Kanye West booked for 'Call of Duty' gig
Wednesday 24 August 2011
Set to be his first public performance since the debut of
Watch The Throne, the September 2-3 Call of Duty XP weekend festival will be closed out by Kanye West.
Call of Duty XP is Activision's laser-focused Los Angeles fan event for Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3, which doesn't see release until November 8.
Among the attractions are games Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, World at War and Black Ops, and a $1 million prize tournament using Modern Warfare 3 itself.
The Call of Duty franchise has set and broken sales records for several years in a row, though this year faces a fresh challenge as Battlefield 3 looks to take a piece of the pie.
Kanye West's song "Power" has already been used to soundtrack trailers for Forza Motorsport 4 and Saints Row: The Third.
