The Madison Square Garden Company is revitalizing the iconic Forum. The Forum will be fabulous once again!
The Madison Square Garden Company is revitalizing the Forum to create a world-class entertainment venue that bridges its iconic past with today's state-of-the-art technology and amenities.
The Forum will have something for everyone - artists and promoters; LA music fans; and VIPs.
The Forum will book a broad scope of events with a focus on entertainment, including concerts, award shows and television/film productions and a select offering of sporting events. To accommodate a robust entertainment calendar, the Forum's interior bowl will be completely modernized to provide seating for 17,500 and can be converted to a half bowl to seat 8,000. The bowl will feature one of the largest general admission floors in the country and for our VIP customers; the Forum's unique interior seating configuration will provide one continuous bowl without suites, resulting in uninterrupted seating that includes all-new, open boxes to retain the theatrical feel of the venue. Additionally, all music fans will be able to look up from their seats and experience a unique "star-filled" LED ceiling that delivers a first-of-its-kind theatrical effect for a venue of this size.
The Madison Square Garden Company has a proven track record of securing top honors for the venues it owns, operates and acquires, and is committed to achieving similar results for the Forum. When the Madison Square Garden Company first acquired the Forum, MSG made a commitment to Inglewood that the Forum would be a source of employment for its residents, as well as a catalyst for its rebirth. With that commitment comes benefits for the community and Inglewood, including a number of rent-free uses of the Forum and its parking lot annually for events such as farmers markets. The Madison Square Garden Company also supports Inglewood's business community through membership and sponsorship of local business organizations; and collaboration with Inglewood businesses on local hiring initiatives.
The Madison Square Garden Company has hired Jason Lombard to serve as workforce outreach coordinator to oversee the company's revitalization of the Forum. On May 2, Clark Construction, MSG's general contractor, held a job fair on behalf of The Madison Square Garden Company to connect with local residents and businesses regarding all aspects of the revitalization, including demolition and abatement, roofing, masonry, plumbing, painting, shoring, HVAC work and more. Close to 1,000 Inglewood residents and small business owners participated in the job fair.
