Yesterday I got to see Ramin Djawadi conduct "Game of Thrones Live" at Wembley SSE Arena. I'm a pretty big fan - I was at the premiere of Season 5 outside the Tower of London... and I even own 6/7ths of the soundtracks!
Here's how it went down (commentary pending):
After that the concert had kind of a 'closing credits' In Memoriam section of all the dearly (or not-so-dearly) departed characters of the show in the 7 seasons shown so far.... (note : it went on for MANY minutes, and I didn't photograph all of them)
So... that was all kinds of excellent. And once we left, and battled out way through the throngs of crowds from not one but TWO concerts, and got on a tube where holding onto rails wasn't necessary as the sheer overcrowding kept people upright... and after I got my train on the World's Worst Train Service <TM>.... I had to admit it was totally worth it.
Can't wait for the next one!
