HBO is taking the music of Westeros on tour, and Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi says he can’t wait for fans to experience the show’s majestic score live.

Djawadi previewed the upcoming symphony tour at a fan event moderated by Isaac Hempstead Wright at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on Monday. Surrounded on stage by a Hall of Faces set, banners representing the series’ distinguished houses, and the Iron Throne Itself, Djawadi revealed that the idea for a musical tour sprouted during a studio session, where showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss and author George R.R. Martin was present.

“We’ve been working on it for a while,” Djawadi told EW. “So it just seemed now, after season 6, it was such a fantastic season, so we thought there’s a lot of material now to draw from.”
