The Game of Thrones theme tune is undoubtedly one of the most recognisable in TV history and now, fans have the chance to see it performed live in concert! Here's a quick preview video to give you a taste of what to expect!
Earlier this year, Game of Thrones made a musical announcement that come 2017, the series' orchestra led by composer Ramin Djawadi, will be making a tour of North America. This is hugely exciting news, as the hit HBO show changed the face of television as we know it for one simple reason: its opening credits. You may feel we're being over dramatic, but it's not every day that a hit series is given an entire immersive concert dedicated solely to its soundtrack. Djawadi himself was able to speak with Vulture about the performance, and from the looks of this preview, it will be as impressive as the show itself. The main stage has been named King's Landing and it's where the main orchestra and choir will be based. The Winterfell stage is placed opposite, and will feature soloists and another choir. The two 'Kingdoms' will be connected by a runway so that musicians and Djawadi himself can move around.
One of the most impressive aspects of this highly anticipated Game of Thrones concert is of course it's LED screens, which as you can see, will allow the audience to be treated to scenes from the show to match the music that's being played. There could even be a few surprises during the concert as Djawadi explained, "I'm going through the music to adapt it more for a live performance, and I might have a vocalist on a piece that didn't have one before, or lengthen another piece. I'm not bound to the picture anymore, so I can let the music tell its own story, and be creative about it." The composer may have his work cut out for him even after the series has come to an end, as a spinoff is reportedly on the table, according the HBO boss Casey Bloys.
