Game Of Thrones megafans already have a wealth of licensed paraphernalia to spend their money on – and now they’re getting their very own ‘concert experience’ tour.
The official Game Of Thrones Live Concert Experience has just been announced by Live Nation, promising ‘an immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before’.
Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will be joined by a full orchestra and choir on the tour, which will visit Madison Square Garden, The Los Angeles Forum and 26 other venues.
A high-end production with team with video technology will recreate the show’s various realms – ‘from King’s Landing to Winterfell, along the northern stretches of the Kingsroad to The Wall and across the Narrow Sea to Braavos, Meereen and beyond’.
Footage from the show will be shown, in addition to all new imagery created exclusively for the tour.
“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,” says Ramin Djawadi.
“By combining the music with state-of-the-art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of westeros to fans.”
