Music promoter Live Nation announced Monday the HBO hit Game of Thrones is going on tour.

Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience will kick off in Kansas City, Mo., in February 2017 and will hit 28 cities in the U.S. and Canada and will bring the GoT soundtrack to life.

The show’s composer, Ramin Djawadi, said the tour will be an “immersive visual experience” complete with live music from the show’s score and never-before-seen visuals from the show.

“The idea behind this is to showcase how the music enhances those experiences for the audience,” Djawaji said, referring to how the soundtrack to the show elicits emotions.

Fans can expect to hear live renditions of the music that accompanied Daenerys’ ships setting sail for Westeros at the end of Season 6.

Though Djawaji didn’t specifically say, it’s also likely that audience members will get to see Hodor’s death complete with visuals and a full orchestra.

“That was very hard to write because I, just like many other people, like him so much, and here I am writing the sad music on top of it,” Djawaji said about composing Hodor’s final soundtrack.

Tickets for the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience will go on sale Aug. 13 and can be purchased from the Live Nation website.
