Last month, we reported that Ramin Djawadi‘s Game of Thrones Live Concert Experience was returning for a second North American tour. If that wasn’t exciting enough, today George R. R. Martin announced he would host an additional date for his hometown of Santa Fe!

The special event will benefit Martin’s Stagecoach Foundation – a nonprofit “dedicated to eliminating the opportunity and wealth gap for New Mexicans in the film and television industry through free training and workforce development facilitated by film and television professionals.” Martin posted the news to his Twitter account; check out the video below.

Martin also spoke to Entertainment Weekly about the event, saying, “We’re a relatively small town and it should be a beautiful place to have the show. This will be the first time the show has come to New Mexico. I’ll play the host role to some extent. And it benefits my Stagecoach Foundation which provides education and opportunities and training for local youth, particularly disenfranchised groups…Ramin’s been amazing from the very first season and [his hire] was one of the great decisions [showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss] made right from the beginning.”

The concert will be held at the Santa Fe Opera on September 30, 2019 at 7:30 pm. Presale tickets will be available beginning tomorrow, June 25th at 10 am MDT. Sales to the general public start at 10 am MDT on June 28th.
