The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience

So a few weeks ago, Charles and I had a night out to go see the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience in Philadelphia. This was Charles’ big Christmas present that I got his this year – I don’t know about you, but the men in my life {minus the littles} are so hard to shop for! So instead of buying another sweater he doesn’t need and won’t really care about, I love to treat the hubs to fun nights out! 

When I first found out that Game of Thrones was putting together a traveling concert that would be coming to Philadelphia for one night only, obviously I knew I had to be in attendance. The hubs and I are both huge fans, we’ve seen all the episodes in the series, Charles has even read all the books!

Behold, the actual Game of Thrones, Iron Throne!

So what is the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience, you might ask. I know I did – Charles did too. 

It’s a night of Game of Thrones that features Ramin Djawadi, who responsible for the score in the theme song. If you are familiar with GOT, it’s the opening song, very powerful.

Ramin Djawadi was there performing on various instruments, along with a full orchestra and other main instrumentalists that play key musical parts in the Game of Thrones sound. He chatted between various songs with us, sharing insight and information about the music and the show.

If you aren’t a Thrones fan, I’m sure you’ve stopped reading by now, or have no idea what I’m talking about, but the concert took you on a story through the various houses and key moments in the series, leading with the music, but also sharing the seasons {winter is coming} of the show. Large moving screens played parts of the show sequences to go along with the music.

And you can bet there was fire!

When I booked the tickets, I really didn’t know what I was signing us up for but I knew that a night out can take a lot of planning and effort sometimes, in terms of childcare – ha, so I wanted to make sure we had good seats. I scored us floor seats – up close and personal with Ramin + the other musicians, and they were awesome.
#thisclose to the stage! Boom!

And along with the great seats, we got to be in on the action. We got to see the beautiful costumes representing the Wildlings, White Walkers, the Red Woman and inspiration behind the High Sparrow {#nerdalert}The different music that has been created for the various cast of characters for the show really set different tones and it was so amazing to be able to hear it by the original composer with an actual orchestra behind him.

Really beautiful stuff.

And I was trying to do research online to find out this soloists’ name, but came up short. She was incredible!

Here’s the set list I was able to dig up online:

  1. Main Title
  2. (Unknown)
  3. Goodbye Brother
  4. What Is Dead May Never Die
  5. The Rains of Castamere
  6. Reign
  7. Dracarys
  8. Son of the Harpy
  9. Mhysa
  10. Needle
  11. Light of the Seven
  12. The Winds of Winter
  13. The Bear and the Maiden Fair

It was a great night and I’m glad I was able to snap some pictures to share the night with you! If you are a fan and it’s coming to a venue near you, be sure to check it out, totally worth it!
