The future of Game of Thrones has been a topic of much debate of late, with news of just how much of the show is actually left, and even talk of a potential spinoff series, making the rounds. There are so many questions left unanswered, but we will apparently learn about an “extension to the Game of Thrones universe” soon... at a concert of the show’s music next Monday.


Series composer Ramin Djawadi and Bran Stark actor Isaac Hempstead-Wright will be in attendance for the Game of Thrones “Live Concert Experience,” teased with the appropriate moniker of “music is coming”:

Taking place next Monday, August 8th, at 11:30 am in the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles, the impromptu concert promises live music, a Q&A with Djawadi, and even a “selection of fan-favorite pieces from the popular Hall of Faces interactive exhibit, including the Iron Throne, the “Melisandre’s Flame holographic experience,” Arya Stark’s sword Needle, and costumes from Season 6.”

It seems like a bit of a random hodgepodge of Game of Thrones fan service delight, but the most intriguing tidbit comes in the fact that the concert will also apparently reveal “exciting new details surrounding an extension to the Game of Thrones universe.” Who knows what it could be—anything from as grand to the much-ballyhooed potential movie, to something as humdrum as a wider series of similar concerts could both be possible “extensions” to the brand behemoth that is Game of Thrones.

You know what to do the moment they lock the doors and start playing “The Rains of Castamere”, though...

Since Game of thrones borrows heavily from history, I would love to see the Westeros version of 1939.
