That last one seems a little much to hope for.

They did some epic trolling last year though. XD

@(Unverified) No titan! "Some of you might have seen some recent speculation out there regarding the unannounced MMO and BlizzCon. There’s going to be a ton of information and content at the show -- including a closing concert by Foo Fighters, which we just revealed today -- but we want to be clear up front that we’re not going to be discussing the unannounced MMO."

@TheJackman

Then it will be an uneventful blizzcon again like last year. Blizzard needs to get their head out of their asses and start teasing some Titan because before you know it, SWTOR and GW2 will be stomping on their lazy asses here soon.

@Bhima When companies talk about games 5 years before they come out it's really annoying.

I was wondering who they were going to get for this years BlizzCon. Congrats Blizz, good choice.

Uh, no. That was Tenacious D with Dave Grohl as their drummer.

Going to be seriously pissed if nobody in attendance goes the Forsaken Cobain route even if it's just a sign. Nerf Aimed Shot/Steady Shot/Kill Shot would also be acceptable.

This is pretty neat.. when your company gets this big you got this kind of cash to throw at entertainers. Kinda reminds me of that movie "Brewster's Millions" or something.

("What? What do you mean the Beatles say they can't get together again because two of them are dead??? Just offer the dead guys twice as much money as the live ones to come!!! Handle it!")

btw: who is SoE having at their FanFaires, or do they have this type of fare at their faire?

@Ilikesoup ha ha ha. well its more the 7 hour drive. and as far as stay relevant? Their last album went #1. all of their albums have sold well. Gotta stick up for my boys, love them =) It is odd they're playing Blizzcon but they have, and still are, very relevant in the music industry.

@Ren54

LOL Ren "the Troll King," Dave is probably a fan of WoW, like George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher from Cannibal Corpse. No need to bring Kurt into this, he never wanted to be in the spotlight to begin with; no doubt he would have wanted nothing to do with any concert.(Hence the over use of heroine and the final shotgun blast to the face).

There is no end to the hate you have for Blizzard or any game that is not Rift, I bet if your precious Rift conventions invited the Foo Fighters you would be all for it. Good luck on your unbeatable campaign against forces that dominate the MMO world. We'll just stick you in the minority category.

Dave was there last year drumming for Tenacious D. I suspect he might just be a Blizzard fan himself, not doing it just for the money.

@Ren54 I'll never understand why you think Rift is anything other than a cheap WoW knockoff, but I do share your hatred towards Blizz. So a big FFUU to Blizz and their next expansion featuring Kung Fu Pandas.

"We're pretty sure that in the future, music historians will look back at BlizzCon 2011 as the unquestionable DEMISE of Foo Fighters' long and illustrious career. 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"

Fixed it there for ya Dave.

just lost all respect for the once mighty Foo.

@(Unverified) If you're getting your panties in a bunch over a band performing at a gaming convention, then you never had much respect for Foo in the first place.
