Although, The Gorge Amphitheater is over 100 miles from Spokane, it's economic impact hits Spokane and all of Washington State. With many concert goers coming from Spokane, Seattle and points in between to see the big name concerts that includes a number of live music festivals.
And soon we may see that economic impact grow significantly with Amphitheater owner, LiveNation , being now in the planning phases of a major expansion to The Gorge, making it one day a full destination resort.
Upon approval the first phase of work might begin in 2015 and once complete the new Gorge could include a Restaurant , cabins , more camping and RV camping sites, grocery and/ or convenience stores, outdoor cinema and even more stage space.
Beverly Hills,Ca based LiveNation owns and operates the 27,500 seat Gorge Amphitheater along with a pretty significant list of other venues around the US and the World . Although The Gorge outdoor music venue has attracted many big concerts the venue has remained largely rural with the most of the nearest services several miles to the north in Quincy.
No construction is expected this year and no official finalized plans have been shown as of yet ( to our knowledge ) . We will continue to watch this story closely...
