What is Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience
The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is a concert tour produced and featured by the Game of Thrones soundtrack composer, Ramin Djawadi. The first tour started in Minnesota on February 20, 2017 and was called, “Music is Coming”.

The tour is a live concert of music from the beloved show done by a 80-piece orchestra and choir and conducted by the composer. In addition to the music the stage was set as a 360-degree stage, while special video clips that were related to the music, were displayed on extremely large LED telescoping and wall screens. This was accompanied by special 3D designs that rose from the stage floor at key moments like, the north Weirwood tree and more. There were also music instruments that were created especially for this production such as the 14-foot Wildling horn. The horn was played while the large screens displayed the Wildlings attack the Wall.
There were multiple stages set up for this concert that were organized as locations from Westeros. The main stage was King’s Landing and held the orchestra and the choir as well as Djawadi (the conductor). On one side of the King’s Landing stage was the Winterfell stage. That stage help additional choir and soloists. There were additional four other, smaller stages.
When the concert first started its tour, the show was between its sixth to seventh season. Now, after 3 tour legs were already completed with high positive reviews, the show finished its eighth and final season. Therefore, the new tour will hold music sections that weren’t played before, including the nine minutes theme: “The Night King”.i
