Muse is BlizzCon 2017's Musical Guest

Muse will Plug In (Baby) to close out this year's BlizzCon.


Blizzard has brought together some of music's finest acts for its annual BlizzCon event. After going in a slightly different direction last year with Weird Al Yankovic, it looks like BlizzCon is returning to rock by bringing in Muse.

"We're thrilled to close out our 11th BlizzCon with a performance from one of rock's greatest live acts," Blizzard CEO and co-founder Mike Morhaime said via press release. "Muse has wowed millions of people around the world with their groundbreaking music, and we're excited that they're coming to give BlizzCon attendees an epic sendoff."

Muse may not have a specific Blizzard connection, but they are certainly no stranger to working with partner company Activision. The band has contributed several of their hit songs towards the Guitar Hero franchise, with lead singer Matt Bellamy even offering his likeness for Guitar Hero 5.

Those who can't make it to BlizzCon, but still want to catch the live Muse performance will be able to do so through the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket. Muse's live set is scheduled to close out BlizzCon on November 4, with the convention set to begin on Friday, November 3. The schedule for the weekend is out now, which can be found here.
