Came here to watch the Maroon 5 Red Pill Tour and had a blast. The venue was intimate and well ventilated. Would love to watch another concert here!

Old, classic venue where big-name musicians have played for decades. It's not very ADA-friendly (nor is it for those who get vertigo easily - the steps down to the floor are dizzying!!) but the acoustics are pretty great.

Parking is awful, seats are cramped, rest rooms are in a dungeon and the place is so crowded you can hardly move. The refreshment areas are far too small for the crowds. On a positive note, the acoustics and sound systems are first rate. Not thrilled about going back.

Came here to see the Saint Pablo Tour recently and been here a few other times to see other artists. I'm glad that this venue was revamped. I haven't experienced bad seating here (yet); so I definitely prefer this to the Staple Center. My only gripe is that there are no cup holders on the seats!

I like this venue a lot. Saw Above and Beyond here in February.

Only bad thing is that they turn up the AC so much. I feel like they do it on purpose so that you can go there and buy their sweaters. What a stupid waste of money.

Parking lot is nearby across the street. Plenty of parking available, but it's not free.

Seats are good. You can view the stage from anywhere, even in the nosebleeds.

I went to the Forum to watch a Ricky Martin concert last weekend. The tickets weren't cheap, which may have to do with the performer more than the venue. Parking was $25! A margarita $13. Nosebleed seats for a half full auditorium were $80 each. The rows of seats are so close together that my knees hung over the seat in front of me. I'm tall, but the short girl next to me even complained. This is an old complex and not worth the money. Tickets twice as close to the stage were just $45 each with parking at $10 and drinks at $9 can be had in beautiful San Diego (where I live). Unfortunately, I had commitments on the night RM played here.

I love going to concerts here. I brought my daughter to see 5sos and had a blast. It was small to me for some reason but that didn't matter.

Everything is held here from concerts to the circus to Disney On Ice to Church on Sunday morning. The Forum hosts it all.

Saw Sam Smith here last night and I have to say I am impressed with the new venue! Great sound and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Will be back! Note: ground is sticky so wear shoes!

You know this place was the bomb back in the day. However I do remember seeing Def Leppard here and having serious nose bleed seats. They looked like tiny specks on a stage. We worked out way down from the ceiling to some good seats without getting busted so that worked out. But yeah this place is huge so seat number matters.
