The 2017 tour, produced and promoted exclusively by Live Nation in partnership with HBO Global Licensing, will use innovative music tour production and video technology that will recreate the various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos, as well as showcase footage from the show in addition to all new imagery created exclusively for the tour.
"Live Nation is honoured to be partners with HBO and Ramin Djawadi in bringing fans of the hit series a spectacular live experience centered around the music of Game of Thrones and performed using cutting edge technology to create a show unlike anything seen before," said Omar Al-Joulani, SVP, North American Touring at Live Nation.

"For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music's force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness," added Game of Thrones creators/executive producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. "The GoT Concert Experience will be unique in the history of concert tours, an eye-popping, ear-splitting, phantasmagoric blend of the show's visuals and Ramin's powerful compositions."
