Winter has come to Westeros on Game of Thrones, and that means the new season of the blockbuster HBO show will likely be filming—and airing—later than usual. But to hold you over, the show is going on a nationwide tour, and it looks like it will be epic.
The show's composer, Ramin Djawadi, will use a full orchestra and choir to showcase the music from the series. The live show will use footage from TV episodes as well as brand-new imagery "that will recreate the various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos," according to the announcement.
"For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music's force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness," Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss said in a press release. "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."
The show will hit 28 cities across North America, and tickets go on sale on Saturday, August 13 at livenation.com. If you have an American Express card, you can preorder tickets starting Wednesday, August 10. See the full list of tour dates below:
