British alt rock band Muse will close out BlizzCon 2017

Blizzard’s going old school once again with its band selection for this year’s BlizzCon: UK alt rock band Muse. Here’s the spiel:

“Widely renowned as one of the best live acts in the world, Muse—Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard, and Chris Wolstenholme—have won numerous music awards, including two Grammy Awards, an American Music Award, five MTV Europe Music Awards, two Brit Awards, six NME Awards, and six Q Awards. Since forming in 1994, Muse have released seven studio albums, selling more than 20 million copies worldwide. Their latest album, Drones, debuted at #1 in 21 countries around the world and scored the band their first #1 album in the United States—along with an award for Best Rock Album at the 2016 Grammy Awards.”

Both in-person and virtual ticket holders will be able to watch the concert. Past acts at the show include Blink-182, Metallica, the Foo Fighters, Tenacious D, Linkin Park, and last year, Weird Al. Lob your “at least it’s not Blink-182” jokes at the comments below.

Great for blizzcon,seems like muse’s target audience. On a personal note I find their sound rather annoying and really wanky.

I am not much of a fan of Blizzard or WoW but I would be tempted to go for Muse alone .

Why not go the whole hog and have Morris dancing, mud wrestling and some interpretive dance?

The hysteria of Blizzcon seems to get worse each year.

I might actually buy a virtual ticket for once, just for the band alone.

Even though I usually find the v. ticket silly – this band, with some of the development focused panels is making me think otherwise this year.

Seems appropriate enough for Blizzcon, and I happen to like them for a change.

Pretty good band.

And personally a welcome change up.
