Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience to debut in 2017
HBO and Live Nation have announced today that fans will be able to travel to the world of Westeros like never before with their Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, which will begin its North American tour in 2017. Using state-of-the-art technology, Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi, along with a full orchestra and choir, will take fans on a musical journey through the Seven Kingdoms.
“For the past six seasons of Game of Thrones, I have been tremendously inspired to compose music to David Benioff’s and D.B. Weiss’ extraordinary adaption of George R.R. Martin’s epic ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’ series,” Djawadi said.”Now, by combining the music with state-of-the-art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of Westeros to fans in a live and unique concert experience.”
“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” said Game of Thrones creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. “The GoT Concert Experience will be unique in the history of concert tours, an eye-popping, ear-splitting, phantasmagoric blend of the show’s visuals and Ramin’s powerful compositions. We are more excited for it than anyone.”
During the performance, fans will see the various realms found in Westeros and Essos featuring footage from the series and all-new visuals created for the tour. The show will begin its 28-city tour on Wednesday, February 15, 2017 in Kansas City, Mo., and will continue across America and Canada setting up at famed live music venues including Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Forum in Los Angeles as well as arenas in Montreal, Boston, Houston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia, Washington DC and more.
Tickets go on sale starting Saturday, August 13 at LiveNation.com. American Express Card Members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, August 10 at 10:00 a.m. through Friday, August 12 at 10:00 p.m.
Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal. The show will return for its seventh season next summer. You can check out a piece of concept art for the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience set-up below.
