‘Game of Thrones’ Live Concert Tour Coming in 2017

game of thrones 2016 emmys nominations

Live Nation announced the 28-city “Game of Thrones” Live Concert Experience on Monday at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles. The show, based on music from the hit HBO show, is described as a “music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before.”
The USC marching band kicked off the event, marching through the streets of Hollywood while playing the “GoT’ theme, to the delight of the hundreds of fans and to the chagrin of cars in traffic.
Inside the venue, Bran Stark himself, Isaac Hempstead Wright, introduced “Game of Thrones” composer and tour mastermind Ramin Djawadi.

Djawadi explained the idea for the tour came from the TV show’s creators. “We were in the studio together reviewing some music and one of them said, ‘I would love to see this live. I want to full orchestra. I want to see a choir.’ So we went from there.”
The experience will be a blend of LED screens and special stage designs. Concept art for the stage (see below) shows a giant screen flanked by flaming towers that house the choir and orchestra. But Djawadi promises it will be even more impressive in person. “We designed a stage that will be 360 degrees. There won’t be a bad seat in the house.”
As for the music itself, Djawadi said the playlist would include fan favorites including, “Mhysa,” “The Children,” and “Light of the Seven.”
The tour kicks off next February in Kansas City and will hit 28 cities, including Los Angeles, New York City and Las Vegas. Three shows in Canada are also planned. Tickets go on sale on Live Nation on August 13.
With the “Game of Thrones” Season 7 premiere a year away, the concert will be one way fans can get their “Game of Thrones” fix.

Someone is leaking the plot of every new ‘Game of Thrones’ episode — and HBO is trying its best to stop it

Helen Sloan/HBOWarning: Spoilers ahead for “Game of Thrones” season six. The internet is darker and more full of spoilers than ever these days — and “Game of Thrones” is no exception. But the problem that has arisen in the last several weeks has nothing to do with spoiler-filled discussions of the episodes after they air. A man known as the “Spanish Spoiler” is uploading videos to YouTube in which he details the entire plot of the upcoming week’s episode. But he’s doing it two full days before HBO airs the show. In each video description, the mysterious YouTuber writes the following disclaimer (roughly translated using Google): I cannot put spoilers for the 3rd episode of the 6th season of Game of Thrones, because HBO forbids it. But we can always count predictions, theories, and make analysis of what will happen. And who knows, maybe guess everything. Nothing about the Spanish Spoiler’s descriptions is guesswork. Multiple plot details were revealed to be accurate for the first two ep…

There’s a new heir to the Iron Throne, and nobody on ‘Game of Thrones’ noticed

Tommen has a new successor. Good luck getting anyone in King’s Landing to care, apparently. Caution! Spoilers immediately ahead for Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 2, ‘Home.’ Go watch it, it’s a really good one.  The body count in Westeros is really starting to pile up — and the return of oneresurrected Lord Commander doesn’t begin to make a dent in the numbers. In Season 6’s first two episodes, three of the Seven Kingdoms’ most powerful leaders have been usurped and unceremoniously tossed on the scrap heap: Roose Bolton (along with his wife and hours-old heir), Balon Greyjoy (last of the participants in the War of the Five Kings and the last of the leeches burned in the fire by Melisandre) and Prince Doran Martell of Dorne (that guy in the bathrobe and wheelchair). But the most important death is the one that barely got any attention: the poisoning of Princess Myrcella Baratheon, sister to King Tommen and official heir to the Iron Throne. She was the last Baratheon in Westeros — leg…

Game of Thrones, season 6 episode 2, spoilers: will we find out who Jon Snow’s parents are?

Earlier this week, HBO delivered another tension-filled tease of what we can expect on Monday from TV’s bloodiest drama. The network has released a trailer for episode two of Thrones’s sixth season, which promises to move events on swiftly from the fast-paced season opener that aired in the UK earlier this week. Ramsay Snow, who looked grim as he realised he had savaged ties with potential allies in the north in season six episode one, can be seen making a plan to storm Castle Black in an attempt to restore Sansa Stark, his reluctant wife, to Winterfell. Meanwhile, Arya, still blind, is gaining strength against the Waif, and we see the long-awaited return of Bran, who was last seen on screen at the end of season four.
