This was a great experience to watch the Tampa Bay lightning Take on the new york rangers! Even though they lost, it was still a fantastic game! If you are a hockey fan not from the USA go and experiance an NHL game, you will not regret it!

It already was a good place for a game, concert, or production, but with the improvements made for the Republican Convention in 2012 it is even better.

I have been to the Forum a few times for hockey, but this was my first concert there. I always enjoy the venue and this experience was no different. It has a nice feel to it, with a good variety of food options. Our seats were fairly distant from the concert stage but the sound was excellent and the concert... More

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 .
