Rob Zombie Tapped To Host The First Ever “Dawn Of The Con”

Each year, it seems horror gets a bigger presence at SDCC.  Well this year seems like we horror fanatics just may be taking over.  You may have heard the Con Of The Dead event announced roughly a month ago by our friends over at Dread Central.  If you haven’t, check out the announcement here.

Now, word has come through that Rob Zombie will be taking over San Diego’s Petco Park with the first ever Official Comic Con Opening Night Attendee Welcome Party.  “Dawn Of The Con” will take place on Thursday July 12th, 5:30pm – 11:00pm.

The VH1 presented event will promise a night full of fantasy, science fiction, monsters and heavy metal for all Comic-Con attendees.  Plus, those in attendance will get a sneak peek of his new remix album MONDO SEX HEAD set for release in August.

The Walking Dead Escape is also taking place at Petco Park this year.

If any of these deadcentric events sound like your cup of tea, start making your plans now.  It’s sure to be a mad house!
