Discover the fabulous Forum, LA’s iconic entertainment destination since 1967. Originally designed to emulate the imposing grandeur of the Roman Forum, the facility was home to both the Los Angeles Lakers NBA basketball team and the Los Angeles Kings NHL hockey team until 1999 and has played host to a wide range of performers, including Elvis Presley, the Eagles and Michael Jackson.
The Forum recently completed a $100 million renovation to update its facilities. The venue now boasts the largest indoor performance space in the country, with over 17,000 flexible seats, superior acoustics, a renovated concourse, updated concession areas, and the latest lighting and sound technology.
Upcoming events for 2014 at the Forum include the Toby Mac Hits Deep tour, the Men’s Freestyle Wrestling World Cup, Kings of Leon in concert, and the Art Laboe Block Party featuring nine different performers and groups.
Tickets for Forum concerts and events can be purchased through Ticketmaster. Tickets and information are also available at the Forum box office, located on the Prairie Avenue side of the arena. The box office is open on event days only from 12pm until one hour after the event start time.

Located just ten miles from the Forum and close to top Los Angeles attractions like the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Dolby Theater and Sunset Boulevard, our West Hollywood boutique hotel offers the best accommodations, upscale services and a prime location close to everything you want to see or do in LA.
