Game Of Thrones® Live Concert Experience

^^

When: Monday 10th February
Where:
First State Super Theatre, ICC Sydney

Following sold out, critically acclaimed performances across North America and Europe, the GAME OF THRONES LIVE CONCERT EXPERIENCE will come to Australia this Summer, bringing the music of Emmy® Award-winning Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi to life. As we say goodbye to one of the biggest shows and scores in television history, fans can relive the greatest musical pieces and footage from all eight seasons in an immersive concert experience, brought to life by an international cast of soloists, orchestra and choir, live on stage. The Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience has amassed close to a hundred shows around the globe and has been praised by audiences and critics alike as a must-see spectacle for fans of the television series. The Guardian described the show as "Westeros brought to dazzling life." Mashable called it "an epic musical journey," while the New York Times praised it as "a symphonic spectacular." Indiewire said "[Ramin] really outdid himself here with the soaring, searching score that gave the episode its own unique flavor while also selling its most emotional beats. It’s a true symphony at times" while Vulture aptly said “When Game of Thrones plays sad piano music, it’s time to freak out.” Having first conceptualized the tour several years ago, Ramin has personally developed the musical and visual elements of the concert to create a live experience that encompasses fan-favorite pieces from the entirety of Game of Thrones. Produced and promoted exclusively by Live Nation in partnership with HBO Licensing & Retail, the concerts use innovative music tour production and video technology to recreate the various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos as well as showcase footage from the series combined with new imagery created exclusively for the immersive show. The tour includes new musical arrangements from Game of Thrones’ eighth and final season such as the “The Night King” theme, Ramin’s epic 9-minute composition that went viral immediately after debuting on the show. Within days, the track garnered millions of streams across the internet, reached the top 4 most downloaded songs on iTunes and the top 18 most watched videos on YouTube, and dropped the jaws of audiences and critics alike. Ramin has won one Emmy Award® and been nominated for many more (including July’s recent 2019 nomination), as well as two GRAMMY® Awards. Versatility has defined his career, from celebrated television scores for Game of Thrones, Westworld, Jack Ryan, and Prison Break to feature films such as A Wrinkle in Time, Mountain Between Us, Slender Man, The Great Wall, Pacific Rim, Iron Man and Clash of the Titans. Ramin has even composed scores for blockbuster video games including Medal of Honor, Gears of War 4 and the upcoming Gears of War 5. In addition to premium concert tickets, there are also multiple VIP Experience packages to choose from, with options including a pre-show Medieval Banquet, photo opportunities with the Iron Throne, dedicated butler service of food and beverage to your seat, collector’s item tickets, priority entry into the venue and more. Be immersed in the thrilling world of Game of Thrones, brought to life as only a live orchestra can.

Hot Chip

^^

When: Friday 6th March
Where: Enmore Theatre

Described by The Guardian as “the greatest British pop group of their generation”, audio adventure addicts Hot Chip will make their triumphant return to Australia in 2020, locking in some huge party shows across Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne as they immerse themselves in the warm praise surrounding their latest album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy. Also in the country headlining Victoria's Golden Plains and Wollongong's Farmer and the Owl Festivals, the band will be ably supported on all sideshow dates (excluding Canberra) by Melbourne funk synthesist Harvey Sutherland (LIVE), himself in the midst of a globetrotting odyssey as he spruiks his latest banger 'Something In The Water'and a brand new studio band. Arriving with a reputation for sonic wizardry cultivated through nearly two decades of marvellously consistent output, Hot Chip have always had an ability to charm all who stand before them. A Bath Full of Ecstasy, their seventh studio album, builds on this reputation as it racks up some of the best reviews of their career. Singles such as 'Hungry Child'and 'Melody of Love'crystallise a celebrated sound as the five-piece bridge a sense of euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies and inspired vocal transmissions. The one-two punch of synth master Joe Goddard and inimitable vocalist Alexis Taylor, so recognizable from the band's untouchable back catalogue of gems ('Over and Over', 'Ready for The Floor', 'One Life Stand', 'Boy from School' etc) is on dazzling display throughout. Kicking things into an extra gear this time around though, was the production nous of Philippe Zdar (the French maestro behind the likes of Cassius and Phoenix) and Rodaidh McDonald (the Scot responsible for the best of The xx, David Byrne and Sampha, among others). Amazingly, this was the first time that Hot Chip have worked with outside producers, with the band generally relying on their own accomplished skill sets when piecing together their technicolour hymns. This new collaborative approach paid dividends with Zdar lending his “French touch” (a sense of space and air) to the title track and McDonald encouraging the band to transform brilliant single 'Melody of Love'from a 12-minute-long gospel influenced instrumental into a devastatingly transcendent mediation on togetherness and life. With a career littered in accolades including Grammy nominations, multiple Mercury Prize nods, several Gold albums and even a feature on The Simpsons, Hot Chip are one of the most decorated and much-loved bands in recent memory. They've transcended musical trends while remaining adoringly aloof at the absolute cutting edge, with albums such as 2006's breakout The Warning, 2008's brilliant Made in the Dark and more recently One Life Stand (2010) all gathering effusive praise and individual cult followings. “If you're looking for a cure, the water is so pure”, Taylor's lilting laid back voice chimes on A Bath Full of Ecstasy's title track. Australian audiences will await the chance to take a deep soak in the inviting sonic waters that surround Hot Chip at their first shows in this country since 2016.
