Blizzard announced today that Ozzy Osbourne will not be returning to BlizzCon. The lord of darkness has made way for Tenacious D to close the show on Saturday evening as part of the closing ceremonies.
Tenacious D is comprised of Jack Black and Kyle Gass and has been performing hilarious, and often nerdy, songs since the mid-90s. You can find a ton of the group’s music on that YouTube thing.
“The best way to wrap up two days of epic entertainment is with an epic rock concert–and few bands fit the bill like Tenacious D,” said Mike Morhaime, CEO and cofounder of Blizzard Entertainment. “We’re looking forward to a great show and can’t wait to see what Jack and Kyle have in store for everyone attending BlizzCon and watching from home.”
Could we see an epic duo of Tenacious D & The Artists Formerly Known as Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain? Perhaps a rock-off? One could only hope.
Lore Hounds Juggynaut, iTZKooPA and Mordil will be at BlizzCon 2010. The rest of the crew will be updating the site live throughout the show. BlizzCon 2010 takes place October 22-23. That’s under two weeks away!
