‘Game of Thrones’ Live Concert Tour to Begin Next Year, Showcasing the Musical Stylings of Ramin Djawadi

Be careful if you hear the first few notes of "The Rains of Castamere."

Winter is finally here, as is the news that “Game of Thrones” is coming to an end after its eighth and final season. Anyone familiar with Ramin Djawadi’s musical compositions is likely to miss his contributions to the high-fantasy drama almost as much as Tyrion Lannister’s musings or Khaleesi’s dragons, especially after this summer’s stunning season-six finale. Beginning next February, viewers will have a chance to experience the show’s music as part of the Game of Thrones Live Concert Tour. Imagery from the show will blend with a full orchestra and choir as part of the performances — just make sure there are emergency exits if and when you hear the first few notes of “The Rains of Castamere.”

“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music’s force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” said “Thrones” creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss in a statement. “The GoT 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. We are more excited for it than anyone.”
