The Forum History

The Forum is one of the most historic venues in all of Los Angeles. First opened in 1967, the arena has served as home to the NBA's Los Angeles Lakers during their Showtime years as well as the Los Angeles Kings of the NHL and the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks. After the opening of the Staples Center all three teams moved out of the Forum but it still remains an active venue for performing arts and sports. The Madison Square Garden Company bought the Forum in 2012 and aimed to return the venue to its glory days, this time with its primary use as a world class concert venue. These days that dream appears to have come to fruition as The Forum offers concerts by some of the biggest superstars in the music biz to people in the Los Angeles area.


The Forum Events

The Forum is known to sports lovers as the former home of the Los Angeles Lakers, and while functioning in that capacity it hosted the NBA All-Star Game as well as the NBA Finals. Additionally, the Forum has hosted Olympic basketball games, the NHL All-Star Game, the Big West Conference Tournament, and the PAC 10 Conference Tournament.These days the Forum is almost exclusively used as a concert venue, and just as it has a historic past of sporting events, the Forum has a long history of great musical acts who have played there including Guns N' Roses, Nirvana, The Jackson 5, Steppenwolf, Cream, and more, along with more modern acts like Backstreet Boys, Arcade Fire, Justin Timberlake, and more.


Los Angeles, California

As the city in California with the highest population, and the second most populous city in the United States, you can be sure that there are plenty of reasons to visit Los Angeles. You would be remiss not to visit the beach whether it is Venice Beach, Santa Monica, Malibu, or any of the other nearby beaches. A trip to Hollywood Boulevard will allow you to go along the Walk of Fame and see the names some of your favorite stars of film, television, radio, and music before you stop by Grauman's Chinese Theater and see where the biggest stars in the history of showbiz have put their hand prints in the cement. If you are looking for something more high brow head over to the J. Paul Getty Museum and see some of the world famous art hanging from its walls.


The Forum Seating Layout

The Forum seats 17,500 patrons and was designed to be reminiscent of the Roman Forum. It has become easily recognizable from the success of the Lakers during the Eighties and Nineties when the Forum would see many of Hollywood's biggest stars pass through its doors to watch a basketball game. Recent renovations have given the Forum a state of the art sound system, making it one of the premiere places in Los Angeles to see your favorite band or artist performing live.


Trivia

The Forum was built on the site of a former golf course and was dreamed up by Jack Kent Cooke who owned the Lakers at the time and wanted to bring one of the NHL's six new franchises to Los Angeles in 1966.
