Enter the world of Westeros with the "Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience,"  an immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before.

Using state-of-the-art technology, "Game of Thrones" composer Ramin Djawadi, along with a full orchestra and choir, will take fans on a musical journey through the realm - from King's Landing to Winterfell, along the northern stretches of the Kingsroad to The Wall and across the Narrow Sea to Braavos, Meereen and beyond.

Fans of the groundbreaking, critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning show will finally have an opportunity to immerse themselves in the "Game of Thrones" universe through the breathtaking score created by Djawadi.

As rich as the stories, intrigue and world of "Game of Thrones," Djawadi'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. Djawadi's relentlessly popular title track alone has become instantly recognizable as a pop culture phenomenon in its own right. Fan enthusiasm for the music from "Game of Thrones" continues to grow with each season.

The 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.

Beginning its journey on Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017 in Kansas City, Missouri, the tour will visit 28 cities across North America with shows scheduled at famed live music venues including Madison Square Garden in New York City and the Forum in Los Angeles, as well as arenas in Montreal, Boston, Houston, Las Vegas, Philadelphia and, on Feb. 23, Buffalo.

Tickets are on sale at www.livenation.com.

Djawadi's previous credits include the Grammy-nominated score for Marvel's 2008 blockbuster "Iron Man." Other film credits include "Pacific Rim," "Clash Of The Titans" and "Warcraft." In addition to "Game Of Thrones," Djawadi also garnered Emmy nominations for television projects "Flash Forward" (ABC) and "Prison Break" (FOX). He is now working on "Westworld."

Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, "Game of Thrones" is an epic story of treachery and nobility set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal.

"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," Djawadi said. "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 Benioff and 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."
