Review: Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience

Fans of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ have to wait until later this summer to get the next season of the popular series but a show earlier this week at the Xcel Energy Center might have made that wait a little more bearable.

The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience kicked off a 23 city tour in St. Paul on Monday night and gave fans of the show, including me, an incredible music, multimedia, and special effects experience, unlike anything I’ve seen before.

Composer Ramin Djawadi led a full orchestra of touring musicians and local musicians in a show that ran just over two hours, with a 20-minute intermission.

Several giant video screens played clips from the show while the orchestra played some of the more popular songs from the Game of Thrones soundtrack and various special effects like fire, fog, snow and leaf confetti falling from the ceiling gave the crowd plenty of eye candy to enjoy.

Djawadi moved to several locations on the massive stage playing solos on various instruments and talking to the crowd but didn’t offer much insight into the songwriting process or any behind the scenes insight, just small chit chat.

From the Red Wedding to the Battle of the Bastards, this show covered all the big moments of Game of Thrones and left me very excited for the upcoming season. I really enjoyed this show, the music was great and sounded amazing, the effects were fun and I would totally recommend this concert to any Game of Thrones fans.
