Next summer will be hard. Yes, we know winter is coming, but ever so slowly, and Westeros withdrawal symptoms will hit us harder than a Dothraki army as we look for a substitute for ‘Game of Thrones’, which is unlikely to be Season 5 of ‘Vikings’.
Fortunately help is at hand, as on June 1, the creator of the series’ immortal theme music (as well as the unforgettably haunting score for the opening credits of Westworld) is performing at the Royal Arena.
Close your eyes in the company of German-Iranian composer Ramin Djawadi and his orchestra and you’ll be transported to the iconic map of the opening credits in the time it takes Drogon to burn a thousand Lannister soldiers.
Furious if you miss out!
Seemingly as popular, but with less cause is the eternal, infernal ‘Fast & Furious’ franchise, which is showing no signs of crashing out at present.
Capitalising on its good name is the live stunts show ‘Fast & Furious Live’, which is heading to Copenhagen’s Royal Arena for three shows from June 15-17, some five months after its world premiere at the O2 Arena in London.
The show promises a “mix of extraordinary stunts, special effects and cutting-edge 3D-projection mapping”.
Furiously frenetic Friday
Not to be outdone, a number of music acts have announced visits to Denmark in the near future.
Belle and Sebastian are promoting a new album with a concert at DR Koncerthuset on February 21. Tickets cost 265 kroner and go on sale on Friday 29 September at 10:00 at drkoncerthuset.dk .
