Maryhill Winery presents Tears for Fears
September 17 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm$45 - $101
GOLDENDALE, Wash. – Summer concerts are returning this summer to Maryhill Winery.
Last year, there were no concerts at the showpiece winery in the Columbia Gorge because of road construction.
Maryhill Winery’s concert amphitheater seats 4,000 people and is perched atop basalt cliffs overlooking the Columbia River and provides stunning views of the Columbia Gorge and Mount Hood. It is owned by Craig and Vicki Leuthold, who founded the winery in 1999.
On Sept. 17, Maryhill Winery presents Tears for Fears, a show rescheduled from June 18 date because of a family illness.
Tears for Fears won the pop music spotlight via their 1983 debut album The Hurting, a sophisticated collection of inward-looking, electro-tinged pop songs including Mad World. The band’s most recent studio album, 2004’s critically acclaimed Everybody Loves a Happy Ending, signaled a welcome return for one of the biggest and best-loved bands of the post-MTV age, as well as one of the most eagerly anticipated reunions in pop music history.
The concert begins at 7 p.m., with doors opening at 5 p.m. Ticket prices from $45 to $101.
Concertgoers may purchase Maryhill wine by the glass or bottle. They are welcome to bring their own picnic or purchase food from onsite vendors. All food concessions are cash only.
In addition to premium reserve, reserve and general admission seating, Maryhill Winery also offers box seats that can accommodate up to 10 people. It includes a gourmet picnic basket, two bottles of wine, preferred parking and VIP access. Box seats are sold for all concerts as a package, not for individual shows.
Rail seating also is available on the terrace near the tasting room that overlooks the entire amphitheater. It includes VIP parking and access, a pre-concert dinner and a glass of featured wine. Rail seating costs $160.
Maryhill Winery was Wine Press Northwest magazine’s 2015 Pacific Northwest Winery of the Year. It also was the 2014 Winery of the Year at the prestigious San Francisco International Wine Competition. Earlier this year, Maryhill Winery won three double gold medals, two best-of-class awards and five gold medals at the fourth annual Cascadia Wine Competition in Hood River, Ore.
