The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience is currently touring the country, with composer Ramin Djawadi playing the show’s stirring score with the aid of a proper orchestra and choir. We reviewed it here, but felt like breaking down some of our favorite moments. If you go, and we think you should if you can, look out for these stunners.

Let’s begin.

“The Rains of Castamere”

The Game of Thrones score is stirring, but with a few exceptions, there aren’t many parts for vocalists. And when there are, it’s usually “ooh ahh ahhs,” as in “High Sparrow,” or scary hissing noises, as in “Son of the Harpy.”

That’s why it’s nice to hear a song with lyrics. Vocalist Stephanie “Stevvi” Alexander, who is traveling with the show, has a rich, throaty voice, and puts her own stamp on one of the show’s most recognizable songs. She’s a highlight throughout, really, even when she’s singing songs with no lyrics. She draws the eye and is a treat for the ears.

Also, when Alexander came out in a flesh-colored dress to sing the variation on “The Rains of Castamere” that plays during Cersei’s walk of shame, the audience started shouting, “Shame! Shame! Shame!” It was in good fun, and we encourage it.

    • I had pretty good seats directly in front of the stage, and I had no complaints. I’m not sure what it was like for people in different areas of the hall. There are screens everywhere, though.

  • I paid a LOT of money, and our seats were on the floor, directly to the side, so we couldn’t even see the jumbotrons. Plus, just because of how the arena was set up, there was a massive pole in our line of sight. There was a section of seats not filled, facing the stage, so we went to Guest Services and explained the situation and they comped us with better seats in that empty section. Funny thing is that the best seats are the cheapest. Those that sat a few tiers up, facing the stage head-on, had the best view in the house. I’d strongly recommend finding a layout map of the venue, and then trying to get tickets based off of that. The stages have been set up in the center of the arenas, so I would recommend avoiding any “side” sections, and try to get seats directly facing the stage.

  • Where can I buy the CD they sold at the concert? I love Stevvi Alexander’s version of Rains of Castamere. Please let me know.
