'Game of Thrones' builds up music tour

10 August 2016, 14:12

New York - The creators of "Game of Thrones" are turning the blockbuster fantasy epic into a North American concert tour, bringing together both the music and new visuals from the series.

The tour next year will focus on the score composed by Ramin Djawadi, who will present the music with a full orchestra and what producers promised to be innovative video technology.

"By combining the music with state-of-the-art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of Westeros to fans in a live and unique concert experience," the German-born, half-Iranian composer said in a statement.

Djawadi, who also wrote the score for the Marvel action film "Iron Man," is teaming up on the tour with "Game of Thrones" network HBO and leading concert promoter Live Nation.

The tour will open February 15 in Kansas City with a total of 28 dates across the United States and Canada including at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Producers said that the tour would include original footage for "Game of Thrones," whose sixth season recently concluded.

Set in the fictional continents of Westeros and Essos, "Game of Thrones" tells the story of noble families vying for control of the Iron Throne, all the while on alert for an invasion of the "White Walkers" who lead hordes of the undead.

Season six broke an HBO record with more than 25 million viewers a week and 23 Emmy nominations, including for best drama, which it won last year.
