This just in: The hottest concert tour of 2017 isn’t Lady Gaga or Eminem or U2 (assuming their respective rumored albums actually drop before then). Nope, it’s actually ... Game of Thrones?!
The hit fantasy HBO series will make the leap from screen to stage next year for Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, which sounds just as epic as you’d imagine. Billed as an “immersive music and visual experience,” the arena tour will combine a full orchestra, a choir, and high-tech visuals, including a 360-degree stage, LED telescoping, and special 3-D designs, according to Billboard.
As for the music itself, expect to hear the show’s most memorable songs (fingers crossed for Season 6's “Light of the Seven”!) from composer Ramin Djawadi, who will conduct an 80-piece orchestra and chorus. The performances will also include visual footage, some lifted from the show and others created exclusively for the concert tour. Who knows? Maybe we’ll even get a dragon.
The Game of Thrones concert tour kicks off next February (just one winter away!). See the full list of tour dates below.
