'Game of Thrones.' Live concert. St. Paul. This winter. Arya excited yet?

Minnesotan GoT fans will get the chance to immerse themselves at the Xcel Energy Center during the "Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience" on Feb. 17, 2017.

According to a press release, the event promises an "immersive music and visual experience that will bring the Seven Kingdoms to life on a scale never seen before."

What does that mean exactly? Picture a full orchestra and choir led by Game of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi (who's responsible for THAT theme tune) taking fans on a "musical journey through the realm."

At the same time, broadcast in front of the thousands in the audience will be footage of various realms found throughout Westeros and Essos using "state-of-the-art" video technology.

Also included will be footage from the show as well as "all-new imagery created exclusively for the tour."

The 28-city tour begins in Kansas, and St. Paul is the second stop.

"For the past six seasons of Game of Thrones, I have been tremendously inspired to compose music to David Benioff's and D.B. Weiss' extraordinary adaption of George R.R. Martin's epic 'A Song of Fire and Ice' series," Djawadi said.

"Now, by combining the music with state-of-the-art technology, we are going to bring the astonishing world of Westeros to fans in a live and unique concert experience."

Tickets go on sale starting Saturday, Aug. 13 at livenation.com and range from $37-$97 before fees.

American Express Card members can purchase tickets before the general public beginning Wednesday, Aug. 10 at 10 a.m. through Friday, Aug. 12 at 10 p.m.
