I was not expecting to jump out of my seat at the Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday night, but that’s what happened, when green flames shot out of the stage and scared me half to death.
Honestly, I was expecting The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience to be just alright, probably pretty cool. I wasn’t expecting to be blown away.
The arena was packed with GoT fans eager to hear the show’s epic soundtrack performed by Emmy nominated composer Ramin Djawadi. The energy in the room was high to begin with and then the performance was captivating.
In the interest of full disclosure, we were given press passes to the event, but considering the production value of the show and interactive experience, I would say the slightly higher ticket price was well worth it.
The arena experience added to the event and allowed them to pull out big tricks and a huge moving stage, but I thought the sound quality of the orchestra suffered in this space. I’d like to hear the music performed in a concert hall where the space was really suited for the nuances of orchestral playing.
