See if any of your favorites made the cut. One band has played so many times, they can pretty much call the Gorge stage "HOME".

Where is the movie playing?
Locally, you can see the movie at Fairchild Cinemas, Queensgate 12 in Richland. Showings will be held in Walla Walla, Moses Lake, Wenatchee, Yakima, and Spokane.
We're so fortunate that with just a hop, skip, and a jump down the road, you can see internationally known acts on a slice of property overlooking the mighty Columbia River. Formerly known as the Champs de Brionne Music Theatre, from 1986-1993. The original amphitheater was owned and operated by Dr. Vincent Bryan and Carol Bryan, Years later, the venue would be purchased by Live Nation.
The Gorge hosts many festivals
The Gorge Ampitheatre has seen many acts over the years. The venue has become the featured site for several festivals, including Watershed, a 3-day music fest with traditionally Country artists.
