"Weird Al" Yankovic Performing at BlizzCon 2016

His performance is slated for the evening of November 5.


Blizzard Entertainment today announced that "Weird Al" Yankovic will be the musical guest at this year's BlizzCon, which takes place next month.

The parody singer, known for songs like "White & Nerdy" and "Amish Paradise," will perform on Saturday, November 5, to close at the show.

BlizzCon is completely sold out, but you watch the concert by purchasing a BlizzCon virtual ticket for $40.

"We're super excited to close out our tenth BlizzCon with a performance from an epic showman--and fellow geek," Blizzard CEO Mike Morhaime said in a statement. "Weird Al has entertained millions of people around the world with his hilarious music, and we're thrilled that he's bringing mandatory fun to the show and everyone following along with a virtual ticket."

Weird Al himself added, "I'm very excited to be playing at BlizzCon, because it'll be one of the few times in my life where a significant percentage of the audience is even nerdier than I am!"

Past BlizzCons have featured concerts from Ozzy Osbourne, The Offspring, Blink 182, Tenacious D, Foo Fighters, Metallica, and Linkin Park.

2016 is the 20th anniversary of the Diablo franchise. There is a lot of discussion about the possibility of Diablo 4, but this is just a rumor for now.
