Game of Thrones set to tour with live concert

The sights and sounds of Games of Thrones will be brought to life for a new concert tour.

The show's composer Ramin Djawadi  announced the tour of 28 US cities at a fan event in Los Angeles on Monday.

He said state-of-the-art technology would be used to take fans on a journey through the Seven Kingdoms.

Featuring a full orchestra and choir, scenes from the hit HBO show will be broadcast for fans on large screens.

Game of Thrones producers have promised "eye-popping, ear-splitting, phantasmagoric blend of the show's visuals and Ramin's powerful compositions".

Djawadi said: "I wanted something that takes you beyond just watching an orchestra play.

"I wanted to have an immersive experience.

"I think it will be very exciting and very interesting for the audience to not only hear the music again and have the music experience but also to actually see actual players perform with these instruments that they may not even know what they look like."

The first show will be next February in Kansas City.

The show, based on the books of George RR Martin, returns for its seventh series next year, its penultimate before the final eighth season.

It has been a revelation for the Northern Ireland film industry with historic Northern Ireland locations attracting the show's fans from across the world.


Game of Thrones to finish after end of eighth series, says HBO 

Does end of Game of Thrones sound death knell for Northern Ireland film industry or is it game on?
