Linkin Park Will Close Out BlizzCon 2015 With a "Killer Rock Show"

Hybrid Theory was released 15 years ago this week.


Grammy-winning rock band Linkin Park will perform at BlizzCon 2015 in November to close out the developer's annual two-day gaming event in southern California. Tickets to the show itself are sold out, but you can still buy a $40 BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, which includes an HD stream of the concert.

"Playing BlizzCon will be one hell of a first for us," lead singer Chester Bennington said in a statement. "We're looking forward to giving all the gamers out there a killer rock show."

This is Linkin Park's first performance at BlizzCon, but the band is no stranger to video games. Earlier this month, the band's subsidiary Machine Shop Ventures was part of the investment group that purchased League of Legends squad Team-8. Before that, the band made its own video game to promote an album.

BlizzCon 2015 runs November 6-7 at the Anaheim Convention Center. GameSpot will have a team on the ground to bring you all the news as it happens.

The Linkin Park concert will take place the evening of November 7. In past years, the Saturday evening concert has included some huge names, including Foo Fighters, The Offspring, and Ozzy Osbourne.

Linkin Park's landmark album, Hybrid Theory, celebrates its 15th anniversary this week. Bet that makes you feel old. The band is currently in the studio recording its seventh album.
