Video game commentary will be done by Nugget Bridge's Scott Glaza (Scott), Evan Latt (plaid) and Duy Ha (Duy). Joining them is Youtube superstar Justin Flynn (TheJustinFlynn)! TCG commentary is handled by Josue Rojano (Crimz), Josh Wittenkeller (TheJWittz), Dylan Mayo (Exobyte) and Kyle Sucevich (Pooka).

This is also the first stop for the Pokemon Orchestral Concert Tour: http://www.pokemon.com/us/pokemon-news/pokemon-orchestral-concert-tour-announced/
At last year's opening ceremony they revealed Mega Kangaskhan. Maybe they'll show something new this year as well.
