Music fans and ‘Game of Thrones’ fans rejoice — there is something new and exciting coming your way. While winter is well over in Southern California, you’ll still want to brace yourself for an exciting and one of a kind musical experience.
Thanks to Live Nation and HBO, the ‘Game of Thrones’ world will come to life in an immersive concert experience featuring an orchestra, choir and musical soloists performing scores from the popular television show based off of “A Song of Fire and Ice” book series by George R.R. Martin. Live music, sound effects and complex visuals collide to depict battles and key elements of the show’s many realms.
Each performance uses state of the art technology to bring the fantastical seven kingdoms to life in a breathtaking visual spectacle. From dragon screeches, to fiery scenes and popular quotes from the show, the ‘Game of Thrones’ Concert Series cuts no corners when it comes to constructing an all inclusive performance.
Through production effects and video technology, the concert recreates kingdoms seen in the show from Westerns to Essos.
The show is three years in the making, bringing together audio and visual elements to depict a grand and accurate portrayal of the show, scored by composer Ramin Djawdi.
Djawdi’s music is an important part of what makes the show so unique. Each of his scores adds texture and depth to an already riveting show. Djawdi was recently a guest on NPR’s morning segment where he discussed inspiration and excitement for the upcoming tour. The segment revealed details about Djawdi’s process creating the ‘Game of Thrones’ theme song, an odd “no flute rule” and Djawdi’s inspiration for composing and scoring.
The show is produced exclusively by Live Nation with HBO Global Licensing. The tour starts in late February and will continue through May. On its way across the states, Game of Thrones’ Concert Series will stop in Los Angeles (the only Southern California date) on March 23 at The Forum. Tickets can be purchased at livenation.com and range from $40 to $125 plus service fees.
‘Game Of Thrones’ will go into its seventh and final season sometime this year. Anticipation for the show’s wrap up and musical score is huge.
