The Forum
3900 W. Manchester Blvd., Inglewood, CA 90305

Many in southern California hear “Inglewood” and automatically think of The Forum. Back in the 1970s and 1980s, The Forum was “the place” to see a rock concert or sporting event. The Forum originally opened in 1967 and resembles a “modern-day Roman Coliseum.” The Forum was updated while maintaining its historic appearance and re-opened in 2014. Today, The Forum is “the only arena-sized venue in the country dedicated to music and entertainment.” Check the website for a calendar of upcoming events.
