If you’re one of those people who likes to start humming “Rains of Castamere” when at dinner with the in-laws, or re-watches episodes of Game of Thrones simply to watch the opening theme song … then composer Ramin Djawadi might have something for you.
The Emmy-nominated composer (who also wrote the theme to Westworld) is going on tour early next year, and he’s bringing all the music he’s composed over the past six years for Game of Thrones with him.
Massive concert tours tied to television and movie franchises have become big business in recent years, with Star Trek selling out venues earlier this year around the country to celebrate its 50th anniversary. HBO and Djawadi are hoping for the same as they get ready to embark on a 28-city tour that will criss-cross North America from Montreal to Fort Lauderdale, to Los Angeles and Seattle.
The performances will feature a full orchestra and choir, as well as massive screens that will bring images from the show.
[It] will 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.
The tour kicks off Feb. 15 in Kansas City, where tickets run between $38 and $98. It will then jump to a new city almost every other day making a final stop at the Moda Center in Portland on April 2.
Other stops include Madison Square Garden in New York City as well as the Forum in Los Angeles. The three Canadian stops will be at the Bell Centre in Montreal on March 3, the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on March 4, and Rogers Arena in Vancouver on April 1.
Djawadi announced the tour Wednesday on the Game of Thrones Facebook page, releasing a video that showcases how the stage will be set up at each venue.
Tickets, schedule and locations are available at TicketMaster.
