Tenacious D Set to Rock Out BlizzCon

Posted Tue, Oct 12, 2010 by Martuk

Most gamers are familiar with Jack Black and his constant interaction with the gaming community in everything from the Spike TV's Video Game Awards to movies and even the comical video game, Brutal Legends, in which Black voiced the main character. But Jack Black has also been part of a musical duo with Kyle Gass known to people the world over as Tenacious D. The visionary band has appeared in cameos for past movies such as the disastrously bad BioDome, starring Pauly Shore and Stephen Baldwin and in retrospect, the brief cameo by Tenacious D may have been the highlight of that movie. But the duo later landed their own film, Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny, and released their own musical albums. Tenacious D has in turn developed a bit of a cult following and the duo will be rocking out fans at this year's BlizzCon.

Blizzard Entertainment, Inc. today announced that the greatest band in the world*, Tenacious D, will perform at the closing concert during this year’s sold-out BlizzCon®. Taking place October 22-23 at the Anaheim Convention Center, BlizzCon is a celebration of the global player communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment’s Warcraft®, Diablo®, and StarCraft® game universes. While tickets to the convention are currently sold out, viewers can watch at home by ordering a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, offering over 50 hours of event coverage (including Tenacious D’s performance) globally over the Internet and also on DIRECTV® in the United States.
