They’re not kidding when they call it the Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience! From the show’s actual composer Ramin Djawadi rocking out on an electric guitar before hopping on the piano and exploding in a plume of wildfire; to a violinist suspended 30 feet in the air while a cascade of red weirwood leaves fall from the ceiling above her; to snow and fire raining down on the stage and audience alongside the visuals of dragons and white walkers, it was – without a doubt – one of the most immersive musical spectacles I’ve seen in years.

A few weeks back – in the curiously incongruous setting of a gentlemen’s lap-dancing club – I had the great pleasure of meeting Sharon Needles: contestant, and ultimate winner, of RuPaul’s Drag Race. (Think America’s Next Top Model with drag queens and higher odds of finding a career once the show is over). (more…)
