Blizzard has revealed this year’s closing act for BlizzCon 2016 and it’s going to be Weird Al Yankovic.
BlizzCon is the biggest Blizzard party of the year, packed with in-depth developer panels, intense esports tournaments, the legendary Friday night contests, and what’s sure to be an epic finale from Weird Al.
While Weird Al was relatively amusing when I was about 10 years old, but he’s not someone I would have to see live. It’s a pretty “weird” choice when you consider previous years have hosted the likes of Metallica and Ozzy.
Thankfully I won’t have to sit through it this year. I’m sure he’s a great guy, and perhaps the 16-20 audience will get a kick out of it, but he’s been around since 1976 so the younger audience might not get some of the older material.
