The live show version of award-winning HBO series Game of Thrones will head to Europe in 2018 after a successful US tour earlier this year. It will return to North America for the autumn leg of the tour.
The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is headlined by the show’s composer Ramin Djawdi, who leads an orchestra and choir performing music from all seven seasons of the Emmy-winning programme.
“Bringing the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience to audiences earlier this year was a dream come true, dating back to an idea hatched over three years ago,” said Djawadi.
“The scale and spectacle of the production brought the world of Westeros to life in a truly immersive fashion, and I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to share the experience with fans not only in North America again, but also to cross the narrow sea for the first time and bring the show to Europe.”
The tour, produced and promoted by Live Nation in partnership with HBO Global Licensing, uses video technology that recreates the show’s fictional realms Westeros and Essos, as well as showcasing series footage in addition to new imagery created exclusively for the upcoming tour dates.
The inaugural run of the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience was three years in the making, kicking off in North America in February 2017.
“Building upon the incredible response we received from the first tour earlier this year, Game of Thrones fans are in for a treat when the updated version makes its debut in Europe and then returns to North America next year,” said Jeff Peters, vice president of licensing and retail at HBO.
“The Game of Thrones fan base reaches all corners of the globe, so we are excited a wider international audience will now be able to experience Ramin’s extraordinary talent,” he added.
Beginning on May 8 in Madrid, the tour will visit 20 European cities throughout May and June. The North American leg will kick off 25 tour dates on September 5 in Vancouver and conclude on October 14 in Toronto.
