Westeros is (somehow) about to get even more epic, because next year you’ll be able to see Game of Thrones live in concert. Produced by Live Nation, the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience will be a “music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before.” 28 North American cities will be swallowed whole by the march of musicians, all led by composer Ramin Djawadi.
In an interview with Variety, Djawadi explained how it snowballed out of a daydreamy conversation with show creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss.
DJAWADI: “We were in the studio together reviewing some music and one of them said, ‘I would love to see this live. I want to full orchestra. I want to see a choir.’ So we went from there.”
What audiences will be getting is well-deserving of the Westeros brand: LED screens and special stage designs with pretty radical concept art, as you can see by the magnificence above.
DJAWADI: “We designed a stage that will be 360 degrees. There won’t be a bad seat in the house.”
The surreal tour begins wreaking havoc next February in Kansas City. Tickets go on sale on Saturday. The best part of this Game of Thrones tour will be the guarantee that your favorite character won’t die.
