Update: Read our recap of the Live Concert Experience.
When Ramin Djawadi, composer for HBO's hit series Game of Thrones, announced this past August that he would be taking the show's music on tour, he described the upcoming live concerts as immersive experiences. He wasn't joking.
Kansas City will be the first stop on the tour which begins Feb. 15, 2017. The tour will make 28 stops across the U.S. and Canada. Djawadi will conduct an 80-piece orchestra and choir in the round. Walls of LED screens and other 3D designs will rise from the stage floor. This experience looks epic, just like the television show.
Here's a teaser video of the upcoming tour.
Fans of the television show will be treated to an immersive experience for sure.
