Blizzard have just announced that Linkin Park, the ‘biggest band on Facebook’ will be taking to the stage on the evening of Saturday November 7th to close off this year’s event. The comments on the official site suggest they are a popular choice. If you’re not attending in person, fear not, you’ll be able to watch the set via a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket costing $39.99 which also gives you access to all the panels, interviews and general show chat across the two days.
In case you missed it here are details of Blizzard’s Diablo 3 presence at Blizzcon this year. In polite circles it’s what you’d refer to as bijou, although I’ve seen it described differently in those comments.
Update: Vote from last year when Metallica was named the closing act and there was some debate over their appropriateness. We put in a lot of vote options then, but there would have had to be a *lot* more before one of them featured Linkin Park.
