There's no better way to close out your weekend than to have Metallica assault you with heavy metal, and that's exactly what will happen at this year's BlizzCon in Anaheim, Calif.

The metal icons have signed on to headline the closing ceremonies of this year's gaming convention on Nov. 8 at the Anaheim Convention Center.

Metallica stated in their announcement, "BlizzCon is on! The annual gathering of those around the globe who are part of the gaming communities surrounding Blizzard Entertainment’s huge games Warcraft, Diablo, and StarCraft is taking place in Anaheim, Calif. and lucky for us, they have invited us to their party. On Saturday, Nov. 8, we’ll be closing out the two-day celebration by hitting the stage in Anaheim, Calif. at the convention center and are excited that we'll be rocking with our friends in the gaming world."

If you're unable to get to Anaheim for the convention, you can still catch Metallica rocking out. There's a BlizzCon Virtual Ticket that will give you access all weekend long to the festival's main activities. You can purchase that here. And, if you have DIRECTV, there's also a BlizzCon Pay Per View event. Details can be found here.
