    Blizzard has revealed this year’s closing act for BlizzCon 2016 and it’s going to be Weird Al Yankovic.

    The Grammy Award–winning pop parodist will be taking the stage the evening of Saturday, November 5, to provide an epic send-off for everyone celebrating this year’s convention. If you didn’t score tickets to the show, Blizzard gamers and Weird Al fans around the world can still get a front row seat at home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket.

    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.
