Sure, there have been several concerts over the past few years that have been themed around “Game of Thrones,” but we’re not quite sure that there has been one quite like the one now being planned.
Per Entertainment Weekly, it was announced earlier this week that early next year, will be “an immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before. 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 realm – 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.” Basically, it is one of the cooler events that we’ve ever seen themed around the show. We do know that there is something great that comes with being in the room and actually hearing the wall-to-wall sound. It’s certainly a different feeling than just watching it on TV.
In a statement, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss passed along the following message:
“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness … 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.”
Per the website, the full list of dates for the performances (which are a collaboration with Live Nation) are below. This could be a great compliment as you await the upcoming seventh season of the show, which is going to start filming later this year. Due to the desire by the producers for more wintry conditions (hey, the White Walkers are now on the march), they are waiting a little longer to start production than usual. In turn, the premiere date has been pushed to summer of next year. The concert tour should be over for at least a couple of months by the time the premiere rolls around.
Rest assured that as soon as the show does start to hand out more information, we’ll have it for you here. We just imagine that they’re going to be rather secretive given their strategy promoting season 6.
