NORTHWEST ARKANSAS, May 9, 2019 – Fans will have the opportunity to experience the music of Emmy® Award-winning “Game of Thrones” composer Ramin Djawadi on Wednesday, September 25 when the 20-city amphitheater tour makes a stop at the Walmart AMP.

Tickets go on sale to the public Monday, May 13 at 10 am.

Hours are Monday through Friday, 10 am until 6 pm and noon until 4 pm on Saturday.

As we say goodbye to one of the biggest shows and scores in television history, relive the greatest musical pieces and footage from all eight seasons in an immersive outdoor concert experience.

Having first conceptualized the tour several years ago, Ramin will be reworking and redeveloping the musical and visual elements of the concert to create a brand new live experience that encompasses fan-favorite pieces from the entirety of “Game of Thrones”. The tour will include new musical arrangements from the series’ eighth and final season such as the “The Night King” theme, Ramin’s epic nine-minute composition that went viral immediately after debuting on the show. Within days, the track garnered millions of streams across the internet, reached the top four most downloaded songs on iTunes and the top 18 most watched videos on YouTube.

The inaugural run of the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience Featuring Ramin Djawadi kicked off in North America in February 2017 and was praised by audiences and critics alike as a must-see spectacle for fans of the television series. Following the success of the tour, Ramin embarked on a European run during spring 2018 before returning for a second North American tour in the fall 2018. To date, the show has amassed a total of 75 arena concerts across the globe.

The Guardian described the show as "Westeros brought to dazzling life." Mashable called it "an epic musical journey," while the New York Times praised it as "a symphonic spectacular."

The tour, produced and promoted exclusively by Live Nation in partnership with HBO Licensing & Retail, will continue to 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 series in addition to new imagery created exclusively for the concert.

Ramin has won one Emmy and been nominated for six Emmys and two Grammy® Awards. Versatility has defined his career, from celebrated television scores for “Game of Thrones”, “Westworld”, “Jack Ryan” and “Prison Break” to feature films such as A Wrinkle in Time, Mountain Between Us, Slender Man, The Great Wall, Pacific Rim, Iron Man and Clash of the Titans. Ramin has even composed scores for blockbuster video games including Medal of Honor, Gears of War 4 and the upcoming Gears of War 5.

The Walmart AMP (Arkansas Music Pavilion), a Walton Arts Center venue since February 2011, is Arkansas’ premier outdoor concert venue. The Walmart AMP has presented headlining concerts for the past 14 years. In its permanent home in Pinnacle Hills at 5079 W.
