The National’s Matt Berninger Growled The Lannister Song at The Game of Thrones Live Concert

Unlike King Joffrey’s less-than-stellar reaction to Sigur Rós’s rendition of “The Rains of Castamere” on Game of Thrones, the audience at the Las Vegas leg of the Game of Thrones Concert Tour were pleasantly surprised when the National’s front man Matt Berninger came to the stage to sing his version of the Lannister anthem. The National’s recording of the song was also used in the series to remind viewers, in case they somehow had doubts after all the bloodshed, that the Lannisters aren’t really all that fun and lighthearted, even if Tyrion makes some good jokes. The 28-stop Game of Thrones live concert tour is helmed by the show’s composer Ramin Djawadi, and includes multiple stages, a full orchestra, a choir, and large LED screens that use footage from the series and video inspired by its medieval dragon-filled world.
