So get ready, because going on sale for $15 this Thursday, the tickets are sure to sell out fast. Here are the full details:

HBO® GIVES 7,000 LUCKY GAME OF THRONES® FANS
A CHANCE TO SEE THE SEASON 4 PREMIERE EPISODE WITH
AN EPIC FAN EXPERIENCE AT BARCLAYS CENTER, MARCH 20

Immersive Event Provides Fans of the Emmy®-Award Winning Hit Series an Opportunity to Watch the First Episode in a Setting that Matches the Show’s Epic Scale with All Net Ticket Proceeds Donated to Charity

To celebrate the April 6 return of the global phenomenon Game of Thrones, HBO will host “The Epic Fan Experience” on March 20 at the Cushman & Wakefield Theater at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. This spectacular, one-night only event will treat fans to a first-of-its-kind advanced fan screening of the fourth season’s debut episode. The experience will also include show costumes and props displays from the acclaimed traveling exhibition, photo ops on the Iron Throne and other special surprises.

The centerpiece of the night will be the blockbuster screening of the hotly anticipated new episode on a stadium sized screen for 7,000 of the show’s biggest fans.

Tickets for the event go on sale to the public at Ticketmaster on Thursday, March 6 for $15 (includes applicable taxes and service charges) with all net proceeds donated to charities: Nothing But Nets and Books for Africa.

“Game of Thrones has become a truly global sensation thanks to the show’s incredibly dedicated and loyal fans,” said Zach Enterlin, SVP of Advertising and Promotion at HBO. “To create an event that matches the excitement of the viewers and the epic scale of this series, we knew we had to do something really special. A fan screening of this size, at a venue like Barclays Center, feels like the perfect way to celebrate the new season of Game of Thrones.”

    I just went to the Ticketmaster wbesite, and this it what it said regarding online sales times:

    Onsale to General Public
    Start: Thu, 03/06/14 10:00 AM EST

    American Express
    Start: Wed, 03/05/14 02:00 PM EST
    End: Thu, 03/06/14 09:00 AM EST

    Does anyone know what that means?

    Thanks.

    Huck,

    I’m pretty sure it means that AmEx is sponsoring the event so anyone paying with an American Express card gets to buy tickets a day in advance.

    Basically, if you don’t own an American Express card you aren’t going. Which includes me. I live in NJ and I was really hoping to go. That’s some real poop.

    Pre-sale tickets like that typically have a limited number released with the rest being available when they go on sale to the general public. I don’t know that’s the case here, but I wouldn’t give up completely just because you don’t have American Express.

    Will HBO cameras be there before and after the event to air some footage of us fans and our excitement?

    Would love a 15min little special with some interviews of normal everyday fans and what they thought (no spoilers of course).

    Please HBO *puppyeyes*

    Bring on the spoilersss. I want to know if Balon kicks it in E1 just for the sake of the leech order, even though it makes sense storywise that he does after Yara has attacked the Dreadfort and before Moat Cailin, which is happening in the finale?

    7000…. well one of them must be a WiC reader. I have no doubt that on 21st of March everyone will read a recap here.

    But the fact that they show the premiere episode this early, shows that this year their production corset wasn’t that tight. They had time to breathe, to get the marketing right, the promotion right, even the trailer came earlier this year. Actually on time, since last year’s trailer was quite late. Season 3, I believe, was very close to not meet the deadline, but this year everything seems right on track.

    Enjoy the early show, you lucky bastards!

    Leo,
    I would start 2nd episode with his death, then have Team Dragonstone hear about it and argue about more fire sacrifices, then have the PW – neatly lets the storylines interact.

    Since there’s no Victarion cast and we have no idea where Yara will end up, it could be more likely Balon dies in the second half of the season.

    Abyss,

    I’m just as surprised as by direwolves actually existing. I’d love to see a donkra.

    According to that, zorses are actually more rideable than zebras, thereby making Vargo Hoat less fantastical!

    Turri,

    On the when do we kill Balon question, it makes most sense to kill him before Joffrey, building the tension of whether or not the leeches work and I think following their order. Yara/Asha can continue on in the medieval fashion of being out of the loop due to slow mail. After an exciting Dreadfort heist she can suddenly be called away from capturing Ramsay midseason by the news-by-crow of Dad’s death. And then she’s offscreen until the Kingsmoot next season.

    I vote for the death in the first episode, as an end scene or near-end scene. And as always, I call for a Jaqen cameo.

    Because Rygar is the hero WiC.net deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero. He’s a silent guardian. A watchful protector. A Dark Knight.

    Bruce Wayne didnt ask because he’s already loaded. He got his loot handed to him on a silver platter. A silver platter splattered with his parents blood on it, but a handout nonetheless.

    Yay!! My GF and I will be in Section 7 Row 17. I can’t help but wonder how I can get my picture taken on the throne if we cant bring a camera. Anyone know how that works?

    Hizdar for President,

    I’m sure you can buy one of you on it there.

    No tickets available (except for NYU students) at the official sale time. I wish the time of the presale had been part of the announcement.

    Yeah, I got mine for $33 on stubhub. Had the page open while I tried at 10. It’s just goddamn ridiculous that 429/7000 tickets were there before the general sale started. Scalpers!

    They were still available at ticketmaster.

    Whenever I try to buy on ticketmaster it just says “unable to process request” as if it’s sold out. Not sure if it’s because the site is overloaded or because it’s sold out already but I’ve been unable to buy tickets there.

    Eugene Toussaint,

    You just got crazy lucky, dude. I reloaded multiple time after 10am. Before 10am, no tickets; after 10am, NYU only. They must have added general admission at 10:07 or some nonsense. I did check it out as soon as I saw your first post, and they were already sold out.

    Punklunchbox,

    I think they might of just sold out, there was a brief moment where they were available. It was weird because at 10am they became available for only NYU students for like 5 min before general admission.

    Barclays website says the event starts at 7 but ticketmaster says the event is at 6. Can anyone confirm the time?

    Hizdar for President,

    They give u a redemption code after they take your picture and you retrieve it from an online database. At least thats how I’ve seen it done at concerts/sporting events

    Hizdar for President,

    If it’s like the King Tut exhibit I went to once, they’ll take a photo and print it for you a la disney land. Hope that’s the plan.

    ETA: Oh te database version is even better. Kids these days with their technology.

    There is a bar by Barclays called the Wolf and Deer. It’s a smaller cocktail place, so it might not be the best spot, but that name…

    I don’t even like going to the cinema because I can’t stand people talking, eating, texting, smelling obnoxiously of perfume/cologne, breathing, etc while I am trying to enjoy the film. Its all a distraction. How do you think 7000 rabid fans are going to react? Especially when Jaimes dick pops up on the screen? Cheering and jeering and making dumb comments, “Danys ass aint that fat in the book”.. Complete bloody mayhem. I’d be miserable.

    Just bought two tickets for $57 on stub hub. Bull shit but I was already so excited to go that i couldn’t give it up. Does anyone think that the “special surprises” would be actors/actresses attending the event? Because if the Milf of Dragons is there I am mounting her like Drogo did on their wedding night and no man in the seven kingdoms will be able to stop me.

    Leathra,

    Wait! The Vidette article said students would have the opportunity to see it…but it is open to the general public?!? It’s a 3 hour drive for me, but could be a fun road trip with the family. Gonna check it out!

    Btw, as a fellow Illinoisan, doesn’t it drive you crazy that everything is in NY and LA? Why not the Chicago area EVER? What ever happened to the old adage about playing well in Peoria? Humph!

    Can’t wait to read the reviews of the “experience” here. Spoilers-schmoilers! It’s only ONE episode.

    That is a truly awesome name for a bar at this event.

    So. There were 429 tickets on Stubhub just before 10. There were around 380 when I got mine. Later it was up to 491. That means at least 540 of 7000 tickets were being resold in under 24 hours. Considering how small batches are constantly being added and sold, it’s probably safe to say that at least a tenth of tickets went straight to scalpers.

    Right now there are 390 left, starting at $57. Of those, only 136 are below $100. (That’s my rough count, which is going to be off by the time I click post.)

    1. Are there really 254 people in the NYC area–who don’t already have a ticket–who are willing to pay over $100?

    2. There is a legitimate chance that scalpers net more than the net proceeds that will go to charity.
