the mu­sic is per­formed by the orches­tra. Djawadi also prom­ises that there were be some orig­i­nal footage shown too.

“What we’re plan­ning on do­ing is build­ing our own stage and have this be an im­mer­sive ex­pe­ri­ence,” he says. “Game of Thrones has so many col­ors and lo­ca­tions, I want to take the au­di­ence to Wes­teros, so when we per­form we want to have set de­signs and more in­volved vis­ual el­e­ments.”

This is not the first tele­vi­sion show to take its mu­sic on the road. Both Glee and Nashville have mounted pop­u­lar con­cert tours, but both of those fea­tured cast mem­bers per­form­ing num­bers that were pop­u­larised on the air. The Simp­sons mounted a con­cert at the Hol­ly­wood Bowl in 2014, but that was only in one lo­ca­tion for a week­end. This pro­gram is dif­fer­ent not only for its scope, but also be­cause it is mostly or­ches­tral.

Djawadi thinks that see­ing some of the non-Western in­stru­ments he uses to cre­ate sounds will re­ward fans of the show and he is also ex­cited at the prospect of per­form­ing a song or two. Djawadi com­poses on the pi­ano, an in­stru­ment rarely used on the show. He pon­ders that a new ar­range­ment of the theme mu­sic for the pi­ano would be a good way for him to get in on the ac­tion, rather than just wav­ing his baton.

Djawadi doesn’t want to give away any spoil­ers. Of course, it’s in keep­ing with the spirit of Game of Thrones to keep ev­ery­thing deadly se­cret and then shock fans with an un­ex­pected turn of events. Fi­nally, there’s a chance to see that hap­pen be­yond our liv­ing rooms.
