Winter is coming – to select venues across North America.  

Live Nation has partnered with HBO Global for a sweeping, immersive Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, featuring live music and scenes from the Emmy Award- and Golden Global Award-winning show. Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi will lead a full orchestra, choir and musical solo performances across 28 cities next year, including dates at Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Forum in Los Angeles.

"For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music's force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness," said Game of Thrones creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. "The 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."

To achieve an all-senses experience, the show will use state-of-the-art technology to project kingdoms of Westeros from King's Landing to Winterfell to The Wall, transporting the audience to the mystical realms based on author George R.R. Martin's epic 'A Song of Fire and Ice' series. The tour is slated to begin on February 15th, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri. Tickets will go on sale this week, starting Saturday August 13th at Live Nation's website.
