    Second Night Better Than The First!
    I was here on both 9/11 and 9/12 for the Ghost concerts. The Forum is a very nice space, both acoustically and for visuals. I was straight back from the stage in 101 and had no issue with seeing everything that was going on. I dropped it to four instead of five because the venue had no idea where to have different categories of tickets line up the first evening. It was pure chaos and afterwards as well -- security pushing people walking towards the ride share lot into the parking lot to get around the building. With the number of cars trying to get out, it was dangerous. However, the second night they seem to have a handle on the lines and it went much smoother. Kudos to the kind staff who kept their cool, a little more training needed for those who didn't. Also, all the venue staff inside were very cordial as well. Great place to see a concert.

    Iconic
    As iconic an arena as one can name outside MSG The Forum remains a venerable institution next to the grandiosity of SoFi. Attended for a concert it is easy to appreciate decades of nostalgia in clean sight-lines, pure acoustics and the flow from outside to in. Highly recommended for the nostalgia but also for continued excellence.

    Nice Renovation. Good Sound. Expensive Parking.
    Same, maybe even better, sound. Recently renovated. Good memories of the days seeing great concerts and the Lakers and the Kings. Still a good place to see a concert. Way better sound than across the street at SoFi. Parking is way overpriced so if you're already upset at having to overpay for tickets thru the MONOPOLY TicketMaster and their 38% in fees, just be prepared to also feel ripped-off to park... and for Merch.

Classic venue for concert. We went here to watch the Eagles Long Farewell Tour on a Friday night - Jan 12th. Old and out of date but the acoustic is amazing. Super expensive food and drink. Terrible toilet facility - you have to walk down a dingy stairway into the basement. So, if you have problem with an injured/sprained foot, get someone to help. The Eagles was unbelievable however!

What a miserable, unprofessional operation they run! The most chaotic experience attempting to get an Uber after a concert here; total lack of planning, organization, communication, customer service. Had to *unsafely* leave the premises late at night just to get an Uber that could actually find me and take me home. Will never return!

From the poorly directed traffic on arrival to the forced one-way traffic on leaving, this place is a nightmare.

The Forum parking lot was full except for prepaid so we had to use the overflow parking at SoFi Stadium. But they had no one directing the three lanes of cars as to which lane they should be in so we were in the wrong lane until we got right up to the parking lot we could not use. Then had to get in another lane that Sent us around to SoFi. The paperless ticket entry caused no end of delay and long lines to get in. The opening act had already started so it was dark and we weren't sure where our seats were but ushers would only vaguely point that our seats were "that way" (the other side of the auditorium), leaving us to mill about in the aisle until the lights came up and we could see to find them ourselves. The seats are tiny and close together, no room for your legs at all; I'm 5'2" and my knees were folded up uncomfortably. Snack stand was cashless forcing my husband to switch glasses just so he could pay for his beer and read the card machine that turned out to only be asking for a tip (as if). On leaving we had to walk all the way around again to get to our parking but they wouldn't let us use the convenient walkway around the arena, we had to go into the forum parking lot and walk the longest route possible to get to our far away parking spot. Then they force us to all leave by the same route, putting us two Iles out of our way. I have lived in So Cal my whole life and been to the Forum countless times. Not only has it steadily gone downhill over the years but this was the worst expenirence I have ever had there. Absolutely no care or consideration for the customer. You had better hope your show is good because that's the only saving grace.

HORRIBLE SOUND. Earth Wind and Fire and Lionel Richie concert sounded like they were singing under blankets. The sound was muffled and you could barely make out the lyrics. I've attended Earth Wind and Fire concerts for 50 years and never has it sounded muffled like this. It was not the performers fault. Something wrong with the venue sound or the sound engineers working that night.
Never going back to this venue.

Saw Amon Amarth the other night: this venue is not a good place for a metal show. General admission (pit in front of the stage) was overpriced. The seats in sections give a vibe of an opera show. Far away from the stage, so you have to squint to see anything. Metal shows work great in places like Palladium or Wiltern, not Forum, which was initially designed as a sports arena.
The parking was $45. All nearby side streets have restricted parking (capitalism really cared about comfort of the residents). There is concierge type of beverages, food, alcohol: all properly overpriced. At least you can see planes flying over you. Also nice acoustic.
Probably will not see another metal show here. Unfortunately, I am not into sports and/or conventional pop music, so cannot judge those types of shows.

Great venue for a concert. Show we attended was awesome and cool to be in such an iconic building. Sound was great. Lots of couches seating etc on walkway outside before doors opened. Grabbed a pizza and it was actually way better than I figured it would be. Downs. Older facility so narrow corridor. Restrooms. Men’s outside and Dow stairs. Pain to get to. Leaving rideshare pick up are. Lot h. Is a total mess. Concert great leaving a mess.

Still during COVID pandemic when we attended concert, so many more restrictions with size of purse to enter, vaccinations, masks, etc. Sooo many people attending but I have to say the staff were helpful, courteous, and patient.
Their professionalism made the concert more calmer with attendees' emotions focused more on the music, the performers, and the excitement of being there at The Beautiful Forum!
