Nothing feels quite like a Sunday night where the Game of Thrones main title theme introduces you to a brand new episode, but with Season 8 not arriving until 2019, that feeling won't return for a hot minute. Luckily for you, HBO and Live Nation partnered up to put on a Game of Thrones live concert experience featuring classic music from the beloved fantasy series. In this interactive experience combining both sonic and visual elements, you hear all of the most famous songs from the Game of Thrones score, including "The Rains of Castamere" and "Light of the Seven", performed by a live orchestra. A remarkable team of musicians and designers teamed up to put on a performance lauded by critics and audiences for its ingenuity and amazing music.
For a limited time, you can see the lands of Westeros and Essos in a brand new medium, one that combines dazzling technical effects with orchestral melodies. Tickets are still available, but the tour is nearing its conclusion. With no guarantee this tour will happen again, this may be a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy GoT like never before. Winter is coming, but not for another year-and-a-half at least, so until then, tide yourself over with this remarkable Game of Thrones concert experience.

Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi lies at the center of the experience as the lead conductor of an 80-piece orchestra. While Djawadi leads the show, he refuses to let his musicians have all the fun. He steps away from the conductor's stand to play a piano rendition of "Light of the Seven." The song first premiered in the season six finale "The Winds of Winter" and turned into an instant classic among the fanbase.
If you don't want to miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you need to act quickly. The North American tour ends on Oct. 14th in Toronto, and so far no future performances lay on the horizon. Tickets are still available, but who knows how quickly they may sell out, especially during the final weeks. Hopefully the success of this tour will spur HBO into funding another musical experience in the near future, perhaps after the debut of the final season of Game of Thrones. You hear that, HBO? Keep this show on the road!
Though billed as a concert, this performance goes far beyond a merely sonic experience. In tandem with the orchestra, set pieces and massive digital screens combine together to display various scenes from the show, often engulfing the performers themselves. The whole experience guides you through six seasons of Game of Thrones, covering all the major characters and their story arcs. For Djawadi, he views this as his chance to adapt Game of Thrones in his own unique way. “I’m not bound to the picture anymore, so I can let the music tell its own story, and be creative about it.”
The story of Game of Thrones takes a great deal of time to tell, so why would the live concert cut any corners? The performance clocks in at an amazing two-and-a-half hours long performance that aims to show the world Game of Thrones in a brand new light. The music, set pieces, and tour took three years of preparation involving hundreds of professionals and creatives from all walks of life, so you owe them a bit of patience.
