VH1 Classic To Present First-Ever Official Comic-Con Attendee Welcome Party "Dawn Of The Con"

Rob Zombie to Host Night Filled with Metal and More at San Diego's Petco Park

Free and Open Exclusively to All Comic-Con Badge-Holding Attendees on Thursday, July 12, 5:30 - 11PM PT

NEW YORK, June 20, 2012 -- VH1 Classic will present the first-ever official Comic-Con Opening Night Attendee Welcome Party, "Dawn of the Con," on Thursday, July 12, 5:30 - 11PM PT. VH1 Classic will take over San Diego's Petco Park to ring in Comic-Con in true rocker fashion. The night's festivities will be hosted by hard-rock icon and celebrated filmmaker Rob Zombie, and live music will be spun by DJ Will from VH1 Classic's That Metal Show.

"Dawn of the Con" promises to be a night full of fantasy, science fiction, monsters and heavy metal. The night will be jam-packed with activities including: a digital photo area where you can pose next to the drag racer from Rob Zombie's video "Dragula," hourly limited-edition giveaways of one-of-a-kind illustrated collectible posters, and a T-shirt bar where attendees can choose from different limited-edition custom shirt designs and have them pressed on the spot. Additionally, partygoers will get numerous sneak peeks from Zombie, including a preview of his new music project, to be released August 7th featuring unique remixes of Rob Zombie's classic hits by today's top DJ talent.

"VH1 Classic is thrilled to be hosting the first-ever official Comic-Con welcome party for the fans and attendees of Comic-Con," said Nigel Cox-Hagan, Executive Vice President, Creative and Consumer Marketing at VH1. "'Dawn of the Con' is the coming together of two cultural curators - VH1 Classic and Comic-Con - two brands that embrace, honor and are passionate about classic pop culture. This party will set the stage for a great convention."

"We're very excited that VH1 Classic has created this event exclusively for the Comic-Con attendees," said David Glanzer, director of marketing and public relations for the non-profit event. "We know it will be a fantastic kick off to our best convention yet!"

VH1 Classic brings you the best metal, rock, soul and pop from the '70s, '80s and '90s. The channel features the gods of rock - from Black Sabbath, Metallica and Iron Maiden to Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam and Dire Straits - in marquee concerts and music specials, and of course, tons of classic music videos. Recent big events include National Metal Day (11.11.11) and Metal Evolution, an 11-part documentary series on the history of metal. Because when it comes down to it - all music should go to 11.
