The Forum Gets A Facelift To Compete For The Spotlight

Posted: Updated:
Inglewood, CA -

Alice Williams has lived in Inglewood near the Forum for 42 years! She says she's seen the Jackson 5 at the Forum at other great acts. And, as she thinks about the renovation underway she's thrilled that great concerts may come back to the iconic landmark she calls a neighbor. She walks every morning for exercise by the circular center that opened to the public in 1967 as THE FORUM.

They became THE GREAT WESTERN FORUM. Next it was sold to a major church which was unable to make it a successful venue. Finally, last year it was purchased for 23.5 million by the Madison Square Garden Company.

Their plan is to turn the Forum into a great concert venue. The largest indoor facility for solely entertainment in the nation. They are looking to rival Staples Center, which is now home to the Lakers and Kings that used to call the Forum their home, and LA Live and it's entertainment events.

To Alice Williams GOOD! She's tired of paying $10 to $15 for parking Downtown. Now, she can walk to a concert and rock just like in the old days!

    How about a little lesson on conservation from Willie the Cat. Willie starts unrolling all of the paper until it is all on the floor. But you have to watch what happens next in this viral video.

    In 2013 the HTC One (M7) was one of my favs, so I was excited to see what the next gen model would be have in store. One word, "impressive!" Beautifully crafted, possibly the best on the market. Behold: HTC's One (M8)
