We went to the Freestyle Explosion concert and had a great time. There is not a bad seat in the Forum. The staff was very helpful and informative. The Forum was clean, convenient parking and the temperature inside was nice and cool. The sound permitting from the stage was amazing. Its was great to see the 80's rock the house... More

We paid an arm and a leg to see the Eagles there and unfortunately, we had a hard time hearing them sing over a very loud old man who wanted to gripe to anyone who had ears. They really need to do something to improve the sound quality, but I guess the place was built primarily for sports, or circuses.

Saw Montreal play the lightning great facility and the pregame in the square was a lot of fun and they take security very seriously with metal detectors at each gate.

I've seen some of my favorite concerts at the Forum. Blink-182, Green Day, Five Finger Death Punch, and best of all.. Metallica! Always a great time. Cold beer and friendly service. I prefer being on the floor as opposed to a seat. Separate entrance and not as crowded. If you get the chance, see a concert here. You will not... More

The concerts at the Forum are amazing the sound is awesome.There aren't really any bad seats,although I always try to get certain sections.The Forum is easy to get to and there is plenty of parking. They do sell food inside at a reasonable price and it is good.I would recommend The Tampa Bay Times Forum for good concert experience .

I attended and was nervous about being a senior, alone at night with so many stairs and security/parking concerns, I had nothing to worry about. Yes, there are a gazillion stairs to enter the venue, but they had an accessible elevator to take me right to my floor w/ instructions as to which way to walk. Parking right there was... More

My son is a baseball player and we went to see the baseball game between Blue Jays and Rays. I bought tickets of $41, the second row. We were very close to the field but still we couldn't see much of the game. I think that it is a good spot for a show. So another visit I will sit... More
