Ramin Djawadi on the upcoming Game of Thrones Concert Tour

unspecified-1

During the fan preview of the upcoming Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience tour, composer Ramin Djawadi (above, far right) ecstatically revealed a few details about the one of a kind event with Entertainment Weekly.

The idea of bringing the music of Westeros on tour was born during a studio session with none other than the brilliant minds behind the series: George R.R. Martin, David Benioff, and D.B. Weiss.

Djawadi reveals:

We’ve been working on it for a while. So it just seemed now, after season 6, it was such a fantastic season, so we thought there’s a lot of material now to draw from.

Entertainment Weekly (EW) also describes the conceptual video of the event shown to the media which includes Thrones locations such as King’s Landing and Winterfell, a 360 degree stage, and the Iron Throne itself.

He tells EW:

We really want to summarize the show the best we can. There’s a lot of different locations and events to cover. If you come and watch this concert, you really get a nice summary and a nice look back on the past seasons.

The fan event in Los Angeles also previewed iconic Game of Thrones live music such as the main theme and The Rains of Castamere.

Djawadi revels in the music of the series, the live orchestra, and what he’s most looking forward to playing for fans with Entertainment Weekly!

The symphony tour sounds like a truly unique experience and essential for any Game of Thrones fan. Will you be attending when winter comes?

    2. The ticket sale situation in a bit of a train wreck.

      Right now there is a presale for HBO Friends and Family. I’m on every HBO mailing list including HBO Now, and I haven’t gotten a code.

      Next is the American Express pre sale. Most people don’t have an AE.

      Then the general public. Looks like most fans will have to buy this tickets from Stub Hub for double the price.

      HBO is dropping the ball on this one for their most dedicated fan base.

    3. RESALE PASSWORD is GOTTOUR.

      However, it looks like most of the seats have already sold out or they didn’t release any good ones for the presale.

      What a mess.

      For example there are no floor or lower level seats available already. Only upper level.

    4. The Bastard,

      This is incredibly normal for any concert, sports game, etc.

      In fact, I got an Amex last year specifically to get presale benefits. After digging around online this morning I found the F&F code above, and got seats. It seems only a few sections were up for grabs in these presales, so don’t get discouraged.

    5. My friend misread an article about this and thought it was a GoT musical, like Grease or something. We’ve been entertaining ourselves inventing songs for it. Got a snappy little number called “My name’s Jon Snow and I know nothing” in the works. Gonna have some crowd faves too, based on S6 alone we could have Dany doing “Fire starter”, Mel covering “Losing my religion” and Ramsay and Sansa dueting on “Who let the dogs out?” Oh f**k whyyyy did I starve them? remix ?

      JCDavis,

      Seven hells, yes!I will be at the show in Portland.I was so excited when I read about this last night that I could not go to sleep!

      Sweet. Moda Center to top it off. Between now and then we must get the 411 to each other if for no other reason as to show the WotW Unity there. There are more of us as well.

    7. Looking at seats for Detroit. I can’t decide if being right next to the side of the stage would be good or not. It’s the seats they are offering.

      I wonder if sitting that close would not allow me to see the giant tv screens in he middle of the ceiling… Ahhhhh

    8. Lulus Mum,
      Will there also be the High Sparrow’s greatest hit (The Lion Sleeps Tonight) ? And Cersei’s (Killer Queen) ?

      If so, I’m ready to fight Dornish Tyrell to the death for first-row tickets ! ?

    9. Doesn’t the concert dates coincide with the post-production dates of season 7? Assuming he composes and records the music during post, does it mean he won’t be back for S7? (a la the costume designer who took some time off for S6).. If he won’t be back fo S7 it’ll be sad 🙁

    10. A Dornish Tyrell, ACME,
      Glad you like it! We’re gonna do it as a thing that really is for the fans, rather than to generate money/publicity/whatever. I’m thinking an intimate setting: my settee – comfy, sits four, plenty of free cat hair – and get a long list of suitable songs, with people voting for what they want to see on the day. We can watch my GoT dvds on the tv to make it a fully immersive experience. If anyone can play an instrument they can bring it along and join in; bagsy do either tambourine or triangle (or both) 😀

    11. For those of us who have to wait until Sat. to purchase tickets do you think there will be plenty of good seats left? I don’t know just how many friends and family HBO has lol. Also how quickly do we expect them to sell out? I mean, the event isn’t until next year but something tell me it’s going to sell out fast at some venues and you can’t predict which ones. Not sure how big is the United center.

    12. WiC posted the promo code earlier today, so luckily I was able to grab some lower level tickets for the Philly concert before decent seats became scarce. For where I’ll be sitting, the price wasn’t bad at all (80 bucks). I just had a major surgery, so I’m justifying this as a present to myself. Hell, I don’t need to justify it…it’s a night of live Thrones music, with Ramin conducting! And my first GoT related event that I’ll actually be able to get to for once. So excited for this, and the interactive stage sounds amazing. Wish I could’ve afforded the $500 floor seats, which included a meet and greet with Ramin, but oh well!

    13. I wish they could take this for a European tour!!!!! I love going to concerts, though I’ve never been on one with such a kind of music – it would be an excellent experience! Oh, well.:/

      That said, I hope I’m not too late to join you guys for….

      ….the fab Lulus Mum GoT musical!!! I’ll bring lots more of free cat-hair and A Dornish Tyrell I’ll get my air bass – or air drums maybe, to add to the momentum? OK, on second thought, I’ll stick to the triangle, the other options even if airy, can still potentially be dangerous for your hearing abilities! 😀

    14. SiriuslyStark,
      All are welcome! Just need to know numbers in advance so I can get in some nibbles and stuff, plus any special requirements/requests. I saw Soundgarden about 25 years ago and there was lots of air guitar going on (in the audience rather than on stage). One guy was so awesome I swear he did air tuning, had air roadies and put his foot up on an air monitor. There is even an air guitar world championships in Finland so you and A Dornish Tyrell should definitely keep practicing! 😀

    15. I was able to snag great pre sale tickets for 97 each (plus fees) with my Amex cardholder presale. So excited for when they come to Phoenix in March!

      Would love one of those floor seats but I’m not rich as a Lannister.

    16. I tried to buy tickets last night and couldn’t but still tonight it says “We’ll be back soon…
      (You just caught us in the middle of routine maintenance.) Won’t let me purchase. How can it be down for maintenance 24 hours?
