Fans will get the chance to watch and hear the hit TV show on an epic scale
HBO has announced a series of Game of Thrones concerts in the US.
The live shows will feature a full orchestra and choir conducted by composer Ramin Djawadi accompanied by visuals from the hit television series.
The concerts promise to “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.”
In a statement, the show’s executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said: “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.”
The tour will kick off in Kansas City in February next year and will include stops in 28 cities including New York’s Maidson Square Garden and the Los Angeles Forum.
HBO confirmed last month that the next season of Game of Thrones will be the show’s penultimate.
Meanwhile, more of George R.R. Martin’s works are set to be adapted for television.
The author’s sci-fi comic book series Wild Cards will be turned to a TV show by Universal Cable Productions, the network that is home to Mr. Robot, Suits and Law & Order.
