Physical tickets for BlizzCon 2013 are sold out, but fans can purchase a Virtual Ticket for $40 to take in the weekend's panels, events, and the Blink 182 concert.

"Nothing beats touring and playing in front of a live crowd," Blink-182 guitarist and vocalist Tom DeLonge said.

"Our roots are in Southern California, so playing at BlizzCon will be like having a show in our own backyard--only with a couple thousand more orcs and elves in loincloths and bikini armor."

Past BlizzCon music acts included Ozzy Osbourne, The Offspring, Tenacious D, and Foo Fighters, among others.

BlizzCon is an all-things Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft fan convention that features panels, tournaments, contests, and hands-on time with upcoming Blizzard games.

Warcraft movie director Duncan Jones will lead a panel during the event discussing the upcoming film based on Blizzard's popular fantasy franchise.

The BlizzCon 2013 schedule also includes the WCS Global Finals for StarCraft II, live play sessions of recently re-revealed MOBA Heroes of the Storm, and a preview of Diablo III expansion Reaper of Souls.
