Foo Fighters at BlizzCon 2011

Yo, Kanye. I'm really happy for you. I'mma let you finish, but Blizzard just announced one of the best game convention musical appearances of all time, saying Foo Fighters will perform to close out BlizzCon 2011 in Anaheim next month:
Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that Foo Fighters will headline the closing concert of this year’s sold-out BlizzCon®, taking place October 21-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center. While tickets to the convention are currently sold out, viewers can watch at home by ordering a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, offering comprehensive live coverage of the event (including Foo Fighters' performance) globally over the Internet and also on DIRECTV® in the United States.

Over the course of their 16-year career, the Foo Fighters have sold tens of millions of records, won half a dozen Grammy awards, and raised countless voices in singalongs of iconic anthems like "Everlong," "My Hero," "Learn to Fly", "All My Life," “Best of You,” and “The Pretender.” Foo Fighters' BlizzCon debut marks founder Dave Grohl's triumphant return to the convention after playing drums for Tenacious D in last year's show, and comes during an international arena, stadium, and festival tour promoting their seventh album, the international #1 record Wasting Light.

Opening up the concert will be The Artist Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, who are returning to BlizzCon following a two-year interstellar tour through the Koprulu sector. Blizzard's in-house metal band will amp up the crowd with an earth-shaking set of both familiar and brand-new songs drawn from the Warcraft, StarCraft, and Diablo universes before turning the stage over to Foo Fighters for the main event.

tenacious d as in jack black? they really couldnt find anyone to play blizzcon last year?

Considering they're nerd rock (and don't get me wrong, I'm in the target audience there), I'd say they fit right in.

Or they should have. Their show itself was rather flat.

thats why im dumbfounded with the choice last year. considering how much money blizzard can throw around. the only time i ever saw tenacious d perform was on television. their music was eccentric. the highlight of their performance was jack black trashing his guitar and then bragging about it during the interview with letterman. he always talks about his mom who worked as a scientist for nasa. it seems the only connection he has to being a nerd.
