The show’s composer Ramin Djawadi will bring a full orchestra and choir across North America to recreate the show’s score for the “‘Game of Thrones’ Live Concert Experience.”
According to a press release, the concert, which is produced by Live Nation, “will use innovative music tour production and video technology that will recreate the various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos as well as showcase footage from the show in addition to all new imagery created exclusively for the tour.”
Djawadi also disclosed that some of the show’s most popular scenes will go out on big screens at the same time.
“I wanted something that takes you beyond just watching an orchestra play with things happening onstage that will enhance the musical experience,” he said.
The tour begins on 15 Feb 2017 in Kansas City, before taking in arenas and venues such as Madison Square Garden in New York, until May.
