Fans of Game of Thrones can experience the magic of the HBO fantasy series in an immersive concert experience. The concert is coming to Vancouver’s Rogers Arena (800 Griffiths Way) April 1 2017. Tickets for the tour go on sale beginning this Saturday, Aug. 13 at LiveNation.com.
So what can you expect from this large-scale creation?
According to the press release, the show will highlight the music of Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi. Djawadi, a full orchestra and choir, and a team of visual effects artists will use state-of-the-art technology to “take fans through the Seven Kingdoms.”
From the press release: “As rich as the stories, intrigue and world of Game of Thrones, Ramin’s celebrated music for the show resonated immediately with fans as the meticulously constructed songs underscored the emotional weight of key moments between beloved characters, lent scale to massive battle sequences or brought to life songs referenced in the books. Ramin’s relentlessly popular title track alone has become instantly recognizable as a pop culture phenomenon in its own right. Fan enthusiasm for the music from Game of Thrones continues to grow with each season.”
The tour is produced and promoted by concert promoter Live Nation in partnership with HBO Global Licensing. The tour 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’s previous credits include the Grammy-nominated score for 2008’s Iron Man, as well as Pacific Rim, Clash Of The Titans and Warcraft.
“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” Game of Thrones creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss are quoted as saying in the press release.
“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.”
