Blizzard also introduced this in the PTR Development Notes for this build and want help testing it out!

The concert takes place in an area with lots of Undead NPCs called the Cauldron of Rock. The Cauldron of Rock has a spooky stage and is surrounded by gravestones.

Some of the lines of this broadcast text refers to
Michael Jackson's Thriller
. "Another soul for getting down" "Though you fight to stay alive, your bodies freeze and shatter!" "Darkness falls across the land, the rocking hour is close at hand!" "Grisly ghouls from every tomb are closing in to seal your doom" are variations of lines found in Vincent Price's epilogue of the song:
Darkness falls across the land
The midnight hour is close at hand
Creatures crawl in search of blood
To terrorize y'awl's neighborhood
And whosoever shall be found
Without the soul for getting down
Must stand and face the hounds of hell
And rot inside a corpse's shell
The foulest stench is in the air
The funk of forty thousand years
And grizzly ghouls from every tomb
Are closing in to seal your doom
And though you fight to stay alive
Your body starts to shiver
For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller
