Fans of Game of Thrones will know that while war, treachery and the drama of it all are what keep us glued to it, it could all fall flat without the show's fantastic musical score. The person responsible for that is the show's composer, Ramin Djwadi, and now you can catch him bring the hit series to life in the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience that will hit the 3Arena on the 24th of May.
Using state of the art technology, Djawadi leads an orchestra and choir performing music from all seven seasons of the iconic Emmy award-winning HBO series in what's set to be a truly immersive experience, and honestly, it sounds unmissable if you're a fan of the show.
The inaugural run of the Game of Throne Live Concert Experience kicked off in North America in February of 2017. "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 show won huge praise from critics on its first run, with The Guardian describing it as "Westeros brought to dazzling life". Mashable called it "an epic musical journey", while the New York Times praised it as "a symphonic spectacular".
A statement about the show reads: "As rich as the stories, intrigue and world of Game of Thrones, Ramin's celebrated music for the show has resonated with fans from the very beginning, as the meticulously constructed songs underscored the emotional weight of key moments between beloved characters, lent scale to massive battle sequences and brought to life songs referenced in George R.R. Martin’s books. Ramin's relentlessly popular title track alone has become an instantly recognizable pop culture phenomenon in its own right."
Ramin Djawadi's previous credits include the Grammy-nominated score for Marvel's 2008 blockbuster, Iron Man. Other film credits include Pacific Rim, Clash Of The Titans and Warcraft. In addition to Game Of Thrones, Ramin also garnered Emmy Award nominations for other television projects including the hit HBO series Westworld, Flash Forward (ABC) and Prison Break (FOX).
