Greatest Band on Earth. Since then, Tenacious D has released two albums and a pair of live DVDs, sold out arenas around the world, and starred in their own feature-length movie, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. At the BlizzCon closing ceremony on October 23, the band will perform an earth-shattering set that includes the debut of new, soon-to-be-legendary songs.

“The best way to wrap up two days of epic entertainment is with an epic rock concert–and few bands fit the bill like Tenacious D,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to a great show and can’t wait to see what Jack and Kyle have in store for everyone attending BlizzCon and watching from home.”

In addition to serving as a gathering place for the Blizzard Entertainment gaming communities, BlizzCon will have an array of activities, including discussion panels, competitive and casual tournaments, contests, hands-on playtime with current and upcoming Blizzard Entertainment games, and more. Viewers at home can order a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket for $39.95 USD, available as a multi-channel Internet stream around the world (pricing and availability may vary by region) and also via DIRECTV in the United States . Visit www.blizzcon.com for more details and ordering information.

To keep pace with the continued growth of World of Warcraft as well as development on other Blizzard Entertainment games, the company is currently hiring for numerous open positions. More information on available career opportunities can be found at www.blizzard.com/jobs. As BlizzCon draws closer, further details about the show will be announced at www.blizzcon.com.
