Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) currently sits on the Iron Throne. But for how long?

Fans were crushed when "Game of Thrones" announced Season 7 filming was being pushed back -- and let's not even get into the torture George R.R. Martin has put fans through waiting on the next book -- but there is good news on the horizon.

The "Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience" will be at Philadelphia's Wells Fargo Center on Feb. 26, 2017. Philly is one of 28 stops on the tour. 

The event will feature a full orchestra and choir, lead by composer Ramin Djawadi, performing some of the most memorable songs from the show's soundtrack (I've heard someone joke about using the "Rains of Castamere: Red Wedding Edition" during their own nuptials. That's how awesome the music is on the show).

Settings that evoke the epic locations from the series will be used through the concert, along with some footage from the HBO show.

On Saturday, Aug. 13 at 10 a.m. tickets will go on sale online at Live Nation to the general public.
