I guess when you’re making $175 a head, you can afford to splurge on festivities entertainment. Seems almost like a waste of money since tickets for Blizzcon already sold out in May. They could have booked Har Mar Superstar to play the ‘Con and no one would think any less of them.
You know what, good on Blizzard. Getting the Foo was probably unnecessary from a business perspective, but going that extra step in delighting their fans only serves to bolster their legendary brand loyalty.
“We’re pretty sure that in the future, music historians will look back at BlizzCon 2011 as the unquestionable pinnacle of Foo Fighters’ long and illustrious career,” said Foo Fighters lead Dave Grohl in the announcement. “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.”
