It's been a while since this 17,500-seat space was the city's go-to arena, and its fading halls were beginning to belie its rich history: "Showtime" Lakers, Gretzky-era Kings, '84 Olympics, Led Zeppelin, Queen and a ridiculously long set from Guns N' Roses. The Staples Center hogs the spotlight these days, but, as it turns nearly a half-century old, the Inglewood venue is poised to regain some of its former glory. Now, after a $100 million renovation—thanks to New York's Madison Square Garden Company—the Forum is shaping up to be fabulous once again. The reenergized arena shows off its facelift with six shows from the Eagles, complete with a revolving vinyl record of "Hotel California" on the roof, along with blockbuster sets from Justin Timberlake, Imagine Dragons, Paul Simon and Sting, and Kings of Leon with Eastside darlings Local Natives.
