The Prince of Darkness, and World of Warcraft spokesman, Ozzy Osbourne will be headlining the closing concert at this year's BlizzCon, Activision announced today.


"Our goal with BlizzCon is to deliver an unforgettable weekend of entertainment, and we can't think of a better way to close out this year's show than having Ozzy rock the house," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Many of us at Blizzard are lifelong fans of Ozzy's music, and we're thrilled that he'll be performing for all of our BlizzCon attendees as well as those joining us via DIRECTV and the live Internet stream."

The performance will kick off on Aug. 22, the last of the two day convention about all things Blizzard, but most things World of Warcraft.

Tickets to the event sold out in minutes, but if you're hard pressed to catch some live coverage of the event and see Ozzy's performance, it will be streamed both on DIRECTV and online for a price.

Of course, you could also just hang out hear and read all of Fahey's wonderful coverage. Where else will you read about entire backdrops being crushed by a reporter?



I'm sorry but Ozzy's a sellout. I've seen him live before and his show opens up with a pop culture montage of him in Britany Spears music videos and cut into popular movies at the time. This is no better, Blizzard and World of Warcraft are huge. Hes a far cry from the Prince of Darkness he used to be.
