Based on the original score, Skyrim In Concert has “brand new arrangements” of Far Horizons (plays during outside, daytime adventures), The Streets of Whiterun (you can probably guess) and Dragonborn (that’s the one, you know, the main one), plus others.

Tickets go on sale next week, on October 4. TicketMaster’s the place and prices range from £26.50 for the cheap seats up to £76.50 where, rumour has it, you’ll be actually sacrificed to a dragon god at the conclusion of the evening. Sweet.
