‘Game of Thrones’ live concert tour will return in 2018

While Game of Thrones fans settle in for a long wait for season 8 to arrive in 2018 (or 2019), HBO is bringing back its live concert experience with composer Ramin Djawadi.

Djawadi announced via Facebook today the Game of Thrones Concert Experience series is returning for a second run in 2018 after its successful inaugural debut last year. Djawadi will headline the tour in 20 cities across Europe and 25 cities in North America. He will conduct a live orchestra, soloists, and choir, and play instruments himself in front of video montages from all seven seasons of Game of Thrones.

If you’ve already seen the concert, don’t worry: The concert series is unveiling new footage from season 7 and a new custom stage design with state-of-the-art video technology. Fans will relive some of the show’s greatest (and most intense) moments like the Red Wedding, The Battle of the Bastards, Cersei burning down the Citadel, and the crumbling of the Wall.

“The minute you walk into the arena, it will feel like you’re in Westeros,” Djawadi said in the video announcement published on HBO’s Facebook page.

The European leg of the tour will kick off May 8 in Madrid, while the North American tour will kick off Sept. 5 in Vancouver and conclude on Oct. 14 in Toronto according to the announcement.

HBO subscribers can snag a ticket early during a special HBO pre-sale launching today at 6pm ET that goes through 10pm Thursday. Tickets for all dates go on sale starting Friday at 10am.
