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.

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 .

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
