As rich as the stories, intrigue and world of Game of Thrones ® , Ramin's celebrated music for the show resonated immediately with fans as the meticulously constructed songs underscored the emotional weight of key moments between beloved characters, lent scale to massive battle sequences or brought to life songs referenced in the books. Ramin's relentlessly popular title track alone has become instantly recognizable as a pop culture phenomenon in its own right.

The Emmy ® - and Golden Globe Award-winning series has captured the imagination of fans globally, making it one of the most popular shows on television.
“For the past six seasons of Game of Thrones, I have been tremendously inspired to compose music to David Benioff’s and D.B. Weiss’ extraordinary adaption of George R.R. Martin’s epic ‘A Song of Fire and Ice’ series,” says Ramin Djawadi. "Now, by combining the music with state of the art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of Westeros to fans in a live and unique concert experience.”
“For seven years, Ramin has been blowing our mind with his music's force, subtlety, and endless inventiveness,” said 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. We are more excited for it than anyone.”
“Game of Thrones has one of the most engaged audiences in television,” said Josh Goodstadt, Vice President, HBO Global Licensing. “We can’t wait to see fans and newcomers alike immerse themselves in Ramin’s incredible music and the world of Westeros through this epic concert experience.” “Live Nation is honored 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,” says Omar Al-Joulani, SVP, North American Touring at Live Nation.
