Metro and Game Of Thrones
April 2016 saw Urban Soul Orchestra (USO) performing the soundtrack to ‘Game Of Thrones’ live in 7 stations across the United Kingdom with newspaper giant Metro. This activity took place to celebrate the premiere of the hit show’s Season 6, which aired in the UK on Monday 25th April 2016 on Sky Atlantic.
For maximum impact USO performed in major mainline train stations up and down the UK, including Glasgow, Liverpool and Birmingham as well as 4 stations in Central London including London Liverpool Street, London Waterloo, London King Cross St Pancras and London Victoria.
To ensure a smooth running of the project USO provided full PA and technical support, engineering all stations in London and working closely with production teams in the Midlands and Scotland.
A video of the performance from Glasgow and a montage of the bespoke activity can be found above and on our Events YouTube page.
The launch garnered huge activity on social media with Metro Events Planner Antoinette Mills issuing the following testimonial:
Metro worked with USO to fulfill a brief for Sky Atlantic's Game of Thrones season 6. To launch this new season we had USO quartets in seven mainline stations across the UK. We had great press, online and trade coverage of the events along with amazing social media traction and public awareness. It was a pleasure to work with USO.
