Music is coming from HBO Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience Tour featuring Ramin Djawadi. Hosted on March 29th, 2017 at the San Jose, California SAP Center. This full show shows everything before Season 7.
The all-arena tour was announced on August 8, 2016 at an intimate concert in Los Angeles, California. The tour consists of 24 dates in cities across the United States and Canada. The tour’s title is in reference to House Stark motto, “Winter is Coming.” The concert started on February 20, 2017 in Saint Paul, Minnesota and ends on April 2 in Portland, Oregon.
On August 8, 2016, composer Ramin Djawadi announced the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience Tour at an event at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles with Isaac Hempstead Wright, who plays Bran Stark in the series.
The tour features the show’s composer, Ramin Djawadi, conducting an 80-piece orchestra and choir, who performed highlights from the series’ musical score, on a 360-degree stage. In addition, LED telescoping and wall screens, and special 3D designs rise from the stage floor.
We really want to summarize the show the best we can, There’s a lot of different locations and events to cover. If you come and watch this concert, you really get a nice summary and a nice look back on the past seasons. The one I’m really excited about is ‘Light of the Seven,’ which was such a great surprise to the viewers, because it’s the first time we’re using piano, Besides the orchestra and the choir, we will have the piano and that piece to play. That’ll be really great live. – Ramin Djawadi
In an interview, Djawadi talked about the tour, saying, “I’m going through the music to adapt it more for a live performance, and I might have a vocalist on a piece that didn’t have one before, or lengthen another piece, I’m not bound to the picture anymore, so I can let the music tell its own story, and be creative about it.”

The concert contains multiple stages and the main stage (King’s Landing stage), features Djawadi as conductor with the orchestra and choir. On the other side of the stage (Winterfell stage), features another choir and also soloists. In between those stages, it features four smaller stages, with each being named after different locations from the world of Game of Thrones. There is also a runway between the two main stages, that is also a location.
The tickets were for P1 seats Section 114 Row 13.
