Activision has announced that blink-182 will be closing this year’s BlizzCon.

“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” said blink-182’s Tom DeLonge.

The highly-anticipated video game convention takes place on November 8 and 9 in Anaheim, CA. Although it has been sold out for months, virtual tickets can still be purchased for $40 here which allow viewers to watch events on their computers, including blink-182' performance.



This comes less than two weeks after the band announced a handful of Southern California shows in which they will be, for the first time, playing their 2003 Untitled album in its entirety.

While these shows all sold out within a matter of minutes and with no option of a virtual ticket, fans can expect to see plenty of footage uploaded online of the band playing a few songs they have never played live.
