Los Angeles – Earlier this Monday, August 8, organizers of the “Game of Thrones: Live Concert Experience” announced at the Palladium venue that the event would come to 28 American cities starting in February next year.
The announcement featured Isaac Hempstead-Wright, the 17-year-old actor who plays Bran Stark on the TV show, and music composer Ramin Djawadi, who will direct the orchestra and overall event of the newly announced concert tour.
Djawadi is the author of the iconic music featured on the show, most notably the main title sequence melody. The Hans Zimmer-protégée was previously known for his extensive work on film, television, and video games. He has produced the soundtrack for all six seasons of the show.
“Game of Thrones: Live Concert Experience” will feature a live orchestra conducted by Ramin Djawadi, along with an immersive and interactive set of video technology that will showcase new exclusive images and animations produced solely for the tour.
The musicians will perform a selection of music from the HBO show based on the “A Song of Ice and Fire” epic fantasy saga penned by George R.R. Martin.
A breeze of winter between seasons
This event will provide fans with a much-needed fix of Game of Thrones just around the time when the latest installment of the TV adaptation series should be airing.
Moreover, while the TV show will definitely end in its eighth season, the acclaimed author George R.R. Martin has yet to finish and publish the sixth and penultimate title on the book series, “The Winds of Winter”.
Fans have plenty to expect in these upcoming months, as the confirmation of the TV show’s ending also spawned the possibility of a spin-off production, which has been the object of wild and wide speculation.
The stellar score of the show has featured special guest bands to perform songs in the past, so fans should not rule out a surprise appearance at some point of the tour. Moreover, the interactive aspect of the event opens the possibility to introduce “Game of Thrones” actors as guest acts as well. Ramin Djawadi will bring a breeze of winter to 28 cities in the U.S., with venues and dates specified on the list below:
