Well, BlizzCon just got a whole lot weirder. Blizzard has announced the closing act for the 2016 edition of their very own Con and it's none other than weird Al! While most know him from his classics like Eat it and Like a Surgeon, my personal favorite is the theme from Spy Hard!

The Grammy Award–winning pop parodist will be taking the stage the evening of Saturday, November 5, to provide an epic send-off for everyone celebrating this year’s convention. If you didn’t score tickets to the show, Blizzard gamers and Weird Al fans around the world can still get a front row seat at home with the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket.

BlizzCon is the biggest Blizzard party of the year, packed with in-depth developer panels, intense esports tournaments, the legendary Friday night contests, and what’s sure to be an epic finale from Weird Al.

The Virtual Ticket lets you watch the action online, live and in high definition. You’ll also be able to watch most of the concert in on-demand videos that will be available within a few days after the show, although some portions may be edited or unavailable. For the best experience, be sure to watch it live!

Order a Virtual Ticket and you’ll also receive a treasure trove of in-game goodies for World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, Heroes of the Storm, and Overwatch.

Check out the press release for more information on this year’s closing concert featuring Weird Al. And get ready for an evening of mandatory fun—we’ll see you at the show!

      What announcements can we expect at this year's BlizzCon?
      World of Warcraft
      Even though Patch 7.1 is quite fresh and Trial of Valor opens next week, we will find out what's coming, perhaps Patch 7.2? New content, raids and the story revolving around Iliidan?
      Diablo III
      This one's quite high on the expectations list. Season 8 launched with no content changes. With the Necromancer fan art leaks and the anniversary celebration, we are likely going to see a new expansion. If we get a new class I assume we will also get a new expansion. We got Crusaders with the launch of Reaper of Souls, right? To keep the game fresh, there absolutely needs to be an announcement of some sort.
      Heroes of the Storm
      With no Hero announcements after Samuro, we will definitely see some new Heroes. My bets are on Varian and even Malthael given the Diablo's anniversary celebration. I think we'll also see new maps, maybe a Haunted Mines overhaul or even new features added to the game, like Clans. 
      Overwatch
      We'll see Sombra and possibly new Heroes and maps.
      Hearthstone
      Hearthstone's fourth expansion is expected to be announced at BlizzCon.
      Rest assured, we'll be covering every panel. Stay tuned and share your thoughts in the comments below!
