Blizzard have announced that Foo Fighters will headline the closing concert of this year's BlizzCon event which takes place October 21-22 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

The event is of course already sold out but you can watch at home by ordering a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, offering comprehensive live coverage of the event globally over the Internet and also on DIRECTV in the United States.

Opening up the concert will be The Artist Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain, who are returning to BlizzCon.

"There's no better way to cap off two days of gaming entertainment than by blowing the roof off the convention center with an awesome rock concert," said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. "Everyone attending BlizzCon and watching from home can look forward to ending the show with a bang when Foo Fighters bring the house down."

"We're pretty sure that in the future, music historians will look back at BlizzCon 2011 as the unquestionable pinnacle of Foo Fighters' long and illustrious career," said Dave Grohl, Foo Fighters founder and frontman. "We look forward to living up to that prediction by bringing the Horde and Alliance together to rock the hell out of Anaheim next month."

You can order your Virtual Ticket via the EU (£24.99/€29.99) or US ($39.99) BlizzCon sites.
