PREVIEW: Game of Thrones: The Live Concert Experience

A promotional rendering of Game of Thrones: The Live Concert Experience.

Ask any Game of Thrones fan about what they like about the series and you’ll get a laundry list. The riveting stories, love-to-hate-’em villains, heroic struggles, the music – and what music! Excerpts of the award-winning score by Ramin Djawadi are frequently covered on YouTube, some racking up millions of plays – to say nothing of the actual soundtrack itself.

Composer Ramin Djawadi.

If you’re a Game of Thrones fan and junky-ing for a fix and mumbling about that whole “filming in winter” delay (fortunately, they’re not filming in Minnesota, where winter seems to have vanished already), worry not: you can get a fix this Monday, when Game of Thrones: The Live Concert Experience comes to the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul.

If you haven’t heard of this concert tour yet, don’t be surprised – the St. Paul performance kicks off the inaugural 24-city tour of the United States and Canada. Performances of familiar tunes and themes will be accompanied by multiple video screens, rotating stages, and more. A few favorites, like “The Rains of Castamere”, have been specially arranged by Djawadi – and pieces like “Light of the Seven” (also known by fans as “the Cersei is going to kill everyone music”) will feature Djawadi himself at the keyboard.

It promises to be epic – just, you know, develop any attachments to any characters. They could die at any time.

Game of Thrones: The Live Concert Experience plays on Monday, Feb. 20 at 8 PM at the Xcel Energy Center in St. Paul, MN.
