‘Music is Coming’ epic Game of Thrones concert tour announced
Game of Thrones will be going on an epic concert tour across the U.S. in 2017. The tour was announced today in Hollywood with the USC Marching Band strolling down Sunset Blvd, performing the theme song (LAist.com) until finally arriving at the Palladium theatre for the special event. Composer Ramin Djawadi and actor Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran Stark) made an appearance to announce the tour. Fans at today’s event were able to interact with the Hall of Faces, sit on the iron throne, and get a preview of what’s to come.
The show promises to 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.”
“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” said Thrones 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.”
We’ve experience live orchestral concerts before such as music from video games like Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy, but to watch the composer conduct his music live is something extra special. The tour starts February 15, 2017, in Kansas City and runs through April 2, 2017. Existing scenes from the show along with new content will be unleashed. The tour wraps up just before Game of Thrones Season 7 to airs in the summer of 2017.
